California and Florida feel the effects of climate change, Hasan Minhaj interviews an Oregon pot grower, and Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering discuss "The Hunting Ground." (21:28)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Jon: WELCOME TO THE DAILY

SHOW, MY NAME IS JONSTEWART.

WE HAVE A FABULOUS SHOW THATWE HAVE PUT TOGETHER TONIGHT,

BY HAND, AN ARTISANALSHOW IF YOU WILL.

FILMMAKERS KIRBY DICK ANDAMY ZIERING WILL BE HERE.

BUT FIRST, ACCORDING TOSCIENCE, EARTH JUST

EXPERIENCED ITS WARMESTWINTER SINCE RECORD-KEEPING

BEGAN IN 1880.

WE EXPLORE WHY THAT IS JUST ARANDOM MEANINGLESS FACT IN OUR

NEW SEGMENT La, La, La, La, La,La, La.

I WONDER IF ANTARCTICA ISINCLUDED IN THAT.

OF COURSE, CLIMATE CHANGEWILL AFFECT THE ENTIRE

COUNTRY BUT NO NOWHERE MORESO THAN OUR TWO MOST PHALLIC

STATES, FLORIDA ANDCALIFORNIA.

I KNOW WHAT YOU ARETHINKING.

DOCTORS DO TELL ME,IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL TO HAVE A

NEVADA SHAPED CURVEIN YOUR PENIS.

THE IRONIC THING IS THATCLIMATE CHANGE IS GIVING

EACH OF THESE STATES THEEXACT OPPOSITE PROBLEM.

>> A TEN-FOOT RISE IN SEALEVEL WOULD PUT THE ENTIRE

CITY OF MIAMI BEACH ANDMUCH OF SOUTH FLORIDA

UNDERWATER.

>> THE GOLDEN STATE ISTURNING DEEP RED, 40% OF

CALIFORNIA IS IN EXCEPTIONALDROUGHT.

THE MOST SEVERE CATEGORY.

>> Jon: ONE IS TOO WET, THEOTHER TOO DRY, I THINK THE

ANSWER IS OBVIOUS.

CONDEMN AND DESTROY BOTHSTATES USING EXPLOSIVES.

PUERTO RICO AND GUAM, YOU'REUP.

STILL GOTTA HAVE 50.

HERE'S HOW FLORIDAIS HANDLING ITS CLIMATE

CHANGE ISSUES.

>> ATTORNEYS FOR THE FLORIDADEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTION SAID THAT ONCEGOVERNOR RICK SCOTT

TOOK OFFICE BACK IN 2011 THEYWERE TOLD NOT TO USE THE

WORDS CLIMATE CHANGE ORGLOBAL WARMING.

>> WE JUST COULD SAY THEWATER IS GETTING HOTTER.

WE COULDN'T TALKABOUT WHY THE WATER WAS

GETTING HOTTER. AT SOMEPOINT IT WAS MENTIONED THAT

SEA LEVEL RISE WOULD BEREFERRED TO AS NUISANCE

FLOODING.

>> Jon: OH, YES, NUISANCEFLOODING.

MOISTURE INCONVENIENCE,STATEWIDE JACUZZIFICATION.

IT APPEARS BY 2020 MIAMI WILLBE INVOLVED IN A SURPRISE

POOL PARTY.

THESE ARE ALL TERMS, OFCOURSE, IN ROGET'S DENIAL

THESAURUS.

ROGET'S DENIAL THESAURUS,THETHAURUS --

[BLEEP] ROGET'S DENIALTHESAURUS FOR WHEN YOU ARE

UNCOMFORTABLE WITH YOUR SONHAVING A BOYFRIEND BUT ARE

FINE WITH A LIVE-IN CROSSFITBUDDY.

OR PLATONIC FELLATIO PARTNER.

JUST DON'T LOOK UP FELLATIO.

NOW GOVERNOR SCOTT CLAIMS THATCONTRARY TO THE ALLEGATIONS

OF FOUR FORMER STATEEMPLOYEES, THERE IS NO RULE

AGAINST SAYING CLIMATECHANGE.

