People expect Jon Stewart to act like a journalist? Tampa Bay Times TV critic (and NPR contributor) Eric Deggans was surprised that Stewart wasn't tougher with President Obama in his Daily Show interview — from the left. "This close to such a tight election, it's perhaps not surprising that a comic known for his pragmatically liberal views would be careful challenging a Democratic president fighting hard for re-election. But I was hoping to see a little more of that 2010-era Jon Stewart Thursday. Because that guy really knew how to ask questions everyone wants to see answered."
Or at least liberals. Back then, he wrote fondly, "the comic met him as the voice of disappointed Democrats everywhere."
