Jerome Goddard talking about bed bugs on the Colbert Report

in bed bugs, bed bugs in the media

Bed bugs hit the fake news again:

Here’s a clip from last week’s Colbert Report of Dr. Jerome Goddard of Mississippi State University trying to talk to Stephen Colbert about the pest, which featured in Colbert’s Threat Down segment:

Now, when do we get to see Dr. Michael Potter or Dr. Louis Sorkin on The Daily Show?!?

Update (9/21):

As Lou and Doug helpfully remind me below, Lou has already been on the Daily Show, which aired a CNN clip of Lou talking to a reporter and feeding his bed bug colony.

My apologies, Lou!

I actually linked to that clip last month, in the context of talking about that Isabella Rossellini video about bed bug sex, which picked up a lot of steam during this summer’s bed bug media circus.

You can view the Daily Show segment from August 24th here:

I’d still like to see Lou (and Michael Potter, for that matter) in the studio with Jon Stewart!

Actually my CNN interview had appeared on the Daily Show. The Colbert Report had called but I think the museum communications dept didn’t bother letting me go on, so they called J. Goddard.

Here is the link for the bed bug segment on the Daily Show that features Lou Sorkin’s CNN clip and a bizarre Isabella Rosselini PSA about bed bug sex.

Hi Lou and Doug!

Sorry Lou — my mistake — of course I remember seeing your CNN clip on the Daily Show, and I actually linked to that segment last month (see below).

I’d really like to see you sitting across the desk from Jon Stewart!
