Jon Stewart Interview

Bill Moyers interviews The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart:

I think we don’t make things up. We just distill it to, hopefully, its most humorous nugget. And in that sense it seems faked and skewed just because we don’t have to be subjective or pretend to be objective.

[...]

But the other news networks, you know, they have this idea that they’re being objective. But news has never been objective. It’s always…what does every newscast start with? “Our top stories tonight.” That’s a list. That’s an object…that’s a subjective…some editor made a decision.…So why not take advantage of that and actually analyze what you do think is important.
