Video: Garry Kasparov Interviewed by Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert

Everyone would agree that Garry Kasparov receives rather kind treatment from the U.S. press – be it for his previous fame as a chess champion, his sense of humor, or even for his integrity in defense of democratic principles. Those are difficult qualities to argue with (despite the hostile reception he receives from many in the blogosphere). That makes it all the more interesting to see him handle some tough interviews – Bill Maher, for example, asks some of the more difficult questions I’ve ever seen put to Kasparov by the Western media, while Stephen Colbert, well, is Stephen Colbert.
