Mo Rocca–Pundit-satirist-writer

Pundit-satirist-writer Mo Rocca–the former correspondent on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” now a frequent commentator on “The Today Show,” MSNBC’s “Countdown” and other TV programs–touches on a few facets of his career path, but mostly discusses his first book, “All The Presidents’ Pets,” a wonderfully absurd, often laugh-out-loud-funny blast of satirical investigative journalism that examines the real story behind the role played by animals in the White House and is studded with characters ranging from Helen Thomas (about whom there’s quite a revelation), to Mr. Peabody (yes, of “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” cartoon fame) to Mo Rocca himself.  []