SO PRESUMABLY IF WE WERE TOSAY CHECK IN ON A STATE

SENATE HEARING FROM LASTWEEK, WE WOULD NOT SEE

FLORIDA'S EMERGENCYMANAGEMENT CHIEF TYING

HIMSELF IN KNOTS TO AVOIDVIOLATING THIS NONEXISTENT

UNRULE.

>> ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH THENEW PROCEDURES THAT FEMA

ISSUED JUST THIS WEEKDEALING WITH CLIMATE CHANGE.

>> MY UNDERSTANDING IS ATTHIS POINT WE WILL REQUIRE

THAT FUTURE VERSIONS OF OURMILTGATION PLAN WILL BE

REQUIRED TO HAVE LANGUAGEDISCUSSING THAT ISSUE.

>> WHAT ISSUE IS THAT?

>> THE ISSUE THAT YOUMENTIONED EARLIER REGARDING --

>> TOO MUCH.

>> Jon: WAIT, WAIT, DON'TLAUGH, THAT GUY, I THINK

THAT ONE GUY NEEDS THEHEIMLICH.

HE'S OUR FIRST CLIMATECHANGE CASUALTY.

WHY DID I EAT SHRIMP WHILELISTENING TO THE SPEECH?

THE NATION'S MORE WESTERLYPENIS HAS ITS OWN WAY TO

HANDLE CLIMATE EMERGENCIES.

>> THE NEXT MONTH THE HOMESMAY BE LIMITED TO OUTDOOR

WATERING JUST A COUPLE DAYSA WEEK.

RESTAURANTS MIGHT BE BANNEDIF SERVING WATER UNLESS A

CUSTOMER ASKED FOR THE WATER.

>> HOTELS WOULD NEEDPERMISSION FROM GUESTS

BEFORE WASHING THEIR TOWELS.

>> EVEN WORSE, CELEBRITIESWISHING TO RAISE ALS

AWARENESS WILL BE FORCED TOTAKE THE SAND BUCKET

CHALLENGE.

SO CALIFORNIA'S FIX FORTHE BIGGEST DROUGHT IN ITS

HISTORY, IS TO SLIGHTLYCURTAIL THE PETITION ALL

WATER USE THAT MAKES UP AWHOPPING 4% OF CALIFORNIA'S

WATER FOOTPRINT.

WHAT IS THE OTHER MORE THAN90%?

>> ALFALFA IS CALIFORNIA'SLARGEST ACREAGE CROP AND

ALSO ONE OF THE MOST WATERINTENSIVE USE BEING A FIFTH

OF THE STATE'S PRECIOUSWATER.

>> ORCHARD AFTER ORCHARD OFALMOND TREES.

ALMONDS DRAW BIG PROFITS BUTTHEY NEED WATER ALL YEAR LONG.

>> THE "L.A. TIMES" SAYINGTHAT IT USES 660 GALLONS OF

WATER JUST TO MAKE ONEBURGER.

>> Jon: WELL, THAT'S-- BUT ALOT OF THAT IS DUE TO

CALIFORNIA'S OUTDATED LOGFLUME SLAUGHTER HOUSES.

THAT'S -- WALT DISNEY, IT'SBETTER WE HAD A PICTURE OF

THEM DOING THIS, IT WASBETTER.

BUT LOOK, IFGROWING ALMONDS AND THE FOOD

FOR LIVESTOCK IS USING UPALL THEIR WATER, MAYBE WE

NEED TO CUT BACK ON -->> HEY STEWART, YOU CONSERVATION

-LOVING SON A BITCH.

>> Jon: WAIT, WHO, WHO IS THAT?ALMOND!

>> YEAH.

>> Jon: WHAT DO YOU WANT,ALMOND?

>> YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.

I'M HERE TO TELL YOU TO LAYOFF THE WATER RESTRICTIONS

FOR AGRICULTURE, CAPICHE?UNLESS YOU NEVER WANT TO SEE

ME CRUSTED ATOP YOUR FISHAGAIN.

YOU PLAY BALL OR SAY GOOD-BYETO TROUT ME-ONDINE.

>> YOU KNOW ACTUALLY,THE NUT CRUST ON FISH.

