Washington Post election coverage care of Jon Stewart?
Personally, the man can do no wrong in my book... except, maybe, that haircut he was sporting in Death to Smoochy. Nonetheless, Stewart's written outings to date have been top-notch. It's not new terrain for him, and most major newspapers carry the writing of humorists so the alliance makes sense. Whether or not the Post has the clout to entice the comedian is another question altogether. They've got the charming Hank Stuever and one of my fav TV critics Tom Shales on staff, but not since Woodward and Bernstein has DC's local rag been a must-read. With Stewart's literarily-inclined comedian pals Sarah Vowell and John Hodgman already on the payroll, why wouldn't Stewart go with the New York Times if he had an essayists' itch to scratch?
