Jon Stewart to Eric Garner: You Think pain and grief are hard to digest (12/4/2014)

Jon Stewart opened Wednesday night’s Daily Show dropping the comedy to tackle the “utterly depressing” non-indictment in the Eric Garner case. He said, “I don’t know. I honestly don’t know what to say. If comedy is tragedy plus time, I need more fucking time.”

At least with Ferguson, Stewart said, there was conflicting testimony, “but here there is none of that.” And there’s no question about unreliable witnesses because there’s video and “we are fucking watching it.”

Stewart wrapped by literally just showing a video of kittens to cheer everyone up… but even then he couldn’t escape race issues.
