If you missed last night's "60 Minutes," you missed Bob Simon's excellent piece on Bassem Youssef, an Egyptian TV star who is described as the "Jon Stewart of Egypt," in large measure because Stewart inspired Youssef's style and TV show, which is a massive hit there.
Naturally, another observation did not go unsaid in the piece - what Youssef does is life-threatening. This is no mere entertainment, but a sharp stick poked at the authorities who tolerate much less on any given day. As a show of support and solidarity, Stewart appeared on Youssef's show over the summer while he was filming "Rosewater" based on the memoir of Maziar Behari, the Canadian Iranian journalist and human rights activist who was imprisoned in Iran.
Stewart appeared on last night's "60 Minutes Overtime" to offer a further assessment of Youssef....Well worth watching:
