Pervez Musharaf coming to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

As most of you guys would know that Mushy is coming to States for a UN Session and giving Bush some updates, but he is also going to be launching his autobiography, called "In the Line of Fire". As per Adil Najam, he is also scheduled for an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Tuesday, September 26,2006. This is goning to be a very interesting interview for Mushraf. I hope he knows what he is getting into, cos this is not going to be a regular CNN, NBC, CBS interview. Jon is quite sharp and witty and would not refrain on making any sorts of comments to Musharaf. He has already passed smart comments during his interviews with many leading US politicians and guests. So Musharaf better do his homework before facing Jon Stewart.

Good thing for Musharaf is the Jon Stewart's show has become one of the highest watched political shows and besides winning 2 Emmys this year, its also commands a strong politicaly educated viewership. Almost every political and current affairs writer tries to get on The Daily Show right after launching their books. So atleast Musharaf is doing the right thing and addressing to the right audience for the purpose of spreading the word about his book.

So make sure you guys mark September 26 and watch Jon Stewart's Daily Show at 11:00 PM EST on Comedy Central.

P.S: Musharaf will also be interviewed by CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. For those dates check Adil's blog.

Since Musharraf will be doing this as a promotion for his book, I would think Jon would keep his questions pertinent mostly to the book. I haven't read Musharraf's book yet, so I don't know if he has mentioned any of the current affairs. If he has, and if Jon reads his book before the interview, or already has, which I think he probably will or has already, then Musharraf should be prepared to answer Jon's to Jon's drilling. Jon however, is a fairly polite and respectful person, and I'm sure he understands he will be addressing the President of a nation and so I hope he won't be too controversial or offensive. I'll be sure to watch that episode! Thanks for the heads up.
