Video: Jon Stewart Tells Tebow He Sounds Like An 'A**Hole'

Tim Tebow is making the media rounds to promote his new autobiography Through My Eyes, and last night he spoke with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Stewart asked Tebow how old he is, and when the Denver quarterback and former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida replied, “23,” Stewart said, “A lot of people might say you want to wait until you’re 24 to write an autobiography.” After listening to Tebow discuss how he how financially supports an orphanage of 600 children in the Philippines, Stewart told Tebow, “You sound like a real a**hole.”

Of course he was kidding. Stewart and Tebow go on to discuss the scandal that has enveloped Ohio State football, where players have been accused of exchanging team memorabilia for tattoos, cars and other favors.

'60 Minutes' Standing By Armstrong Story

Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong recently demanded “60 Minutes” apologize on-air for a May 22nd expose that featured former Armstrong teammate Tyler Hamilton saying Armstrong had used and received performance-enhancing drugs and had covered up a failed drug test from the 2001 Tour de Suisse.

“60 Minutes” says it’s standing by its story.

“Lance Armstrong and his lawyers were given numerous opportunities to respond to every detail of our reporting for weeks prior to the broadcast and their written responses were fairly and accurately included in the story,” said CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager. “Mr. Armstrong still has not addressed charges by teammates Tyler Hamilton and George Hincapie that he used performance enhancing drugs with them.”
