Reason Staffers on Tube: Nick Gillespie on Stossel, Talking Food Police


Last night, I appeared on John Stossel's eponymous Fox Business channel show, as part of a program discussing nanny statism and the food police who have already come for your salt shakers, trans fats, and more.

The YouTuber therightscoop has clipped the relevant portion below:

The whole program is well worth watching, as it features former fattie and former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.), gastronomic Gauleiter John Banzhaf, and my nemesis from the above segment, Meme Roth, along with Eric Oliver, a Univ. of Chicago prof who is really interesting on the politics of food restrictions.
