Jon Stewart, I will miss you.

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/stewart-reveals-his-summer-movie-project-in-heartfelt-goodbye-hands-show-off-to-jon-oliver/

Im headed to where stars are born, Jon Stewart said Thursday night, on his last program before leaving the Daily Show for a three month hiatus. The Middle East in the dead of summer.

Stewart will be directing a movie based on the experiences of Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari, whom the Daily Show profiled in a 2009 field piece, a segment that may have gotten him in trouble with the Iranian government. Bahari was arrested one week after the piece aired.

One of the things he was interrogated about was being in contact with an American spy,” Stewart said. The spy was Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones, who, as Stewart pointed out, is neither a spy nor American (hes Canadian).

To the man who helps me preserve my political sanity, you will be dearly missed. I wish you the very best in directing your new movie. It's a fascinating story.


There's a wonderful video at the link which describes what's going on.

3. Thanks, glad to hear that. Someone told me he was quitting so I'm glad it is not true.

4. I stopped watching that

before they stopped broadcasting the show in the UK last year. Compared with the UK's own stuff I found him lame.

5. Stewart vs Colbert

 

I watch em both every night but Colbert is definitely the better of the two in my opinion.
