Comedy Central's Stewart Riffs On Qatar World Cup Stadium Design
Published November 20, 2013
Comedy Central's Jon Stewart noted the FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar in '22, "but in the three years since that location was announced the selection has been hit with criticism after criticism." The broadcast aired news reports about "harsh working conditions," even charges of "slavery," as well as concerns over summer temperatures. Stewart: "But this week the country of Qatar is set to put all of that criticism behind them and unveil its planned World Cup stadiums." An image was shown of the main stadium in Qatar, with Stewart saying it looks like a "giant steel vagina." Stewart: "Well, either that or something Donald Trump puts his hair on at night" ("The Daily Show," Comedy Central, 11/19).
