Ever since we first heard that The Daily Show was sending Jason Jones to Iran to cover the election there, we've been anxious to see if they'd be able to find comedy in what was happening there. They did.
In what Jon Stewart billed as the first in a series of reports from Iran, all filmed prior to the election, that they think will "present an interesting snapshot of a nation unaware of what awaits it," Jones took to the streets to ask ordinary Iranians about their hatred for Americans. Then he visited the home of an Iranian family in search of answers to the same questions, gifting the children with cartons of cigarettes, and they loved him anyway.
