Jon Stewart on Fox News Sunday

Jon Stewart appeared with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this weekend.  Wallace tried to nail down Stewart, trying to call him partisan, but Jon Stewart came back with a larger point that Wallace just didn’t seem to grasp:

“You can’t understand, because of the world you live in that there is not a designed ideological agenda on my part to affect ideological change, because that is the soup you swim in… Ideological regimes can’t understand that there is a free media somewhere, because they take marching orders.”

It’s a fascinating interview, with Jon Stewart finally making the point that his kind have been around forever.  That comedians have always pointed out absurdity wherever it exists.  If Jon Stewart is like anyone, it’s more a Mark Twain or a Will Rogers.”Only the jester dare utter the truth.”
