Arianna Huffington (pictured) was on The Daily Show last week promoting her new how-to book on how to be a successful blogger. The key, Huffington says, is to write about your passion, which in her case is cheese. An incredulous Stewart responds that his passion is eggplant. He obviously has a hard time imagining that the HuffPo would be the leading political blog that it is if its focus where on cheese. More generally, Stewart seems to have a rather low opinion of blogs, at least as the blogging process is described by Huffington. Why, Stewart asks, would people want to read all the dreck that didn't make it onto my show? You can watch the full exchange here.
As a committed blogger, I have to add, LONG LIVE DRECK!!!
