    Penn&teller are comedians but are on now talking about cheer&its so true, are they usually so right?

    They are throwing in the usual goofy stuff but talking about all the corrupt stuff going on and for the first time someone is finally saying the raw truth about the greedy people making money off kids and why these kids are getting hurt and why its the most dangerous sport. So far all true and ill be doing a hub on this since I think they are no better than the tobacco companies and know what they are doing. They lied to me and everyone I know. I have TBI now and think the law needs to look at the truth. Tell me what you think but all the companies and all the injuries&all the lies are true!

    I know my question as written looks like its in the wrong section but unfortunately its not. Wish I asked the question in a different way so someone would realize. Its hard to know where to put a question about a corrupt industry that so called comedians that happened to dig for the truth and uncovered something huge that only a few knew about other than the ones that are to blame. So where do I ask this question? In the humor section since they might know who they are but not law? Not sure. I guess I was hoping something here saw a show of there's before. I only saw this one that I am asking about but this is their 8th season so I thought someone knew or knows.

    I attended a small question and answer forum with the two of them, earlier this year. Though i disagree with their views on religion and a few other things, i found them to be well versed in the issues. They backed up their positions and fearlessly fielded questions.
    As for the cheer issue, i think the feats required of participants have become more and more dangerous over the past decade. I credit the proliferation of competitive cheer for the "arms race" or should i say "stunt race" and the dangerous levels it has taken the sport to. And yes, the promoters of these competitions are making a lot of money.

    Penn & Teller's show is one-sided, and is there for entertainment value. They raise some issues, but the way they present it is simply to ridicule the other side instead of an "fair" debate. As they said, "we usually invite the other side to say stupid things so we can make fun of them".
