Despite pretty unambiguous video to the contrary, Jon Stewart is lashing out at media reports that he called J.K. Rowling anti-Semitic. In a new video posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday, Stewart denied hurling the accusation at the author and the Harry Potter series as he attempted to blame Newsweek and the media for being “arsonists” who took a light-hearted conversation and twisted it for headlines, or whatever. Just a real profile in courage all around. (Variety)
