The Daily Show's Ferguson Police Shooting Solution Is for the Dogs

After the ongoing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri following the police shooting of Michael Brown, The Daily Show's Jordan Klepper tried to look at one police department that's doing something about it. The Austin Police Department has designed a program to respond to controversial shootings, hoping to train its officers to use their guns only as a last resort, but it wasn't exactly what Klepper was looking for.   Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/the-daily-shows-ferguson-police-shooting-solution-is-for-the-dogs/

The Daily Show on How the GOP Got Their Groove Back With Young, Black Candidates (Video)

Tuesday's midterm elections paved the way for some new faces in the Republican Party faces not usually associated with the GOP. Like South Carolina's Tim Scott, the first black Senator elected from the South since reconstruction, or Utah's Mia Love who became the first African-American female Republican to serve in the House. West Virginia and Iowa both elected their first female candidates into Congress, both of whom are Republicans. And two openly-gay Republicans were on the ballot this past Election Day.

Jon Stewart on 16 Years of The Daily Show and His Directorial Debut Rosewater

  In 2009, The Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones interviewed Maziar Bahari , an Iranian-Canadian Newsweek reporter, in a Tehran coffee shop. Just days before Irans presidential election, Jones, pretending to be a spy, demanded to know why Iran was evil. Somehow the joke was lost on Irans repressive theocratic regime, which arrested Bahari four days after the episode aired, claiming that the bit proved that Bahari was himself a spy. He was locked in solitary confinement for 107 days. In a fitting coda, Jon Stewart spent his summer vacation last year making a movie, his first, that depicts Baharis plight. Rosewater, which opens November 14, could be seen as a bridge between Stewarts TV present and his undefined but rapidly approaching future. The comedian has sat behind the anchor desk of his multi-Emmy-winning Comedy Central show since 1999, but his contract ends next fall and he is uncertain whether he wants a new one. Now, over two conversations in October inside the shows 11th Avenue studio, Stewart reflects on his life in the satirical-news business and the legacy The Daily Show will one day inevitably leave behind.   Read More... http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/10/jon-stewart-rosewater-in-conversation.html
