Sadly, a large percentage of Obama’s base gets their “news” from Jon Stewart.
Via Beltway Confidential:
During a press gaggle today, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney suggested that President Obama’s interview with comedian Jon Stewart on the Daily Show was ‘more substantive’ than other interviews he had during the campaign.
Carney quoted a statement during the briefing about President Obama’s executive powers in foreign policy decisions from a Daily Show interview in October of 2012.
“Is the ‘Daily Show’ a proper platform for a foreign policy discussion like that?” asked a reporter in response.
