George Takei recounts his family's time in a Japanese internment camp on 'The Daily Show'

In case you missed it last week, actor and activist George Takei was on  "The Daily Show"  to talk about a new documentary film that has been made about his life called "To Be Takei." In the interview, host Jon Stewart expresses surprise to learn that Takei and his family were sent to a Japanese internment camp during World War II.  "Too few people know about that dark chapter of American history, when American citizens of Japanese ancestry were summarily rounded with no charges, no trial, no due processing -- the core pillar of our justice system -- and put in barbed-wire prison camps simply because we happened to look like the people that bombed Pearl Harbor," says Takei.  Read More... http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/george_takei_recounts_family_japanese_internment_camp_the_daily_show-2014-07

Jon Stewart Mocks Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden's Attempts to Seem Like Regular Ol Poor People (Video)

If the constant media speculation and massive book tour didn't clue you in already, the first desperate attempts by wealthy politicians to seem like regular working class folks should make it clear that the ever-earlier presidential campaign is officially underway. On the bright side, the encroaching campaign means that  Jon Stewart  gets even more prime material with which to work. Wednesday night, after excoriating the IRS, Stewart dug into Hillary Clinton's book publicity tour, which generated enough headlines that a simple canvassing of coverage could be seen as parody already. But specifically, Stewart was amused by Clinton's professed poverty, as well as her insistence that The Bible was the book she found most influential in her career.  Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/jon-stewart-mocks-hillary-clinton-and-joe-bidens-poor-off-video/
