Kambiz Hosseini and Saman Arbabi and Parazit

Jon Stewart is the prophet?  Yes, we learn this in this interview with Kambiz Hosseini and Saman Arbabi.  (I, personally, have my doubts about this, but hey, it's on The Daily Show. It must be true.)

Hosseini and Arbabi are  the co-creators of Voice of America's Persian News Network Parazit.  It's a news-comedy show, filmed in Washington, DC, and hugely popular in Iran, being watched via satellite and online.   The co-creators attempt to present humor and critique in a civil way, and Stewart leads the discussion to differences in rhetoric in Iranian politics versus politics in the U.S.  Prior to this interview I was unaware of Parazit, and I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't!