NOT MY FAVORITE WAY TO DO IT. ILIKE TO HAVE A LITTLE SPRITZ OF

LEMON, A LITTLE TARTAR, MAYBE ALITTLE BIT OF --

>> OH SHUT UP! HOW ABOUT THIS,YOU NONLACTOSE PROCESSING

BASTARD.

>> Jon: HOW DO YOU KNOWTHAT?

>> YEAH! SAY ADIOS TO MYDELICIOUS ALMOND MILK.

>> Jon: I ACTUALLY DRINK COFFEEBLACK, THAT IS NOT A BIG DEAL

AND BESIDES, NONE OF THIS ISPERSONAL, ALMOND.

I'M JUST -->> HEY, HO, WOAH!

THIS GUY CRACKINGYOUR HOLE, ALMOND?

>> Jon: WHAT ARE YOU DOINGHERE, BURGER?

>> THAT'S RIGHT, YEAH, YOUTHINK YOU CAN [BLEEP] WITH A

LITTLE NUT, BUT I GOT TOTELL YOU, I GOT GUYS ON THE

INSIDE.

YOUR INSIDES, I'M TALKINGABOUT YOUR COLON.

OKAY? AND ONE WORD FROM ME ANDYOU DON'T [BLEEP] FOR A [BLEEP]

WEEK.

>> Jon: YOU WOULDN'T DARE,BURGER.

>> OH, I WILL IMPACT YOU LIKE A[BLEEP] CEMENT BEEF BALLOON.

>> Jon: I ACTUALLY ORDEREDTHAT ONCE AT ARBY'S.

>> OKAY, SO LET ME HEAR YOU.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DOWHEN YOU GO TO A RESTAURANT?

>> Jon: NOT GET WATER.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

BECAUSE WHO GETS THAT WATER?

>> Jon: NUTS AND BURGERS.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

AND MEANWHILE YOU SHALL ONCEA MONTH WASH YOUR DISHES IN

HIGH SEA.

>> AND YOU WATER YOUR LAWN BYPEEING OUT DELICIOUS

ALMOND MILK.

>> Jon: YOU DO REALIZE WE DOALL THIS WATERING SO WE CAN

EAT YOU GUYS LATER, RIGHT?

>> WAIT, WHAT THE [BLEEP]?

>> YOU SICK [BLEEP].

>> Jon: ALMOND AND BURGER,EVERYBODY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Jon: EVERY SO OFTEN A

STORY COMES ACROSS OUR DESKTHAT FOR THE SAKE OF THE

WORLD, CANNOT BE IGNORED.

AND THEN THERE'S THIS STORY.

HASAN MINHAJ REPORTS.

>> THE DRUG WARS, IT'S A

NEVER-ENDING BATTLE AND NOWTHAT MARIJUANA IS BEING

LEGALIZED THROUGHOUT OURCOUNTRY, THE FIGHT IS COMING

TO OUR DOORSTEPS.

>> THIS IS LEGALIZED, THENEVERYBODY IS GOING TO HAVE

UNLIMITED ACCESS TO POT.

>> DRUGS MAKE PEOPLE MOREOUT OF CONTROL.

THE SMELL, THE STENCH, THEVIOLENCE THAT COULD HAPPEN

IN SUBURBIA HERE.

>> THE HAVOC IS ALREADYBEING FELT IN APPLEGATE,

OREGON, THE HEART OF POTCOUNTRY.

SO I HEADED THERE TO TRACKONE OF THE MOST VIOLENT

MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARTELS INTHE REGION.

BRAZENLY HE FLAUNTEDHIS WEALTH INSIDE OF HIS

>> WHAT IS A SUGAR BOB.

>> IT'S -- HE'S A SPIRIT DEERTHAT HAS COME IN TO ESCORT

TROOPY THROUGH THIS PASSAGE OFLIFE AND INTO HIS NEXT.

>> IS THIS DEER HIGH RIGHTNOW?

>> I DON'T THINK SO. SUGARBOB, COME HERE. HEY, SUGAR.

PAY ATTENTION.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

HE WAS HARBORING A STONEDDEER.

