Tonight, swimmer & environmentalist Lewis Gordon Pugh.
Jon begins tonight reporting on an old Daily Show favorite, Senator Ted Stevens in a segment called "Buy-Cameral Legislature". The FBI & IRS raided Senator Stevens Alaskan home due to allegations that he took oil company bribes in return for lucrative state contracts. As Jon reports, Stevens is being investigated due to his relationship with Bill Allen, an oil company contractor who was convicted this year of bribing state lawmakers. Stevens' home renovation more than doubled the size of his home & was overseen by Allen who's company has made millions in federal contracts. Senior Legislative Correspondent Jason Jones discusses some recent stories of political corruption.
Jon then reports on the media's focus on the amount of cleavage shown and clothing worn by the presidential candidates in a segment called "Indecision '08". Resident Expert John Hodgman talks to Jon about how this focus on style over substance has reared it's face in the history of presidential politics via television and radio.
Finally, Aasif Mandvi reports on the effect the recent intercontinental Live Earth concert has had on our country and culture. As we see from Aasif's report, raising awareness for global warming through crass consumerism is worth it, especially for Bon Jovi fans.
