Stewart And Olbermann On Chatroulette

Last night, Jon Stewart gave a satirical look at the new social-networking website Chatroulette. His skit featured cameos by famous journalists such as Brian Williams, Diana Sawyer, and Katie Couric. But my favorite cameo, by far, had to be Keith Olbermann.

Stewart: Olbermann, what are you doing here?

Olbermann: Bearing witness to the new era of communication, Jon. It is Orwellian, sir. It is Big Brother, and Big Brother is none other than each of us. The Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping search societies at T1 speeds. A surveillance state gone viral. At long last, sir, have we no shame?

Um…I think one of us is supposed to take our pants off now.

You have to admire somebody—even if you hate them—when they’re big enough to lampoon themselves.
