  • Jon wages war against Christmas.

    8.7
    Jon starts off the show by getting right into the news about a man getting shot on an airplane in Florida. Jon moves onto something more personal, the war on Christmas. According to Bill O'Reilly, Jon Stewart is the one waging the war on Christmas. Jon brings out Samantha Bee, who clears up the fact that the clip Bill O'Reilly showed was from last year. It's obvious it was old, since Samantha is pregnant now, and she wasn't in the segment.



    Jon moves on to the topic of homeland security, and shows President Bush repeating America is safer. There is a new report out, which criticizes the government because of the misuse of homeland security money and the fact that we're not truly much safer now.



    Back from commercial, Jon welcomes tonight's guest, David McCullough, author of 1776. In the first half of the interview, Mr. McCullough offers a few short stories from the American Revolution.



    Back from commercial, Jon and Mr. McCullough discuss the war and the people of that time.



    I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. The war on Christmas story was funny, and I enjoyed the interview with David McCullough.moreless
