Professor Dismantles O'Reilly's "Going to Pot" Propaganda

Research conducted by Columbia University professor, Dr. Carl Hart suggests that for the last three decades, law enforcement, politicians, and the media have been lying to Americans about the dangers of marijuana and other illegal drugs.

Dispelling the myths surrounding drug abuse and addiction is precisely the goal of Professor Hart's new book, High Price: A Neuroscientist's Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society.

Here in O'Reilly's Talking Point Debate "The Perfect Storm - Is America Going To Pot?", Dr. Hart sets the record straight and exposes O'Reilly's fear mongering and ignorance of the scientific facts... MUST SEE!!! MADE MY DAY! (The real action starts at 04:00)

I caught myself thinking, "why am I even watching this moron?"

I know what you mean and that is why

I suggested starting at 04:00. BTW, I only tuned in because Carl told me he was going to be on O'Reilly. I had forgotten how disconnected to reality this show is...

His news is directed at seniors...

About 45 minutes in he always has some scantly clad woman or proactive news story to keep them watching. Seriously 10 seconds into the program and the seniors are gobbling it up "Whats wrong with our soceity, dope smokers!"

My father in law is about as stereotypical new balance wearing neocon obama hating repulican as one can get. He is a big O'Reilly fan. We go back and forth a lot, but, in a sense, it's kind of nice, because he is so consistent with MSM. I can just ask him his opinion on any issue, and no thought/statement will differ then what is fed from the MSM neocons, O'Reilly has them hook line and sinker. By them I mean baby boomers, no doubt. It's sort of sad. They will get keep collecting those social security checks, keep gobbling up the news, and keep voting for "anyone but Obama". Which is deviously genious, the white neocons talk about Obama buying votes from the poor, they sit collecting their SS checks (welfare) voting for the other guy, Republicans... At least the democrats are more direct.

8.40.. "Your number is wrong" beautiful, then the followup...9.50 "Dr. Hart is correct" I'm glad he had the courage to stand against this as$.

Excellent assessment of O'Reilly's show and its intent...

except that I would not call it "news". It's more like brain washing.

The real question should be.....

is anybody still watching this idiot?

I put him right down at the bottom of the food chain with Morgan, Maddow, Hayes and Mathews....just to name a few

He calls his show a "no spin zone". Why? I would say it's because he never gives anyone much of a chance to talk if he disagrees with them.

It's always nice to see his ass handed to him when they do get the chance.

And the other guy, Dr A Blowhard.... is crackerjacks giving out degrees these days?

If you can read this thank a teacher. Because it's in English thank a soldier!

Looks like a good book. Thanks

High Price: A Neuroscientist's Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society

High Price is the harrowing and inspiring memoir of neuroscientist Carl Hart, a man who grew up in one of Miami’s toughest neighborhoods and, determined to make a difference as an adult, tirelessly applies his scientific training to help save real lives.

Young Carl didn't see the value of school, studying just enough to keep him on the basketball team. Today, he is a cutting-edge neuroscientist—Columbia University’s first tenured African American professor in the sciences—whose landmark, controversial research is redefining our understanding of addiction.

In this provocative and eye-opening memoir, Dr. Carl Hart recalls his journey of self-discovery, how he escaped a life of crime and drugs and avoided becoming one of the crack addicts he now studies. Interweaving past and present, Hart goes beyond the hype as he examines the relationship between drugs and pleasure, choice, and motivation, both in the brain and in society. His findings shed new light on common ideas about race, poverty, and drugs, and explain why current policies are failing.

Excellent book

Very interesting look into what truly destroys families (poverty) as well as the difference between how people in working class families treat their children or parents versus affluent ones.

PRICELESS !!!

He handed Bill O his head/ass on a plate! LOL!

O'Reiley is such an idiot I

O'Reiley is such an idiot I can only watch him with the intent of watching amusement. Kinda like going to the circus to watch the clowns...

The libertarian philosophical question out of this video is, would it be child abuse if a parent sent a child to THAT shrink?

LOL!

WOW....people under 30 addicted to communicating and

networking with each other...

exactly what I was thinking

while watching this video - all that communicating is making it very hard for the "establishment" to brainwash our youth!

LOL?

Did I watch the same video?

I didn't see a "dismantling" at all...

The black gentleman only got in like one or two "OK" points for a few seconds and the rest was Bill-O and the guy trumpeting what he was saying...

If you were on his show, could you do any better

Or would you sit back laugh and correct his fallacious information when you got a chance with hard facts.

I especially like "I am ON the council..."

LOL!!!

Some perspective...

Since June, Dr. Hart has had a successful book tour dispelling the myths regarding the dangers of marijuana and other illegal drugs.

O'Reilly's "Going to Pot" show was a classic FOX set up to make Dr. Hart look bad. Despite O'Reilly's opening 4 minute rant and with what little time Dr. Hart was given, he completely took the wind out of O'Reilly's sail to the point that O'Reilly had to reign in the delusional shrink. The funniest part to me was hearing Dr. Hart laughing in the background at the complete absurdity he was hearing.

The only "fail" was O'Reilly's twisted show...