>> YOU'VE GOT THEM BOTH ON THEDOPE.

>> SUGAR, COME ON.

IT'S TIME TO GO TO WORK.

>> ACCORDING TO PA BUTT THISIS HIS SECOND SUGAR BOB.

THE FIRST WAS RESCUED AS ABABY FROM A NEARBY CREEK AN

SHORTY AFTER THAT ONE DIED,THE NEW SUGAR BOB

MYSTERIOUSLY APPEARED ANDGOT HOOKED INTO THE GRASS

LIFESTYLE.

>> SUGAR BOB, TALK TO ME.

PUPILS TOTALLY DILATED.

THIS DUDE IS STRUNG OUT.

>> HE SEEMS TO BE DOINGPRETTY GOOD.

>> YOU HAVE HIM SMOKING A VERY,VERY STRONG STRAIN.

>> HE DOESN'T SMOKE, HEEATS.

HE TRIED TO SMOKING ONETIME BUT IT BURNED HIS LIPS

AND SO HE DON'T TAKE A BURNT ONEANYMORE.

>> ARE YOU [BLEEP] KIDDING ME,PA?

OKAY SO MAYBE HE'S NOT ADANGER TO SOCIETY OR

CHILDREN BUT HE'S CLEARLY ADANGER TO DEER.

JUST ASK ANY VETERINARIAN.

>> WE'RE TOTALLY OKAY WITHTHIS.

>> OH MY GOD.

>> FROM THE VIDEOS THAT I HAVESEEN, THE DEER SEEMS

PERFECTLY HEALTHY AND HAPPY ANDCONTENT.

>> HE'S CONSUMING POT LIKE AMADMAN.

>> JUST LIKE MANY OTHER WILDDEER AND BIRDS.

>> IT IS HIGH IN PROTEIN ANDOTHER MINERALS.

>> HE HAD HIS WHOLE DEERLIFE AHEAD OF HIM.

AND I GUESS YOU GUYS DON'TCARE ABOUT THAT.

>> POT REALLY CAN'T DESTROYANIMAL'S LIVES.

>> BUT IT CAN DRIVE THEM TOA LIFE OF CRIME.

>> HE'S TAKEN A LITTLECANDY FROM THE STORE.

>> WHAT ARE YOU TALKINGABOUT?

>> WELL, YOU KNOW, HE'S BEENOVER TO THE STORE BEFORE,

ACROSS THE STREET ANDSTOLE CANDY FROM IT.

>> PETTY THEFT.

>> I HAVE SEEN HIM DO IT,YEAH.

>> I HAD TO SEE FOR MYSELF.

SO I RIGGED SUGAR BOB WITH ACAMERA AND WATCHED IN HORROR

AS HE RANSACKED THE LOCALGENERAL STORE.

AND IT WASN'T JUST CANDY.

HE FOUND HIS WAY INTOANYTHING WHITE, COFFEE

CREAMER, PIZZA BOXES, MYQUESTIONS, YOU NAME IT.

>> OH, LOOK AT THIS.

OKAY.

WELL, LEGALLIZATION MAY NOTBE CAUSING VIOLENCE OR

HARMING CHILDREN, DO WEREALLY WANT TO LIVE IN THIS

AMERICA?

>> SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLEFRIEND.

(APPLAUSE)HASAN MINHAJ

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> WELCOME BACK, MY GUESTTONIGHT,

THE FILMMAKERS BEHIND THE NEWDOCUMENTARY THE HUNTING GROUND.

>> I WANT TO SINGLE OUTFRATERNITIES BECAUSE IT'S

ACTUALLY A MINORITY FRATERNITIES

BUT YOU INEVITABLY GETARE CERTAIN FRATERNITIES

WHERE THE SEXUAL ASSAULT ISREALLY RAMPANT,

WITHIN JUST SAY THE LAST FIVE TOTEN YEARS SIGMA ALPHA EPSILON

HAD A NUMBER OF PROBLEMS.

>> SAE IS KNOWN AS A LOT OFPLACES AS SEXUAL ASSAULT

EXPECTED.

>> SEXUAL ASSAULT EXPECTED.

