Jon Stewart on Paris Newsroom Attacks: We're All 'Team Civilization'

Published on .

Jon Stewart opened his normally comedic "Daily Show" Wednesday night with somber words of support for the victims in the assault on Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine.

One passage in his introduction stood out:

"However frustrating or outraged the back and forth [here] can become it's still a back and forth, a conversation amongst those on, uh, let's call it 'team civilization.'"

In Europe, some newspapers are re-publishing the Charlie Hebdo cartoons that were central to the assault.
