Jon Stewart Dumps Load on Magazines


Asked to host a Magazine Publisher's Association event last week last Advertising Week, comedian Jon Stewart crapped all over the magazine industry telling the audience magazines aren't as relevant as television and that the medium sits at the children's table. Reportedly, one could see Graydon Carter's head swell with rage. Asking the question we all want to know, Stewart asked Men's Health magazine editor Dave Zinczenko, "Why is your magazine so gay?" Yes, why?

Why the hell would you ask John Stewart to talk at a magazine event in the first place? That's like asking Cardinal O'Conner to talk in front of a Mormon crowd. PR and event planners always think a name is the game at these things but never care whether the speaker is a square peg and their event is a round hole.