>> SAE, SEXUAL ASSAULTEXPECTED.

>> ARE THERE ANY PARTIES ORPLACES YOU GET WARNED NOT TO

GO.

>> SAE, SEXUAL ASSAULTEXPECTED.

>> THAT IS WHY THEY THREW INTHE RACIST THING, TO CLEAR

THEIR NAME FROM THE OTHERTHING.

>> PLEASE WELCOME KIRBY DICKAND AIM EAR ZIERING.

-- AMY ZIERING.

THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

(APPLAUSE)>> THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING US.

>> Jon: SO WHAT, ASTONISHINGWHEN YOU WATCH THIS, JUST AS

YOU SAW IN THAT CLIP, HERETHESE YOUNG GIRLS AND THERE

IS A SORT OF, AN AWARENESSTHAT THERE ARE CERTAIN

PLACES THAT IF THEY GO TO,THERE IS A HEIGHTENED DANGER.

BUT IT DOES FEEL LIKE, WELL,IF EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS, AND

THIS IS THE COMMONKNOWLEDGE, HOW IS THIS PLACE

NOT SHUT DOWN?

HOW IS THIS SAE, NOT SHUTDOWN?

IN WHATEVER CAMPUS THIS IS.

>> I THINK WHAT WE FOUND ISPEOPLE DON'T REALLY

UNDERSTAND THE MAGNITUDE, OFTHIS CRIME THE WAY IT'S

TAKING PLACE. THEY HAVE ALOT OF MISCONCEPTIONS.

THEY THINK IT'S JUST A DATEGONE BAD OR BAD HOOKUP OR,

YOU KNOW, MISCOMMUNICATION.

AND IT'S NOT.

WHAT WE FOUND IS ACTUALLY AHIGHLY CALCULATED

PREMEDITATED CRIME THAT CANBE PROLIFERATE ON

INSTITUTIONS THAT HAVE NOMECHANISM IN PLACE TO

ADJUDICATE AND INVESTIGATETHESE CRIMES AND PROSECUTE

THEM.

SO IF YOU HAVE THIS PROBLEMAND ARE YOU NOT TAKING

IT SERIOUSLY, IT CAN HAVE THESEEXPONENTIAL NUMBERS.

>> BUT I THINK A LOT OFPEOPLE ON CAMPUS DO KNOW.

THAT IS WHAT IS SO SHOCKING.

IF THE STUDENTS KNOW IT'S LIKETHAT THAN THE ADMINISTRATION,

PEOPLE IN THE ADMINISTRATIONKNOW.

AND THEY'RE NOT SHUTTINGTHESE PLACES DOWN.

THAT IS WHAT IS SHOCKING

>> Jon: IS THERE A CERTAINTOLERANCE ON CAMPUSES

BECAUSE IT IS, AS YOU SAY,IT IS A PARTY ATMOSPHERE AT

TIMES.

THERE CAN BE "HE SAID, SHESAID", SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT

COME FORWARD, AND THEY DON'TWANT TO, BECAUSE OF

LIABILITY OR FOR WHATEVERREASONS, STEP INTO THAT MIX?

>> WELL, I THINK THAT'STRUE.

BUT I THINK BASICALLY THAT,YOU KNOW, THE COLLEGES ARE

PRIMARILY CONCERNED ABOUTTHEIR REPUTATION.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVEANYTHING, ANYBODY TALKING

ABOUT RAPE ON THEIR CAMPUSAT ALL.

SO IF A RAPE HAPPENS, THEYWILL DO EVERYTHING TO SORT

OF DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROMIT I THINK THATS WHATS HAPPENING

>> SO WHEN PEOPLE REPORT,THEY DISSUADE THEM OR THEY DON'T

BELIEVE THEM OR THEY DECIDETHAT THEY, YOU KNOW, DON'T

REALLY WANT TO MOVE FORWARDWITH THIS CASE SO THEY DO

EVERYTHING THEY CAN TOENCOURAGE THE PERSON

REPORTING TO SORT OF JUSTMAKE IT GO AWAY.

>> Jon: IS THERE SOMETHINGINHERENT IN COLLEGE CAMPUSES?

