Below is a segment of Jason Jones, of the Daily Show, doing his final report from Russia. It’s hard to explain what it’s about exactly – it’s about a lot of different things, mostly looking at various dissidents, from Pussy Riot to a blogger the government keeps harassing.
Jon Stewart did have a funny opening line, talking about the closing ceremony for the Olympics, where they showed oversized photos of a number of famous Russian writers and artists:
“Of course, their ode to all their really great writers and artists they had shot, imprisoned or exiled.”
