I just got done taping the Daily Show, but you won't see the best part.
We were chugging along, Jon Stewart and I, talking about my book and the network news wars, and we had pretty much exhausted the allotted time when Jon kicked it into third gear. He started debating me more forcefully -- don't worry, he said, we'll edit this out -- and demanding to know why the networks can't provide "the truth" and whether they pull their punches to maintain access to the powerful. The crowd was hooting and hollering. It was great television -- but it's destined for the cutting room floor. Jon just didn't want to stop. He loves the debate the media, he was fully engaged, and who cared about the format? He wanted to keep going, and he did.
Further upside: I got a pretty nice goody bag.
