- A cult figure among the under-35 set, [Gideon] Yago's nerdy-cute looks and braniac manner remind me of The O.C.'s Adam Brody. . . .[J]ust as Stewart (an MTV alum) smuggles pointed political analysis inside snarky jokes, Yago's geek chic could make civic duty look cool. . . He says his own taste runs more toward cultural critics like Baffler editor Thomas Frank, and claims that The Baffler's 1997 book Commodify Your Dissent "was a big reason I went to work at MTV in the first place."
