| by Michael Allen

'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart slammed Penn State officials in a segment about the sex abuse scandal and the riots on Wednesday night, which saw Penn State students rioting in the streets (video below).

Stewart compared the scandal to the abuse of children by Catholic priests and reminded the rioting students: “No one is trying to take away your religion, they’re just trying to bring some accountability” to a Pope-like Joe Paterno and “some of his Cardinals."
