Jon Stewart, star of "The Daily Show," has rankled the ire of the Iranian government.

According to The New York Times, "Iran’s state broadcaster recently devoted nearly six minutes to attacking Mr. Stewart for 'directing an ultra-formulaic movie commissioned by his masters' in 'the Zionist lobby' telling 'the story of the American-Israel sedition of 2009.'"

Stewart's movie, "Rosewater," comes from a journalist's memoir about living through Iran’s disputed 2009 presidential election.
