‘The Daily Show’ Tackles Martha Raddatz’s Debate Moderating

“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” tackled Martha Raddatz and her performance during the Vice Presidential debate (and how she compared to Jim Lehrer the week before). Unlike pretty much every segment on TV news that Stewart does, he seemed to have nothing but praise for Raddatz.

“I don’t know what it was, but it was amazing. The lost language of journalism being spoken on modern television, watching her moderate that debate with, oh my God, editorial authority. Its like going to Amish country and seeing them making beautiful chairs by hand. You’re like I thought this craft had been completely forgotten.”

Of course, he was on more familiar ground when he also took the cable news analysis of the debate to task.