IS THIS A FAR GREATER ISSUEOUT THERE THAN-- LET'S SAY

FOR 18 TO 24-YEAR-OLDS, ISTHERE A MUCH LARGER

EXISTENCE OF THIS TYPE OFATTACK ON CAMPUS THAN OFF

CAMPUS?

>> YOU KNOW, THERE'S SOMEDEBATE ON THAT.

BUT YOU KNOW, WE FEEL THATIT'S MORE DANGEROUS ON

CAMPUS THAN OFF CAMPUS.

THE THING IS, THESE ARE SOMEOF OUR MOST PRESTIGIOUS

INSTITUTIONS AND THEY SHOULDBE PROTECTING THE STUDENTS

THATS OUR FEELING

IT SEEMS LIKE NOW AND OBVIOUSLY

BEFORE THE FILM, THERESBEEN A HEIGHTENED AWARENESS AND

THERE ARE A LOT OF COLLEGES THATARE READDRESSING THERE AND

THE CONTROVERSY IS NOW THATTHEY HAVE COME DOWN TOO HARD

ON THOSE WHO HAVE BEENACCUSED, WHAT ARE YOUR

FEELING ON THAT?

>> WELL, YOU KNOW, IT'S MORELIKELY THAT SOMEONE WHO IS

ASSAULTED WILL LEAVE SCHOOLTHAN THE PERPETRATOR WILL BE

KICKED OUT OF SCHOOL.

SO NO, NOT AT ALL.

I MEAN JUST A VERY SMALLPERCENTAGE OF PERPETRATORS

ARE ACTUALLY KICKEDOUT OF SCHOOL.

THE NUMBERS ARE ASTONISHINGLYLOW.

>> ALSO IT'S STRANGE, ORSORT A PART OF RAPE CULTURE

TO BELIEVE THATFALSE-REPORTING IS A PROBLEM

WITH THIS ISSUE

ACTUALLY FALSE REPORTING OFRAPE IS EXACTLY THE SAME

AS ANY OTHER CRIME AND YOU DON'T

HEAR PEOPLE HEAR ABOUT THEFALSE REPORTS OF CARJACKING,

OR THE 2% OF FALSE REPORTS OFBURGLARY BUT IT'S STATISTICALLY

NOT ANOMALOUS

SO THAT EVERYBODY HAS TOKEEP IN MIND.

>> Jon: THIS IS-- IT IS AREAL CRIME, AND PERHAPS THEY

ARE TREATING IT AS THOUGH ITIS A VIOLATION OF THE HONOR

CODE.

ITS ONE OF THOSE LIKEDON'T COPY OFF THAT GUY'S

PAPER, AN TRY NOT TO RAPEPEOPLE.

LIKE, ARE THEY-- ARE THEYJUST NOT EQUIPPED TO DEAL

WITH WHAT IS A REALLYVICIOUS, VIOLENT CRIME?

>> WELL, YOU KNOW, THEYSHOULD BE PROTECTING THEIR

STUDENTS.

BUT THE REAL PROBLEM IS, ISTHAT A PERSON IS MORE LIKELY

TO BE KICKED OUT OF SCHOOLFOR PLAGIARIZING THAN THEY

ARE FOR ASSAULTING SOMEONE.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

NOW WHY WOULD YOU SAY THATIS, IS THAT AN EASIER THING

TO PROVE, ARE THEY LESSNERVOUS ABOUT, YOU KNOW,

WALKING ON EGG SHELLS AROUNDIT?

THEY FEEL LIKE IF THEYLABEL YOU A PLAGERIZER

VERSUS LABELING YOU A RAPIST,OR CONVICTING YOU OF THAT

ITS NOT AS DAMAGING?

WHAT IS THE REALITY.

>> EXACTLY.

THEY WANT TO KEEP THESERAPES AS COVERED UP AS

POSSIBLE.

SO AS SOON AS THEY KICKSOMEBODY OUT BECAUSE OF RAPE

AND THEY HAVE TO REPORT IT,THEN PEOPLE WILL THINK THAT

THEY'RE THE RAPE SCHOOL.

