Last night’s show featured in its opening segment a brilliant capsule presentation of the current Gaza conflict and the way in which it has been presented in the media.

Cutting through the heaps of hysteria, blather and partisanship, Stewart in under 5 minutes cut to the very heart of the matter without pomp or pretense.

It put every other media outlet to shame and is essential viewing for those who have become tired of the endless propaganda being beamed out on the airwaves.
