The Daily Show’s female staffers—about 40 percent of the staff—issued an open letter Wednesday disputing claims by the blog Jezebel that the show had a “woman problem” and is a boys’ club in which women have a hard time succeeding. The female employees of the show started the letter as “Dear People Who Don’t Work Here,” and wrapped up by using one of Stewart’s signature send-offs: “Go F--- Yourself.” In particular, Jezebel took aim at the dearth of female correspondents—former Playboy model Olivia Munn is one, as well as show veteran Samantha Bee—and writers, although the letter said the show had plenty of female staffers in other positions. The winner of the debate? Viewers might have to tune in to see if Jon Stewart himself addresses it tonight.
