New York City "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," whose phony news coverage has long included phony "remotes" from war-torn Iraq, will be reporting from Iraq for real next week.
The Comedy Central series will air "Operation Silent Thunder: 'The Daily Show' in Iraq," several onsite dispatches filed by senior war correspondent Rob Riggle.
Scheduled to be back in New York this weekend, Riggle begins his reports as soon as Monday. ("The Daily Show" airs Monday through Thursday at 10 p.m. CDT.)
