...And you know the media loves to breathlessly dish it out.

Stewart: If only someone in law enforcement could have given Eliot Spitzer better advice...

Spitzer in 2006: Never talk when you can nod, and never nod when you can wink. And never write an email -- because its death. You're giving prosecutors all the evidence we need.

Stewart: In Spitzer's defense, he probably forgot he had said that because it's hard to concentrate when you're getting a $2000 bl*w%#b.

If only the media would spend more time investigating the suspicious details of the complaint and less time reporting the salacious -- and entirely inconsequential -- details of the man's private (albeit hypocritical) life.

Can you help us out?
