Yesterday, Jon Stewart dedicated the first third of the Daily Show to coverage of the backlash against Lowe’s (LOW) after their decision to pull advertising from TLC’s (DISCA) American Muslim. The home improvement chain made its decision after a conservative group complained that the show hid Islam’s extremist agenda. Lowe’s claims the choice was not political, but they have met with accusations of kowtowing to bigots.

In the second part of his coverage, Stewart interviews correspondent Aasif Mandvi who takes a slightly different approach. Instead of calling for a boycott over the ad pull, Mandvi calls for a complete shutdown of Lowe’s. Apparently, terrorists could be getting materials there.
