Jon Stewart talks about the real ambush from his show's Redskins segment




Remember the whole controversy on "The Daily Show" where some Redskins fans felt "ambushed" by the Native Americans who showed up to discuss the team name? And remember the essay one of the Native Americans, Migizi Pensoneau, wrote for the Indy that blew up on the Internet?

Jon Stewart recently spoke with New York Magazine and addressed the segment, essentially adding support to Pensoneau's take on the matter.

"I’ll tell you where there was a real ­ambush," Stewart told the mag. "When the Native Americans went to the stadium and people said the most vile shit to them. The ugliness that arose was mind-numbing."
