Women of 'The Daily Show': Jon Stewart isn't sexist

Things have suddenly turned serious at "The Daily Show."

Following a recent report that the popular Comedy Central series and its host, Jon Stewart, are sexist, female staff members are fighting back.

More than 30 women at the satirical news program - including new correspondent Olivia Munn - signed off on an open letter on the show's website.

"While rampant sexism at a well-respected show makes for a great story, we want to make something very clear: the place you may have read about is not our office," the letter reads. "In fact," it continues, "just like the men here, we're indispensable."

Women account for 40 percent of the staff, according to the letter, and they aren't "all shoved into the party-planning department (although we do run that, and we throw some kick-ass parties)." In reality, they're employed in a variety of roles, working as accountants, producers, researchers, talent coordinators, writers and correspondents.

While the women admit their jobs are challenging, they wouldn't have it any other way. "Why have we stayed for two, five, ten, fourteen years? Because it's challenging."

It probably also doesn't hurt to have 47-year-old Stewart - described in the letter as the opposite of sexist - for a boss.

"He can be quite charming," the letter explains. "He's also generous, humble, genuine, compassionate, fair, supportive, exacting, stubborn, goofy, hands-on, driven, occasionally infuriating, ethical, down-to-earth and - a lot of people don't know this - surprisingly funny."

Ultimately, the women say, "when it comes down to it, 'The Daily Show' isn't a boy's club or a girl's club, it's a family - a highly functioning if sometimes dysfunctional family.

    As a man, a gay man nonetheless, when are we going to see a female host to "The Daily Show"? I mean, yes, "The Daily Show" & Jon Stewart do an excellent job of reporting news with a satirical slant, but this isn't "The Tonight Show," and Jon Stewart isn't Jonny Carson. So, how about Jon passing the torch to a woman? My bid is for Tina Fey. You ALL know, whether you agree w/ me or not, that Ms. Fey would turn that show OUT. TINA FEY FOR "TDS" HOST!!! Still love you, though, Jon.

      That's all well and good, but I don't think we should oust Stewart just because he's a man. Tina Fey is hilarious but I'm not sure if her style would be as good a fit as Stewart's. If eventually Stewart leaves TDS, it'd be nice to see a woman in there.

    I can't beleive stewart actually had to defend himself against such a stupid allegation. This such a reflection of the obnoxious nature of modern day gender-politcal feud women insist on fighting. It's getting to the point where it's poltically incorrect for men to take the lead anywhere anytime anymore.

    Yeah so what if more men watch this show and there haven't been that many female correspondents???!! Do shows that cater to women or have predomeintaly female staffs get this kind of criticism? The Daily Show is a poltical humor show, not a celebrity gossip show, of course it leans male. And it does so naturally, not out of discrimintation.

    A few weeks ago, along with my husband and two friends of ours, we saw a taping of the Daily Show. Seriously, if you ever get a chance to score tickets...DO IT. It was the most fun, and I was truly impressed by the staff. They had women handing us water while waiting in line (it was hot, but not as ungodly hot as it is the last few days). They informed us of the procedure of getting inside, going through security, getting into the studio, turning off cell phones and other important details. I have a cane due to a pinched nerve, and one of them asked if I wanted a chair while waiting in line outside. I declined but was still impressed at the offer. Jon seemed very charming, funny, witty and actually quite sweet. He asked if anybody had questions, answered what was asked with his incredible wit and humor. I would love to go back again. It was fascinating to see what goes on to put on such an incredible show, and the teamwork of the men and women is amazing. I don't care what some bitter ex-employee claims, I have no reason to think Jon and the rest of the crew are anything but professional, funny, hardworking professionals. Keep up the good work!!

    There are some who will discount Jon Stewart as JUST a comedian. They will point out that it is not the REAL news show.

    Stewart is part of a long and grand American tradition of political satire. Someone who can make us laugh and think at the same time. Someone with the talent to skewer the bombastic buffoons so full of hot air.

    I put Stewart in the same category as Thomas Nast, Will Rodgers and Johnny Carson.

    It's almost inconceivable to me that Jon Stewart is practicing misogyny in the workplace. What's more likely is a right-wing smear campaign, because Jon Stewart is one of the most intelligent and insightful political pundits ever. His show is absolute genius. Right or left, every American can get a solid dose of reality (and levity in our polarized political climate) catching a few episodes each week.

    I enjoy the Daily Show. It doesn't always illicit an LOL from me - sometimes I just scratch my head in utter confusion - but it's overall pretty witty (that rhymed) and quite insightful.

