Blair - Daily Show Interview 14/09/10

#1
In an interview on the US Comedy Central's Jon Stewart Show yesterday Blair is confronted with points of view antithetical to his own apocalyptic bubble.
There's much that irritates -Stewart's inability pose a question rather than pontificate an issue- but by the middle of the Extended Part 1 it becomes more substantive.
Blair's views on the need to attack Iran are more than a little worrysome especially him having received a peace prize the night before.
He clearly is still living in a neocon bubble.
This is at best Paxman Light, and one would dearly like to see the line of questioning pursued to conclusion without Stewart's PoV, but I have yet to see Blair ever being confronted by the consequences of his decisions elsewhere on TV.
So leave it to a Jewish New York comedian to confront him on his wars against Muslim nations!
