Jon Stewart has been making the media rounds to promote his new book (with The Daily Show), The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Book) : A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction. He was on Leno last night, showing that the Television Academy even enough to give him two Emmys for some extra publicity. But the best book-push related feature we've seen is his 10 Questions with Times magazine:

WRITING A BOOK IS SO RETRO. SHOULDN'T YOU BE BLOGGING OR SOMETHING?
I can't. It's too hip. Then I'd have to get a BlackBerry, and I'm wired in, and next thing you know, I'm at a Black-Eyed Peas concert with a crack problem. I just can't go down that road.

It is so true about being at a Black-Eyed Peas concert with a crack problem. And it's great that Time realizes that blogging is unretro, especially since it only discovered blogs this past summer.

Jon will be at the Columbus Circle/Time Warner Center Border tomorrow at 8PM to read from and sign copies of the book. He'll most likely bring the funny.
