Jon Stewart is awesome

August 27, 2008

Seen today in the SF Chronicle: “Comic rips media’s false sense of urgency“.


He railed on the political media’s poll-based coverage.

“What do you mean, polls are out?” Stewart, unshaven and wearing a gray T-shirt, said to the room full of suit-wearers. “You call 20,000 people, 900 were home. You ask them some ridiculous questions. And this is the core of your coverage? ‘Is Obama arrogant?’ Is that a question you can answer? That’s not even a metric you can measure. ‘Is McCain too old?’ “
