'On Wednesday night’s The Daily Show, Trevor Noah interviewed Tomi Lahren, a conservative commentator for The Blaze whose videos receive millions of views on Facebook.In today’s political environment, the conversation was critical. Noah’s openly stated goal by hosting Lahren was to break down the media “bubbles” that the 2016 election has revealed. To do so, he largely avoids any attempt to get her to oblige his disagreements, even as the audience reacts in horror to some of what she says. In doing so, he nimbly elicits remarks from her that are unsupportable, hypocritical, or outright offensive, but allows those remarks to speak for themselves.What’s compelling about Noah’s interview is the way he finds opportunities to respond with his own points but does not get mired in a back-and-forth.'
