Gestation crates hit The Dailyshow with John Stewart

A couple days ago John Stewart did a segment on the impending decision by New Jersey's governor Chris Christy to veto (or not) a bill that would outlaw the use of gestation crates in the state.  

While I wish Stewart would have given looked a bit more critically at the supposed statistic that 93% of New Jersey citizens want the ban, and no doubt hog farmers will be a frustrated that Stewart didn't give any serious discussion of why such crates are used (to prevent fighting, harm to human workers, etc.).  Nonetheless, it is funny.  And it does show how uphill is the battle many hog farmers face in trying to defend the practice.
