Daily Show Correspondent Skewers The Media At Awards Dinner

The Daily Show’s “Senior Muslim Correspondent” Aasif Mandvi was the speaker at this year’s Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner.

The Daily Show’s “Senior Muslim Correspondent,” Aasif Mandvi was the speaker at this year’s Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner. I think it’s fair to say he didn’t hold back from biting the hands that fed him.

It wasn’t nearly as devastating as Stephen Colbert’s epic takedown of President George W. Bush and the Washington press corps lapdogs at the 2006 speech White House Correspondents Association dinner. But Mandvi got in a few good shots at Fox News, among other media outlets. Plus, though he acknowledged that the RTCA is the “junior varsity” to the WHCA, he noted that President Obama called ISIS the junior varsity of Al Qaeda. “And look how well they’re doing now!”

Watch it via the link above, from the March 25 Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner. Underneath, and as epic as ever, is Colbert’s “tribute” to Bush and the press.
