Jon Stewart opened the show with a discussion about raising the debt ceiling, and the resulting debate between the democratic and republican parties. Stewart also made time to mock John Boehner’s recent address attacking President Obama’s economic policies.

The guest for the night, Juan Williams, was present to speak on his new book, Muzzled: The Assault of Honest Debate. The focus of the interview was Williams recently being accused of bigotry, after commenting on racial profiling of people openly associating with Islam.
