Last Night, Jon Stewart “welcomed” Koch Industries as a new sponsor of The Daily Show with a funny segment on the Comedy Central network. Stewart showed “a slick new ad” from the company that had appeared during a program commercial break earlier in the week. Brendan James of Talking Points Memo said, “The TV spot featured images of sunny landscapes and beaming factory workers while praising the multinational corporation.” But…Stewart and his team decided to “tweak” the original Koch ad and provided a newer and better version of the commercial that “mercilessly mocks” the robber baron billionaire brothers.
