77. I'm talking about his current job, as hosting a show on Comedy
Edited on Sun Apr-30-06 02:00 PM by spooky3
Central. He is not currently in a role as a journalist and should not be held to journalists' standards (same with Jon Stewart). That's what makes it all the more remarkable that he (and Jon Stewart) are the ones doing the jobs the journalists should be doing.

But sorry to be unclear about that. And thanks for the info on his background--do you recall where you read it? His Wikipedia entry talks about his being involved in Improv when he was at college, and describes a career in comedy and acting. I didn't see anything else there about journalism but Wikipedia isn't perfect as we all know. The closest it comes is that he was on Good Morning America for a short time but it doesn't say in what capacity. It also says he's not French :-).
