Reporting from D.C. last night, Jon Stewart and his news team talked about the controversy surrounding Juan Williams' firing from NPR over his comments about Muslims. Samantha Bee explained that the comments were "direct violations of NPRs 'never say anything interesting' policy."

And John Oliver reported from NPR headquarters, where he said people weren't really talking about the firing, but a "folksy Minnesota man did sing to me for 20 minutes about canned beans. So that was a lot of fun."

Stewart meanwhile compared the reactions by Fox News and NPR to the firings, specifically when one commentator on Fox asked: "Is NPR an agent somehow of a Jihadist inquisition?" Stewart replied: "Wait wait...Don't tell me!"

He then addressed NPR: "You're picking a fight with Fox News? They gave Juan Williams a $2 million contract just for you firing him. NPR -- you just brought a tote bag full of David Sedaris books to a knife fight."
