In His Spare Time, Jon Stewart Has Been Helping Veterans Break Into The TV Business

(via NY Times)

When Stewart departs from The Daily Show this Summer, he’ll have even more time to do amazing stuff like this.

For awhile now, Jon Stewart has been secretly running a program through The Daily Show that’s designed to teach veterans the ins and outs of working in television. Vets have gone on from the program to not only work on The Daily Show, but elsewhere as producers and other behind-the-scenes positions.

Coupled with directing the highly underrated Rosewater, Stewart should be up for some sort of humanitarian prize.
