Jon Stewart Unloads On Jerry Sandusky


Costas pressed Sandusky on his actions at Penn State, asking point-blank if he is sexually attracted to young boys. Sandusky stalled, and repeated the question. Then asked about an incident in the shower, where he is accused of raping a young boy, Sandusky said they were just "horsing" around.

That's when Stewart really went off.
