You can excuse his Israel bias as a hold-over from his mother's family history. We all have our foibles.ctr wrote:...there is also the fact that he is anti-anti-vaccine crank
But his anti-vaccine stance is really hard to figure out. He behaves just like any tabloid-informed loony on that issue and he obviously hasn't done the research. He will mention doctors that support his point of view, but he is cherry-picking only those opinions that agree with him and not assessing all the data available.
That's a poor show. So while I'll laugh at him ridiculing the 'religulous' I consider him to be a funny man only. Unlike comedians such as Hicks, Carlin, Mark Thomas or Robert Newman, he's not someone who you'd be inclined to think has done their research and has brought you their funny take on it. He's a laughs first - facts second kind of guy. And that's a pity.
