(CBS) On Monday's broadcast of "The Leonard Lopate Show," Anthony Bourdain, chef and host of the Travel Channel's "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations," talked about why he thinks what he thinks about the Food Network,
A couple weeks ago, Bourdain was quoted in TV Guide saying, "[Deen] revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and she's proud of the fact that her food is f---ing bad for you."
"I deserve the whacking I got back on that. I hate to beat up on her personally," said Bourdain. He added, "I stand by the substance of what I said. I think it certainly came out a lot more crass, personal and just plain nasty than I intended it. That said, is it necessary to serve a bacon cheeseburger between doughnuts?"
Bourdain talked about what it means to sell out, why it's not good that politicians ate fried butter on a stick at the Iowa State Fair, and why he tells his daughter Ronald McDonald is a villain.
