‘I Recommend Journalism’

Unka Jon’s Pep Talk

“But here’s my point, media: this breakup has given you an amazing opportunity for self-reflection and improvement. Instead of worrying about whether Trump is un-American or if he thinks you’re the enemy or if he’s being mean to you or if he’s going to let you back in the briefings, do something for yourself. Take up a hobby. I recommend journalism.”

—Jon Stewart on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, “Jon Stewart to the Media: It’s Time to Get Your Groove Back,” The CBS Late Show, Feb. 27, 2017
