Jon Stewart: "Anybody with a Web site is part of the real media."

Jon StewartIs Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s Daily Show, comfortable as a member of the “real media”? asks the Sept. 17 issue of Entertainment Weekly (Pg. 11).

"In this day and age, anybody with a Web site is part of the real media,” says Stewart. “Media is so all-encompassing. But we’re not journalists, we’re comedians. … My colleagues are other fake news shows. Ted Koppel’s not my colleague."

What is Stewart’s take on his recent interview with John Kerry?

"It was a relatively mediocre talk-show experience,” he says. “Actually, that’s a great example of the limits of this program. People expected the show to create a ‘new paradigm of info-enter-propa-gainment!’ It ended up just being a comedian lamely making jokes to a presidential candidate who didn’t want to embarrass himself or appear stiff."
