Lehman, Merrill, and AIG, Oh My! Jon Covers the Financial Crisis | TDS Time Machine
The Daily Show jumps in our time machine to head back to this day in 2008: Lehman Brothers has just collapsed, sending the market into a death spiral and sinking the financial crisis to a new low. Jon Stewart catches us up on this latest economic nightmare, discussing the ever-changing situation with Aasif Mandvi before checking in on the latest presidential campaign-trail spin from Senators Barack Obama, John McCain, Joe Biden, and Governor Sarah Palin. Plus, Jon and Ricky Gervais get into some obscure (and questionable) animal facts.
