This was the worst thing I have ever seen. It was actually painful to watch. Dr. Campbell was like an old man that didn't know where he was. He didn't understand even the most basic questions and couldn't even explain the title of the movie, his reason for being there! It was like watching someone you once knew fall victim to severe Alzheimer's Disease. Campbell was clueless and embarrassed himself. He should have deferred this interview to Joel Fuhrman or someone that can talk at the celebrity level. I felt so bad for him...I was crouching in the corner. What a train wreck...poor guy...RETIRE!!!
Are you nuts? Rewatch it...and then picture say, Dr. Joel Fuhrman sitting there with Bill...he had an opportunity to really say something 20 million or more people would have heard and he sat there like he had just had a seziure. He needs to retire and the Docs take it from here.

I also agree and I just cringe when Dr. Campbell can't get the words out! I love T. Colin Campbell and his work, but it sure would be nice if he had more communication skills under pressure, which is what coming out on TV requires. I wish he would of just said: "Well, Forks over Knives means that with the power of the fork, as in what we eat, we can avoid the knife, in this case, the scalpel that operates millions of Americans in an open-heart surgery...". When asked what he means by “whole foods”, just mentioning “unrefined fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and nuts” would have done the trick, but he was vague, unfortunately. And about the confusing nutritional information out there, Bill was setting it up to talk about how industry has a hand in what information people receive, but Dr. Campbell also wasn’t clear... But all in all, some of the message got out there, and millions saw it. So thumbs up.
I have to disagree with some of the above comments.
I don t know if the extremely negative Don and mgalli (neither have posted previously in this forum) were looking at the same video as I was, but I thought Dr. Campbell was able to express himself well and he did an excellent job as far as bringing out issues regarding plant based diets(the great donut example made it clear what whole foods is not), government/big business complicity, lack of nutrition training of doctors,public confusion of nutrition issues, etc..
Maher appeared sympathetic and a few times helped Dr. Campbell make his points.
Thanks to Dr. Campbell and keep up the good work.
Bill Maher is a long-time vegetarian. I thought Dr. Campbell gave a horrendous interview. He seemed out of it. He didn't understand some of the questions. I was embarrassed watching him.
How old are you? (Just curious.) I'm guessing you're closer to 20 than you are to 60, right?
