In grand Daily Show style, John Stewart unearths a few clever drive-by conclusions about Steve Jobs in his visit with biographer Walter Isaacson on Tuesday night.
"A really interesting thing in the book is how often Steve Jobs crys," said John Stewart. "He is a weeper! Because in the book you get the sense at times from some of the people that the crying was also a manipulation."
Isaacson talked about how Steve Jobs connected emotion to technology and quickly defended the moments where Apple's co-founder would begin crying during his interview sessions, calling them "moments of artistic purity" rather than manipulative.
The big payoff comes when Isaacson casually compares the accomplishments of Bill Gates with that of Steve Jobs. I won't spoil the classic ending to this compelling 7:00 minutes of quality television.
