Jon Stewart is a genius. This is classic.
Update I: Straight news outlets can learn a whole bunch from Jon Stewart's approach. "The piece wasn't just the laugh-out-loud funniest thing on TV . . . but it was exquisitely reported, insightful, and it tapped into America's real anger about the financial crisis in a way that mainstream journalism has found so elusive all these months, in a time when we all need to be tearing down myths. As one commenter on the Romenesko blog noted, 'it's simply pathetic that one has to watch a comedy show to see things like this.'"