    Unfortunately it airs at the same time as the Mo'Nique Show (sighs), so I've had to sacrifice my sweet and intimate relationship with Mo'Nique in favor of a scratch-me-balls and watch-football-together friendship with Jon. It's not a REAL friendship, per se, but it's enough to fulfill my schizophrenic desire for companionship. God Bless you, Jon! I'll be planted in front of my TV tonight with my friendship bracelet on; I hope you'll have yours on too! (j/k – I'm drowsy from drinking Mountain Due and therefore incapable of writing something that makes sense, let alone is funny or even slightly meaningful)

    PS – I believe everything Olivia Munn says (she is my Amazonian Goddess; I sacrifice goats in her name), so to hell with the infidel Jezebel!

  51. Don't Get it

    Conversatives simply do not understand how it is possible to think for yourself and not follow party lines and rhetoric for fear of losing an election. Give them credit...conservatives will sink with the ship before ever saying Beck, Hannity, Rush, or any of the politicians are ever out of line...and you wonder why they do not have control of any major branch of government.

    At what point do you start thinking for yourselves and not following every single thing that the Fox new entertainers push down your throats. If you think Stewart is a Liberal..and a liberal only you are obviously insane. He would vote for the best candidate which is what we are all SUPPOSED TO DO vs. play I am on this "team" ..I am on that "team"

    None of us our on any team morons. Politicians, all of them, care about their own power, wealth, and careers before the people. For anyone to identify with a politician that would not even sit with you or your family at dinner because you are not good enough is the very definition of "insanity" Hopefully, the next generation actually have brains and can think on their own because the 30-60 age group is absolutely miserable at being anything but followers!

    And you wonder why leadership is lacking...we have no leaders in our population. People that follow Rush are leaders...lol..in their own mind they are...strange but true.

    I guess if you do not say absolutely ridiculous, crazy, and hateful things at every turn you are a die hard Liberal.

    I have seen him blast Liberals as much as Conservatives. The hate, Beck, Hannity...of course Stewart hates those people...so does everyone that is not some conservative blow hard. Because he points out their hypocrisy which is so rampant does not make him a bleeding liberal. IT makes him a man living in the real world...shaking his head hearing non-sense from both sides of the aisle. If you think he is a liberal maybe you should check his show out and not get mad when he points out the hypocrisy you call truth...he has no major agenda other than entertain his audience and keep some sanity in the crazy world of politics.

    What most of his critics don't seem to get is that both Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert exploit the notion (very well) that "truth is stranger than fiction". Yes it's comedy but they do speak the truth ultimately. All one has to do is look at the quality and variety of guests they have on all the time to understand that even the news industry respects these shows. Compare their credibility to say Glenn Beck and O'Reilly and you can see there is a very real difference between thoughtful sometimes biting humor versus slobbering baboonism appealing to the gullible fears of the extreme right!

    I've been a long time viewer of The Daily Show, and now The Colbert Report. I absolutely love both of them and watch them before I go to bed each night. I think it's quite funny that JS is being accused of this because some of his FOX counterparts have been accused of the same. Maybe his writers came up with it?? Can't wait to see the show tonight...

    Let's face it - this is a Republican smear, no doubt about it. They absolutely hate the fact that the Daily Show shows how idiotic they are on a daily basis (and they show how idiotic a lot of Dems are too). I can't live without my Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert fix which allows me to laugh at the insanity of politics today instead of crying, as I feel the need to do on a regular basis. Thank you Jon - keep up the great work - we women love you!

    The Daily Show doesn't claim to be a "News" program. They are calling out hypocrisy in the Mainstream media as well as political figures. The fact that there is as much news content in The Daily Show as other outlets shows how badly real journalists are failing to do their actual stated jobs.

      Not even close to the truth. Daily show IS mainstream media. Daily show is a political show wrapped around comedy.

Julia Fox, Glory Kohleon and Volkan Sahin) the "official" news programs did not have significantly more news than did The Daily Show.

      Joe: I watch/read a lot of news, all kinds of stations/papers, and Jon Stewart gets it right just about all of the time. And he gets it right without the political party spin that other news stations adhere to. Yes, he's a comedian but he's also extremely smart. You don't get to interview the political powerhouses that he does without having your crap together. If you're not up on current policies then you won't get the Daily Show anyway, so to watch it as your ONLY news source doesn't make any sense. But Stewart calls it as it is, and a lot of people don't like that – doesn't fit into the view of things as they like to see it.

      Glad I could scare a little hell out of you today. I'm off now to hopefully strike fear into the hearts of others.... wish me luck. :o)

Stewart himself, when he took on Tucker Carlson on CNN's "Crossfire" several years ago, referred to TDS as a comedy show. Anyone who considers The Daily Show to be a viable source of news is as deluded as the Fox News watcher who claims that's channel's news coverage is unbiased. IT'S ALL ENTERTAINMENT PEOPLE!!

