I was thrilled to discover on Facebook today that Gene Bauer of Farm Sanctuary was interviewed on The Daily Show!!!:
He did a kick-ass job, and I’m so happy that Jon Stewart allowed him to make some amazing points even though he had to get in the obligatory vegan jokes. I’m also impressed that Jon Stewart seemed to be quite supportive and even promotional of veganism, despite his meat and dairy jokes.
This signals to me major changes in the way the world looks at veganism. I was so happy to hear the audience roar in support of Gene. I’m sure they were his friends or vegans who knew he was going to be on there, but it still was amazing to hear.
