If the Times Has Lost Jon Stewart...

Josh Feldman writes at Mediaite:
Jon Stewart tonight failed to see exactly how Marco Rubio‘s traffic tickets and financial issues warrants front-page attention in The New York Times, and he proceeded to mock the paper for asking such probing questions.
Stewart reacted to Rubio’s financial issues by crying, “You bastard! Paying off law school loans? How dare you. At long last, senator, have you no sense of insolvency?”
He asked “how this is front-page news?” and kept just going after the Times for defending this “inconsequential gossip” instead of doing something crazy, like “exercising editorial control.”
