Just heard word that next week — while the world watches in horror as the Olympic Games unfurl — The Daily Show's Senior Foreign Correspondent Rob Riggle will be behind the Bamboo Curtain in China (not in front of a green screen projection of China) reporting on the country's growing position as the superpower that will destroy us all.
From a press release that some guy chick wrote or something…
"Rob Riggle: Chasing the Dragon" features Riggle reporting in and around Beijing including Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall of China and also interviewing some of China's leaders in media and business.
This marks the second time that field producer Glenn Clements has teamed up with Riggle to produce international nightly reports for the show. In August 2007, they travelled to Iraq for "Operation Silent Thunder."
This should be the most exciting piece of journalistic television since Geraldo Rivera found the Lindbergh baby inside Al Capone's vault.
