Jon Stewart and Jesus’s Tomb
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is the Colbert Report’s parent show–Stephen Colbert got his start as a “reporter” on the Daily Show. It’s enormously popular with younger people–in fact, a substantial proportion of younger people say they get their news just from the Daily Show.
The styles of the hosts are different; whereas Colbert plays a character, Stewart is himself–taking an ironic, gently mocking stance toward the madness of the politicians and newsmakers.
Here he deals with James Cameron “discovery” of the tomb of Jesus. And Bill Donohue.
