Stewart gave the commencement address at the College of William and Mary on May 21, 2004.
- STEWART: See, the thing is, we need your help. Right now, you're helping the politicians and the corporations. And we're left out there to mow our lawns.
- BEGALA: By beating up on them? You just said we're too rough on them when they make mistakes.
- STEWART: No, no, no, you're not too rough on them. You're part of their strategies. You are partisan, what do you call it, hacks.
Anecdotally : "More people (4 million) tune in to The Daily Show in a given week than watched Fox news at the height of the war (3.3 million)."
