(But then, of course, Jon goes hunting again, against the other side… but that’s besides the point. Watch Joe Biden, for now.)
Update: Read this post about this same topic. As this post mentions, Franklin D. Roosevelt was in fact President when the markets crashed in 1933. So Joe Biden wasn’t wrong on that one. I find it hard to believe, though, that TV was a major news medium in 1933, when TVs were in fact commercially available “since the late 1930s”.
Oh, and Beretta does make shotguns, too. So Joe wasn’t wrong there either.
What was Jon Stewart thinking?
Update on the Update: President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first President to appear on Television – in 1939. The same PBS webpage says:
… it would be more than a decade before the new medium became popular.