THE REALITY IS THE RAPES AREHAPPENING AT ALL SCHOOLS.

AND AT EPIDEMICPROPORTIONS

>> Jon: DOES SOMETHING LIKEWHAT HAPPENED AT UVA,

THERE WAS THIS HUGE EXPOSE INROLLING STONE, AND THEN THAT

GETS DEBUNKED WHAT IS

THE CHILLING EFFECT THAT HAS ONWOMEN THAT MIGHT WANT TO COME

FORWARD, ON SCHOOLS THAT MAYWANT TO

CREATE A MORE RIGOROUSPROGRAM TO DEFEND AGAINST IT.

>> THERE IS A HUGECHILLECT EFFECT

BUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO

REMEMBER ABOUT THE UVA, THATIS ABOUT BAD JOURNALISM AND

FAULTY REPORTING.

AND WE HAVE SEEN BADJOURNALISM AND FAULTY

REPORTING IN OTHER ISSUES.

>> Jon: I HAVEN'T SEEN BADJOURNALISM IN ANY OTHER

FIELD, IT'S REALLY JUSTTHIS ONE STORY.

>> BUT THAT THEY EVER BELOWSBACK ON THE ISSUE ITSELF.

WHY IN THIS CASE, WITHFAULTY JOURNALISM DOES ALL

OF A SUDDEN, THIS MUST NOT BEHAPPENING.

NO, THE REALITY IS IT ISHAPPENING.

AND AT REALLY THESE SCARY LEVELSTHAT IS WHERE OUR ENERGY AND

EMPHASIS IS.

>> Jon: DO YOU FEEL WHEN LIKETHEY SEE SOMETHING LIKE THIS

YOU'RE SEEING IT NOW

THERE IS A MOVEMENT TOWARDSTAKING THIS MORE SERIOUSLY,

TOWARDS DEALING WITH IT AT ACOLLEGIATE LEVEL IN A MORE

SERIOUS WAY AND IN A WAYTHAT IS PROTECTING THE

VICTIMS?

>> SLOWLY WE SEE THATHAPPENING.

I MEAN TO BE FAIR, THERE AREA LOT OF PEOPLE IN

ADMINISTRATION WHO REALLYTAKE THIS ISSUE SERIOUSLY.

BUT THE PROBLEM S IT'S THECOLLEGE PRESIDENTS HAVEN'T

STEPPED FORWARD.

I MEAN THAT IS WHAT I WOULDLIKE TO SEE.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ACOLLEGE PRESIDENT STEP

FORWARD AND SAY HOLD MEACCOUNTABLE, I'M GOING TO

FIX THIS AND ALSO WHILE THEYARE DOING THAT, I WOULD LIKE

THEM TO APOLOGIZE TO THEDECADES OF SURVIVORS THAT

HAVE BEEN ASSAULTED ON THEIRCAMPUS AND THEIR CASES HAVE BEEN

MISHANDLED.

THAT WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TOTHE SURVIVORS.

SOMEBODY HAS GOT TO STEPFORWARD AND I THINK WHEN

THEY DO, THE PRESS WILLSUPPORT THEM.

RIGHT NOW YOU DO NOT SEECOLLEGE PRESIDENTS SPEAKING

UP.

>> Jon: YOU DO SEE OBVIOUSLYWHEN YOU WATCH FILMS, THE

EFFECTS OF IT ARE DEVASTATING

>> FOR A LIFETIME, IN MANYCASES, ABSOLUTELY.

>> Jon: WE REALLY APPRECIATEIT.

>> THANK YOU.

>> Jon: THE HUNTING GROUND,IN THEATERS NOW,

KIRBY DICK AND AMY ZIERING.

>> THATS OUR SHOW, HEREIT IS, YOUR MOMENT OF ZEN.

>> DANIEL PODOLSKY SPENT THEAFTERNOON IN LAMBERT AIRPORT,

LOOKING FOR A RIDE.

HE WAS KICKED OFF HIS FLIGHTBECAUSE OF THE T-SHIRT UNDER

HIS JACKET.

THIS IS THE SHIRTADVERTISING A COMEDY CENTRAL

SHOW CALLED BROAD CITY.
