Food Politics will mourn the passing of the Colbert Report.
What, you might ask, did the Colbert Report have to do with Food Politics?
For one thing, I was lucky (well, nonplussed) to appear on the show in August 2009.
The topic? Sugar trade policy.
Oh. Of course.
I explained what this was about in a blog post.
Better, Colbert did occasional pieces: Thought for Food.
Eater has collected them all in one place (thanks to Eleanor Talbot West for sending).
Or, if you want to watch them separately…
It was great while it lasted. I will miss the brilliant satire.
Addition: A reader just sent this link to Colbert’s in-character testimony to Congress on agricultural labor issues (from the expressions on the faces of the people sitting behind him, they must have been taking him seriously).
