This One's for You, Jon Stewart

Jon,

You visit me almost every night and make me laugh almost to the verge of tears, without fail. You held my hand through the crazy Presidential election and kept me from losing my mind. I love your interview style because it's more like a sit down with a friend, which is my style too. However, after what I just saw, well, you have some 'splaining to do.

You were giving Ariana Huffington a pretty hard time about her new book. And your feelings about blogging seemed pretty transparent to me. I realize that you don't "get it". That you're too busy with your t.v. show to do something silly like writing in the blogosphere. I know that you put a tremendous amount of heart and soul into your show and that's why so many of us love it and you. But, that same heart and soul is what bloggers also do with their writing. The topics might not be serious or life-changing in many cases, but it's each of us as individuals, putting ourselves out there, revealing our insides for all the world to see.

So, the next time Ariana asks you to blog for her, you should take her up on it! Who knows? You might just have a little gem to reveal that we would never see on your show, but it might make the difference in some one's day for the better.

Hugs and Kisses,

Angie

P.S. Can you hook me up with some tix for your show? And a plane ride to NYC? Pretty please?

You know...I saw that last night. I couldn't agree with you more. I hate how blogging gets dismissed as frivolity or not to be taken seriously:P
Way to put it down to Jon Stewart. Now, can you get him to set me up with tickets as well;)

I love Jon Stewart. Did you see that he just put out a Teacher's edition of his America book?? So very funny.

But he doesn't get blogging? People that don't get blogging...and social media...it's mind boggling. Of course, I know people that still don't email...

JANE said...

Hmmmm.... doesn't get blogging....
maybe he is a little cyberspace challenged and doesn't want to admit it!