      I have multiple sources of news because I like to verify the "facts" presented. However I am consistently impressed with how Jon Stewart holds political and media figures accountable, especially when he uses their own video taped quotes against them. And he does this with both Democrats and Republicans. Anyone who thinks he is a Party purist doesn't watch the show. He is a progressive who cares and is not afraid to call anyone out on their BS. I do think he is a valid source of news, but he should not be one's exclusive source of news.

      Malcom, I agree that the daily show is left of center, but it has some important differences from the other news-entertainment programs and networks. The first being that they are open about it. How many times does Jon have to admit to being liberal, or admit to prefering a candidate? But despite that bias, TDS has no mercy on liberals just because of shared ideology. CNN hides their bias well, and FOX appears to be completely unaware of their own bias. TDS seems to be even more angry when politicians they want to like disappoint them. And most importantly, when The Daily Show is making a joke, inventing a story, there's no confusion. This is news, this is commentary, this is an interview, and this is pure humor. On fox those things are all jumbled up and presented with a straight face.

    I currently live and work in Germany (USAF) and The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are the only American television I watch, and I do so religiously (by the way, I am also 41 years old, so I fall outside of O'Reilly's "stoned slacker" demographic. I do not, however, watch O'Reilly or Fox "News"). I use to watch CNN, until it became more entertainment, and less real news, than the two shows mentioned at top. My television doesn't have American channels, so I watch these shows via their websites. I always see them a day late, which gives me a chance to collect and digest the news before I see their take on what can sometimes be complicated subject-matter. As Stewart once described his show, it is a part of a digestive process. Turds of wisdom! Glad to see it seems he also walks the walk we see on his show.

      On the other hand I find CNN to be most hilarious, sometimes they even come across a real story and make it sound very stupid. As an example I heard a "news" anchor ripping Lindsay Lohan for crying in court, while I could honestly care less about the day to day life of Lindsay Lohan I would not consider her to be a NEWS worthy topic. Apparently CNN and it's founder to be peddlers of things that just don't matter. Anderson Cooper 360 makes me dizzy, Rick Sanchez is confusing, and Wolf Blitzer needs a new situation. By the I sold Stephen Colbert "Gatorade" many years ago (before he was famous) and he was very nice, I haven't met Jon but I am sure he smells like a rose or something wonderfully fragrant?

      Tim, why do think CNN is out to get Jon Stewart? If they were, they wouldn't have published this article.

      Meh, Jon's just shining you on until we mobilize our army of militant liberal jew comedians and actors. It's our dream to live in a world where everyone is forced to eat gafilte fish during a Yentil marathon.

      Shalom!

    I just adore Jon Stewart. He seems like an all around great guy, and what his female employees are saying about him, just proves it to be true. Keep up the good work Jon. Your wife's a lucky lady !

      Jon just seems like a fantastic guy...intelligent, witty, respectful, and oh-so-cute! I'm sure he's not a perfect person and makes the occasional inappropriate remark, as we all do. But it's obvious from his interactions on the show that he is very respectful of women and admires their intellect. I can only imagine how challenging a job it is to work there...they put out quality stuff each and every night, not easy. Keep up the good work, Jon (and the ladies and gentleman who make him look good!)

      I would like to appoint an independent investigator to track down the source of the 'RECENT REPORT".
      Could it have been Sarah? I wonder.

      Uber Mench! Jon Stewart has done more to inform, enlighten and entertain our republic than any one else I can think of. His humanity and decency are evident in every show he does. In addition to being the funniest person on T.V., Jon has often shamed the mainstream media into reporting on important stories that they first ignored. Bless you Jon!

      How come nobody seems to notice that news channels only employ women who look like models? Fox News seems to be the worst as they seem to only hire cute blondes. HLN has Robin Meade but she is more than canceled out by the awful Nancy Grace and that frightening lady on Issues.

      Oh, yes, it is just awful that Fox employs cute blondes! Atrocious! Why don't we have more Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg looking pigs that were funny 20 years ago?

    Being smart and thoughtful is often mistaken as "liberal" by most of the ignoramuses in America.

    Jon Stewart dishes it out to both parties equally in my opinion. And his vulgarity only helps to emphasize how truly idiotic the people who run this country can be.

    he's not way too liberal he's waaaaay too smart for you, people who are freaked out by VERBAL profanity are usually masking OTHER types of profanity and besides it's comedy it goes with the territory but the big thing is you are a racist, plain simple and obvious, fortunately we are moving past your type, it's happening a couple more generations and we will
    have breed and educated out you hateful types, how does it feel to be a dinosaur ???
