You can’t accuse Jon Stewart of not being a team player. Like the rest of his media colleagues, he’s done his part to help Wendy Davis – even having her as a “Daily Show” guest while her spectacularly awful Texas gubernatorial campaign is in its death throes.
On Oct. 27, he offered her sympathy and softballs – really not much different than the love the media favorite has gotten from other outlets. Stewart dutifully brought up Davis’ June 2013 filibuster 2013 to stop “anti-choice legislation” that would close several abortion clinics in Texas. Yet the legislation passed anyway.
