Jon Stewart Says He's the "Worst Journalist in the World" for Letting Paula Broadwell/David Petraeus Slip Through His Fingers

Jon Stewart and his news team tackled the David Petraeus/Paula Broadwell scandal on The Daily Show last night, touching on the fact that Broadwell was a Daily Show guest earlier this year. Stewart rips into himself for not picking up on the affair after listening to Broadwell praise the General nonstop for seven minutes, but at least he came closer to the story than most of those serious, non-Comedy Central journalists, which is pretty impressive in and of itself. Check out Stewart's original interview with Paula Broadwell, which is goin' viral, after the jump:

    Should I feel bad that I thought a silver lining in this whole terrible affair story was that there was a chance that the Daily Show could bring back their awesome Dave Petraeus themed version of Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus "?
