I've been finding the segments The Daily Show's Jason Jones taped a couple of weeks ago in Iran exceptionally enlightening. His visit with an Iranian family last week did more to reveal similarities between everyday Americans and Iranians than any high-level diplomatic effort could have. Using humor, Jones shows how ridiculous stereotypes about Iranian people are.
Last night, we saw Jones's interviews with the leader of Iran's freedom movement, a Newsweek reporter, and former Vice President Ali Abtahi. Coincidentally, all three of those men were subsequently arrested by the authorities. Check it out above.
