Jon Stewart did his homework to prepare for this 25 minute long interview and Miller was not remotely prepared for the questions that Stewart threw her way.To remind anyone who doesn't remember who Judith Miller is--she is a former New York Times reporter who is almost wholly responsible for convincing the American public of our need to go into Iraq, or as Stewart said last night, someone who "helped the administration take us to, like, the most devastating mistake in foreign policy that we’ve made in, like, 100 years… but you seem lovely,” And that was about the nicest thing Stewart had to say during the interview.As someone who was appalled at our national media's behavior in the lead up to the Iraq War, this was an interview I've been desperately waiting for. Stewart spoke for the millions of Americans who can't and won't forgive the politicians and media who marched us into this disastrous war that will never end. The Bush Administration's deliberate effort to wage a war of choice has caused irreversible damage to America that we may never fully recover from. Jon Stewart was able to use his platform to speak for all of us who are sick of being told to 'get over it.'You can watch the full interview at the Daily Show's Website. Then let me know what you thought of it. Was Stewart too tough on Ms. Miller or do you agree that she deserved every minute of it?
These discussions always make me incredibly sad because I feel like they point to institutional failure at the highest levels, and NO ONE will take responsibility for them. They pass the buck to every individual, other than themselves. And it's sad.

I thought it was a great interview, and one that I hope sticks with Ms. Miller for a very long time to come. I think the best part was what Jon said at the end: These discussions always make me incredibly sad because I feel like they point to institutional failure at the highest levels, and NO ONE will take responsibility for them.
