Here’s Jon Stewart talking Monday night about the revelation that America’s “extreme interrogation” techniques actually amount to torture. Somehow he manages to work The New York Review of Books, The Paris ReviewMcSweeney’s and The Utne Reader into the discussion. You’ll find it about 4 minutes in. Pretty funny stuff, although the commentary is sad when you get right down to it.

On a more serious note, Rahm Emanuel (highlighted in the video above) was almost certainly referencing excellent Mark Danner’s work in the NYRB, which you can find here.
