The Daily show is intelligent satire and informative interviews. Jon is usually knowledgeable about his guests topics. He has that Tim Russert way of putting his guests at ease and then making them answer the hard questions. Sometimes he is to easy on his guests like T Boone Pickens who flat out stated that natural gas drilling has never contaminated a water well. That is a flat out lie that Jon only mildly disagreed with. I wish Jon Stuart was an hour show with at least 20 minutes dedicated to his interviews. Getting his extended interviews off his web site can be hard to impossible.
