And you always find yourself back to a moment of 'did I miss something? "I tried to think about it in terms of, you know, I've had friends who have had compulsions and have done things ― gambling or drinking or drugs", Stewart said during an appearance on the "Today" show.

Stewart spoke with Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to promote his upcoming HBO special, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs.

Stewart added that, "You get mad at yourself too for laughing it off, or for thinking, 'That didn't happen'".

"I think it's gotten better over the years", Stewart said, "but certainly when we started 30 years ago, it was really hard, and so to do it was an act of bravery in and of itself".

"All I can tell you is I've worked with Louis for 30 years, he's a wonderful person, and I've never heard anything about this", he added.

Does The Data Supplment Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE:CPE) Movement?
Jeffrey Altman increased its stake in Cit Group Inc (CIT) by 22.23% based on its latest 2017Q2 regulatory filing with the SEC. The fund owned 1,052,573 shares of the oil and natural gas company's stock after selling 262,727 shares during the quarter.

"Look, comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women", Stewart admitted. The former host of The Daily Show said that back when comedians like himself, as well as C.K. and Maron, started out thirty years ago, a woman trying to make it in comedy was itself "an act of bravery".

Stewart said that following the podcast taping, he "dug around" to determine if there was any truth behind the audience member's question.

The worldwide distributors are following the lead of The Orchard, which announced it was canceling the film's USA release on Friday, one day after C.K. admitted his accusers were telling the truth.

"I didn't see the tweets", he went on.

Nor was anyone else with access to the Internet or the New York Times or the Daily Beast or social media or what one might describe as "news".

He also proposed resuming high-level economic dialogue to discuss detailed measures to fix the countries' ties, as well as their trade and economic relations.

The comedy world is not my world, and I was not "stunned' by this news".

And he realizes that saying C.K. had always been a gentleman to him may not have been the best response, saying that "again I think speaks to the blindness that a man has, which is like, hey he's a good guy, what are you talking about". Stewart said as the crowd laughed, later claiming, "I don't know what you're talking about but I can't really answer".

Stewart said that he hasn't talked to Louis C.K. since the news broke.

Stewart reiterated what he said at the time, which is that he "hadn't heard, at that point, of any of it".

"I can't say to you, oh yeah, everybody you like is a scumbag".
