From The CC Insider…
They say you never want to watch the sausage being made, and that may be true, but after seeing this Rolling Stone interview with Jon Stewart about the creative process behind a typical day at The Daily Show, I think I'd at least like to watch Jon Stewart describe how sausage is made. It would be one of the most candid, funny and interesting discussions about meat processing ever. (Audio NSFW)
For more, be sure to pick up the latest issue of Rolling Stone. It's the one with Jon Stewart on the cover.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.

Hoo, boy. The U.S. Army just can't stop complaining about office politics to Rolling Stone. Of course, their watercooler dramas are way more life-and-death-y than what the rest of us generally face around the world.
Let's see what adorable hijinks they're up to now…
The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned — and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.
Oh, is that all? That's nothing compared to whose turn it is the buy the first round at the next office gathering at Chili's, or who is in charge of getting everybody to pitch in for the next office birthday cake.
You want to see a real office fight? Try hanging around the Indecision office when there's only one piece of Casual Friday pizza left. You will see bloodshed.

On last night's Colbert Report, Stephen spoke with Michael Hastings, the reporter from Rolling Stone who single-handedly took down General Stanley McChrystal. I have to be honest, I haven't read the article, because I get all my music news from Pitchfork. They had an explosive article about a General last week too, but you've never heard of him.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

Rolling Stone magazine has featured the beatific image of Our Lord and Savior 2 times on its cover.
Once in March of 2008, alongside the not at all embarrassingly cloying title "A New Hope," and once again only four months later in July with no title or words whatsoever to compete with his lovely visage, save for the title of the magazine (which his head is mostly obscuring).
Because, really, what can you say?
