Penn & Teller: Bullshit!

Citing Thomas Jefferson from "Profanity and Free Speech"

Environmental Hysteria

Sweatshops from "Wal-Mart Hatred"

Norman Borlaug on Genetically Modified Food from "Eat This!"

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! is an Emmy-nominated American documentary television series that has been on the air since 2003 on the premium cable channel Showtime. It is hosted by professional magicians/comedians Penn & Teller. Many episodes aim to debunk what the hosts see as pseudoscientific ideas, supernatural beliefs, popular fads and misconceptions, and often from a libertarian point of view, the political philosophy espoused by both Penn and Teller. The show criticizes proponents of what they perceive as nonsense and dishonesty—bullshit—often citing ulterior political or financial motives. The stated aim of the show is to apply critical thinking to misconceptions, and as is indicated by the show's title, the program adheres to Penn & Teller's characteristically blunt, aggressive presentation.

Supernatural subjects of episodes include alien abduction, alternative medicine, and ESP; other episodes cover social issues such as the War on Drugs, animal rights, gun control, education, and environmentalism.

Showtime has not permitted full episodes of Bullshit to remain on Google Video and YouTube, however some excellent short clips such as the ones above are available and of course all episodes are downloadable through Bit Torrent.
