Cliff May's Full Interview

The Daily Show had Cliff May on last night, and the full interview puts an interesting light on the torture debate.

All three parts, because apparently MM hates Comedy Central’s HTML for embedding video. Hates it with the heat of a hundred suns. MM does seem to like a few other site’s version of linking video, but I thought it would be better to just send you to the The Daily Show, and give them the ad revenue bump.

The full interview is scads more interesting than the Cliff Notes version that wound up on the show. And on both sides–because you begin to understand the motivations of those who are acting as apologists for these actions.

    assertion at the beginning of the interview that neither Stewart or 90% of the audience had read the memos put me off and negatively affected how I perceived anything he said subsequently (and I only watched for another minute ’cause I was mad).  I have read the memos and I’d bet my next (crappy) paycheck that Stewart has, too.

    So, I’m off to watch the full interview just because you said to.  🙂

  2. The Comedy Central code has all sorts of extra junk in it. You need to find the embed tags and copy those and everything in between the opening and closing tags. Then you need to delete ‘allowscriptaccess=’, ‘allowfullscreen=’, and ‘allownetworking=’ statements.

    Here is what you are left with:
