On Monday night's "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart addressed the new sanctions leveled on North Korea over the hacking of Sony Pictures and threats of "9/11-style" violence at theaters showing the Seth Rogan comedy "The Interview."

In true Jon Stewart fashion he pointed out the absurdity of it all. The Sony hack was a violation of American's privacy -- similar, "The Daily Show" states, to the actions of the NSA.
