Watch “The Daily Show” Dole Out Some Real Talk About Campus Sexual Assault

Watch “The Daily Show” Dole Out Some Real Talk About Campus Assault
Sometimes Humor Says It Best

When three students at James Madison University sexually assaulted a classmate on tape, their punishment was expulsion – after they graduated. Yes, really. JMU, along with 55 other schools, are under investigation for their mistreatment of on-campus assault cases. Other recent absurd assault punishments have included 30-day suspensions and book report assignments. Jon Stewart was just as appalled by that as the rest of us, so he got a real about the dismal state of affairs by bringing in “Daily Show” correspondents Jessica Williams and Jordan Klepper to offer some safety tips to students.

While We Fight For Birth Control Coverage, Medicare Is Spending Millions On Penis Pumps

It's A Whole New Brand Of Double Standard!

We know that conservative Republicans go batshit insane over the idea of the Affordable Healthcare Act covering preventative health care like birth control. But thanks to “The Daily Show,” we now know that America has bigger problems, literally: Medicare is spending millions on penis pumps. The program has spent $172 million in the past five years, to be exact. Apparently there are a lot of limp penises in need in the United States. How did contraception manage to be considered a more controversial use of government money than a contraption that makes your dick big and hard? Of course, Samantha Bee addresses this hypocrisy in a way that nobody else could. [NARAL]

Ronan Farrow Talks Going To College At 11 On “The Daily Show”

Ronan Farrow
Ronan's New MSNBC Show Debuts On Monday

This is refreshing: a member of the Farrow family is in the news and it’s not related to the Woody Allen child molestation accusation saga. Ronan Farrow, 26-year-old prodigy and son of Mia and maybe Frank Sinatra, is the host of a new MSNBC talk show, which debuts on Monday. The former Rhodes Scholar, who has logged time at both the United Nations and the Obama administration, will host “Ronan Farrow Daily,” airing at 1 p.m. EST. Last night Ronan hit up “The Daily Show” to discuss his unconventional life story: college at 11, working for the UN at 16, and Yale Law at 18. He’s a little bit more awkward and dorky than I would have thought, but that will add to his charm on his new show, I think? The cable news landscape (not you, Rachel Maddow!) needs all the help it can get, so I for one see smarty-pants Ronan as the freshest breath of air. [The Daily Show]

Watch John Oliver Bid Farewell To “The Daily Show”

We'll Miss You, John!

Last night was John Oliver’s last episode on “The Daily Show” as he gears up to host an HBO comedy series next year. He spent over seven years with the show, and even stepped in as host this summer. Jon Stewart refreshed audiences on some of Oliver’s best moments and made for a teary farewell. I couldn’t watch it without tearing up myself. Best of luck, John! [NYMag.com]

Malala Yousafzai On Having The Courage To Speak Out Against The Taliban

Malala Yousafzai On Having The Courage To Speak Out Against The Taliban
Listen To Malala's Amazing Answer

“I was not worried about myself that much. I was worried about my father. Because we thought that the Taliban are not that much cruel, that they would kill a child, because I was 14 at that time.

But then later on… I started thinking about that. And I used to think that the Talib would come, and that he would just kill me. But then I said, ‘If he comes, then what would you do, Malala?’ Then I would reply to myself, ‘Malala, just take a shoe and hit him.’ (Laughs.)

But then I said, ‘If you hit a Talib with your shoe, then there will be no difference between you and the Talib. You must not treat others that much with cruelty, and that much harshly. You must fight others, but through peace, and through dialogue, and through education.’ Then I said ‘I’ll tell him how important education is. And that I would want education for your children as well.’ And I’ll tell him ‘That’s what I want to tell you. Now do what you want.”

Malala Yousafzai, asked by Jon Stewart what gave her the courage to speak out against the Taliban —  who attacked the then-14-year-old girl for advocating on behalf of girls’ education – on “The Daily Show.” See a clip above and the whole inspiring interview at the link. [The Daily Show]
