Jon Stewart: Doug Feith Interview

This is Jon Stewart’s interview with Doug Feith, the former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy for President Bush.

On somewhat of a serious note, I think this interview THE perfect example of the role of the media. Stewart clearly has his opinions, acknowledges them, and makes the goal of the discussion to “bridge the gap,” as he says.

Most importantly, he holds Feith accountable for what he says which, in my opinion, should be the chief role of the interviewer/host and doesn’t let him get away with deception or honest misunderstandings. It’s too bad we have to look to a show on Comedy Central for this kind of quality interviewing.

  1. Thanks for providing the link (Comedy Central’s streaming is truly a joke). The sad thing is I really think Feith believes what he is saying. Of course, it was a complete disaster and, unfortunately, it appears to be a taste of things to come (i.e. Iran).

    Peace be with you.
