Wouldn’t it make sense to have a well-funded public education system to make us competitive with other Western nations? Nope. Not in this America. New Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is set out to make sure of that by undermining the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which funds public schools, in favor of vouchers to attend religious and private schools that may do more to stamp out any critical or creative thinking. And for corporate CEOs who have so much money it spills out of their eyeballs, stamping out any sort of thinking or questioning is the long game in maintaining a dumb American populace. Lee Camp digs into why it’s not in this administration’s interest for us to be smart in the latest Redacted Tonight.

Lee Camp is the host and head writer of the popular comedy news TV show Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp on RT America. The show also features correspondents John F. O’Donnell, Carlos Delgado, Naomi Karavani, and Phillip Chang. Salon.com said, "The finest TV satire thus far this election season has come from the Nightly Show and Lee Camp on Redacted Tonight." The show has also won a 2016 Telly Award for their live stand-up comedy special in New York City. George Carlin's daughter Kelly said Camp was one of only a handful keeping her father's torch lit. Camp is a former writer for The Onion and for Huffington Post Comedy. He created and starred in the viral YouTube show Moment of Clarity that was seen by millions, and he's performed stand-up comedy in a dozen countries and every state in the US. He has also been featured on Comedy Central, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, MTV, FOX & Showtime. Many know him from the viral clip of him on Fox News calling a “parade of propaganda and a festival of ignorance.”
