Jon Stewart on OprahAuthor: Jon Martin | Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010 |
Jon Stewart took some time out of his hectic schedule at The Daily Show to sit down with Oprah and be the interviewee for a change. Oprah’s interviews are usually very soft and boring but Jon took no time in making his presence known. As Stewart emerged from backstage, to loud applause, he wheeled behind him a piece of luggage, in case, ya know, Oprah decided to gift everyone a vacation again.
This was not a repeat of Jon’s fabled crossfire interview, the one that inadvertently(or not so inadvertently) brought down the entire show… why would it be? It’s Oprah, Jon knows not to fuck with Oprah. The interview was possibly one of Stewart’s best and you can tell that Oprah is a big fan of both him and the show. Did you know Stewart just finished a new book? It’s called Earth. I bought Stewart’s first book America during my first year of college and read the entire thing in a few days, it was like a hilarious text book. Jon’s show is a lot like that to, although it’s focus is humor, you come away from each Daily Show episode with a lot of information about current events and politics.
Through the lens of humor, Jon is able to show how ridiculous politics can be and educate us on the hypocrisy of those in power. There’s a reason he is the most trusted man in the news… some are even calling the last ten years the Jon Stewart decade. Make sure to support Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity and Stephen Colbert’s rally to Keep Fear Alive!
