The Daily Show And Colbert Report React To Arianna's 'HuffPost Sanity Bus' Announcement (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday night's episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart reacted to Arianna's big announcement on the previous night's episode of Huffington Post's pledge to provide buses from New York for people who want to attend Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity, scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. on October 30.

"Oh my God, Arianna just Oprah'ed the buses!" Stewart said. "By the way, I hope that her announcement was real and not some Huffington Post thing where it's not like actual transportation, it's just embedding a link to Greyhound. Like, I hope they're not just being bus aggregators in this situation."
