My vote for the best of the Jon Stewart this week goes to his program on Thursday night about the infamous video chat site, Chatroulette. It was awesome. I would say it was one of the best of the Daily Show. Certainly, it was one of the best coverage of Chatroulette.
The creepy chat site, which randomly matches two webcam users for a conversation, started out as kind of an underground by a bunch of 20somethings in Brooklyn. Somehow, they managed to connect Stewart with a number of prominent newscasters like Katie Couric, Keith Olbermann, and NBC News anchor Brian Williams, and members of the Daily Show cast like Jason Jones. What are the odds?
I found Keith Olbermann and Brian Williams the best. Liked the twist that he was making fun of the media that reported on this and then use the same media on the skit. If Williams ever decides to stop doing real news, he’d be great with Stewart on the Daily Show. They are great together.
Enjoy the show
