One of the reasons we are in this business is to challenge ourselves. And I really connected to Maziar’s story. It’s a personal story but one with universal appeal about what it means to be free.
Jon Stewart • Discussing his plans to leave “The Daily Show” over the summer to direct a serious film, “Rosewater,” based on the life story of journalist Maziar Bahari, who was captured and imprisoned in Iran in 2009. Bahari, who has shown up on “The Daily Show” multiple times since his release, was accused of espionage by Iranian officials based on an interview he did with the show’s Jason Jones. Stewart will be away for twelve weeks, eight of which will be hosted by John Oliver, and the other four correspond with the show’s traditional summer break.

The Daily Show investigates investigative reporters

Holy shit. This is the most biting and scathing thing I’ve seen in some time. Wow. Everyone in a journalism school needs to see this. The news industry is awful. This is depressing. Watch this.

Spot-on satire. Too spot-on, unfortunately.

We don’t really have a whole lot to say about this one. Jon Stewart hit the nail on the head this time. source

Master Debaters: On October 6, Daily Show host Jon Stewart will face O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly in a 90 minute debate — appropriately named “The Rumble In The Air-Conditioned Auditorium” — to raise money for charity. Interested parties will be able to watch “The Rumble” via livestream, though not for free, and half of the event’s proceeds will go to a number of charities chosen by Stewart and O’Reilly. We wholeheartedly recommend clearing your schedule that evening, setting aside $5 for the livestream, and plan to spend 90 minutes glued to your computer screen. After all, "It’s why Al Gore invented the internet." source

Like streaming videos online, such as Comedy Central’s “Daily Show”?
Well, the fight between Viacom (which owns Comedy Central) and DirecTV has prompted Viacom to temporarily suspend some of its online videos. So we are all being punished in this dispute. http://bit.ly/NjL8Hb

Worth pointing out, though, that one of Viacom’s ways of attacking DirecTV, a Pop Up Video mocking a statement by DirecTV’s CEO, no longer works; it was taken private last night. A deal in the works?
EDIT: As pointed out by a commenter, someone else threw up the video here.
