Upon his visit to Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, film director Roger Ross Williams gained a lot of critical acclaim for his latest film God Loves Uganda. The film was about all of the anti-homosexual laws that were being carried out in Uganda and Williams had felt as if North America had a big influence on why Uganda was they way it is right now. In the film, it showed the raw nature of citizens in Uganda being penalized for their sexuality and sometimes, it would cost them their life.
Roger Ross Williams was invited to be a guest on The Daily Show and explain and describe his thought process while directing this God Loves Uganda. As usual, Stewart welcomes his guest with a warm, respectable welcome. He always speaks highly of the guest and never once does he ever insult his guest. Me personally, I like how Stewart is well informed on what issues his guest brings to the table and he is always ready to ask a good question for the guest. For example, when Williams told him about how he found out that America was behind Uganda making anti-gay laws, Stewart asked him loaded questions like “how did you get involved” and “what were his motives behind making this movie?”
I like The Daily Show and I like Jon Stewart as a host. He knows how to carry out a good show while incorporating humor and intelligence about the news of today.
