The Daily Show on Eminent Domain

This is a couple years old now, but every fall when I teach eminent domain at the end of Property II, I am reminded of this excellent example of hard-hitting investigative journalism.  Jon Stewart and Nate Corddry try to get to the bottom of a potential eminent domain scandal involving Deepdale golf course on Long Island.  Apparently the town proposed taking the country club golf course through eminent domain under the rationale that the public would benefit from access to the private course.  This story came out the year after Kelo

So, for a holiday procrastination or study break (and featuring an appearance by Rodney Dangerfield) watch the clip here: The Daily Show, "Course Correction."
