When President Barack Obama took the stage at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the first thing that struck me was the fact that Mr. Stewart would not be seated before the President.

Is anyone really surprised that the Fox network has stated that it will not air President Obama’s press conference on Wednesday 29th, but will air an episode of Lie To Me instead?
