Rachel Maddow talked to Jon Stewart about his Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear and the perceptions that many had about what he was trying to achieve during the rally. Stewart discussed the role of the media in playing up the partisan divide in America and rather than tackling issues of corruption. They discussed the differences between what Fox and MSNBC are doing and the role that the 24/7 news cycle has had on our media.

The entire unedited interview will be posted on Rachel Maddow's blog at http://maddowblog.msnbc.msn.com/ tomorrow morning and I'll have more of the interview posted tonight.
