"Here's Your Moment of Zen": Jon Stewart

Yesterday, Jon Stewart - host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" for the past 17 years - announced he'll be leaving the show later this year.  Here's a "moment of zen".
In 2011, Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly faced-off when O'Reilly said he was upset rapper Common performed at the White House after saying he supported Assata Shakur. Stewart tried to explain that the rapper thinks Shakur is innocent, has a right to his opinion, and that you can’t ban such people from coming into the White House. Stewart schools O'Reilly by explaining that Bono wrote a song about Leonard Peltier and yet he has performed at the White House.
