Daily show to broadcast reports from Iraq (Chad)

NEW YORK -

"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," whose phony news coverage has long included phony "remotes" from war-torn Iraq, will be reporting from Iraq for real next week.

Giving its green screen a temporary rest, the Comedy Central series will air "Operation Silent Thunder: `The Daily Show' in Iraq," several onsite dispatches filed by Senior War Correspondent Rob Riggle.

I mentioned this in the comments of some other entry last night, but given that 21% of Americans get their news from the Daily Show and that Jon Stewart has been virulenty anti-war this could be a surge killer if Stewart spins it negatively.
