(Newser) – Jon Stewart has taken down a lot of people on The Daily Show—but Monday’s guest John Yoo wasn’t one of them, and last night he apologized for the disappointing interview. Yoo, author of the Bush torture memos—or, as Stewart put it, “the memo that allowed the Bush administration to, I guess, hold people underwater for long periods of time”—“slipped right through my fingers. It was like interviewing sand,” Stewart said. Watch the apology—as well as Stewart’s aired and extended interviews with Yoo—above.

Talking head-aka-pundit is someone who offers to mass-media his or her opinion or commentary on a particular subject area (most typically political analysis, the social sciences or sport) on which they are knowledgeable. The term has been increasingly applied to popular media personalities. I would also think since he interviews someone 4 nights a week that would make him a professional interviewer, whether or not you thought his technique were professional. I'll give you the journalist part since objectivity is integral to journalism. Although, 'reality does tend to have a liberal bias'.

Myvoice, ……you seem like such a rational person………..Your message is not spewing hatred, & filth & in fact is intelligently constructed………………. Do you not feel uncomfortable amongst the unwashed teenyboppers that want cradle to grave gratification?…………Never mind that I disagree with your notion that waterboarding is torture, as that is debatable………….I suggest that you rethink the whole liberal vs conservative mindset & consider embracing the inevitable conclusion that;………..Myvoice is too intelligent to be a liberal……….
