You might want to watch because she's a beautiful blonde, but if you take the time to listen, you'll see what journalism should be.

I actually watched this last night thinking you guys should post it. She's beautiful, smart, and not afraid to attack her employers for being idiots. That just makes her that much hotter.

Beauty, brains, and balls. Wow.

man that last minute in a half was really something, pretty happy...

I'm sorry but her rocking back and forth and sideways was really distracting.
I saw she had great legs walking in, no need to keep showing/hiding them all through the interview. She wasn't facing the interviewer.
She was facing the camera and sitting far enough from the table so her legs would show.

She's smart, she's beautiful. No need to be flirty as well.
You can almost feel John Stewart consciously not reciprocating her flirtiness - trying to make her act more professional and disregarding little innuendos like "falling on my knees" and such...

Dunno.
It actually bugged me.

She was very well spoken if flirty (she's probably happy to be in a building that is unlikely to be blown up today)...in her defense, I've been to a taping of the DS and Jon Stewart has a charisma thing that doesn't come across as much on tv as it does in person...
He also knows he has a wife at home who watches the show and would kick his @$$ for flirting back with her...he's not Letterman or Leno (aka the Dirty Old Men of night time talk shows), and actually aspires to be taken seriously when he does his political interviews...
I had the misfortune of seeing Andy McDowell interviewed when I saw him...but the rest of the show was still brilliant (this was in 2001 when it wasn't a normal stop on the talk show rounds for the serious people)

Leggy, smart, Scarlett Johansson-esque...Journalism needs a sexy spokesperson to make people pay attention.

Now THAT is what journalism should be. It's sad that her breed of dedication to the truth is so rare in the media biz (it's even sadder that it's now considered a business now). In this modern era of flavor-0f-the-month sensationalist reporting, I'm happy to see that there are some people out there that still care about the soldiers behind the stories they tell.
We need to give this woman her own news network, hopefully then the integrity of American news will return.

Wow, she's my new favorite. I'd say she should replace Katie Curic but that would ruin her career. The last place she needs to be is behind a desk. She should be running the news room.

said Baierman on June 20, 2008 11:52 PM.

Armand Asante, you are reading too much into it. You pick up on flirtation signals that aren't there. She's just smart, tough and eloquent. I've platonically fallen in love with her myself.

Anyhoo: if you check the higher res version on TDS website, you can see that in the first moments of the interview she's pretty nervous - note her deep breathing.

You need to listen to it again (don't watch it since you can't handle her looks, [emoticon]) because she speaks truths that need to be heard.

said Lars on June 21, 2008 4:16 AM.

Armand, you are dreaming my man...

I am a soon to be journalism teacher with a little local experience in the field, and I left journalism because of how political and "safe" it was getting at even the local smallish town newspaper.

This journalist gives me hope. If I can I will show this clip to my future students as a measure of what they should aspire to be: tough, articulate, passionate and willing to go after the hard stories. Journalism has become 'entertainment' at many levels, and knowing that there are reporters out there like her is a sign that maybe we, as a culture/country, can come back from the dumbing down and start demanding that 'the news' do its job: Inform us: good, bad and ugly.

Thanks to Jon Stewart, who gets people like Logan out in front of an audience. We need that kick in the pants.

said Moviegirl on June 24, 2008 2:07 AM.

Gee...another dumb blond being built up by the left wing media as being genius...most of her reporting has been proven to be biased and sometimes manipulated.

Another go-go dancer reporting the news....

JOM

I didn't want to reveal the reason I was gone so long, but I was filming the show.

You guys don't know how much the compliments mean to me.
