Jon Stewart revealed his love for Anderson Cooper during his wide-ranging interview with Rachel Maddow.
His admission came during a segment of the interview in which Stewart said that the cable news media is too focused on covering issues from an explicitly political, left versus right perspective. A better one, he said, could be what he called "corruption and non-corruption."
As an example of what he meant, he brought up Cooper.
"One of my favorite things..Anderson Cooper, I think he does a really nice job, and he's fun to watch," he said. "He's got a bit on his show that I love called 'Keeping Them Honest,' which is just so funny to me, because...it'd be like me [saying] I've got a new segment called 'Telling Jokes To An Audience'...isn't that what this whole thing is?"
