There’s fair and there’s fair and Stewart’s show didn’t play fair. I’m all for mocking politicians. Heaven knows they deserve it. But it’s deceptive to skewer them for things they never said. It’s a lie. And Stewart isn’t just a funny-man, he’s a liar (and he has a potty mouth, which is why I’m not replicating his remarks).
What else has he passed off as legitimate skewering when it’s nothing more than creative editing on his part?
If you missed Jon Stewarts exposing the hypocrisy of Fox on the subject of ‘entitlements’ do yourself a favor and see it here. Honestly I just don’t comprehend how anyone with so much as half a brain can believe Fox. I’ve never seen such unbridled hypocrisy outside political circles (which probably explains it- Fox is the soapbox of the far right and never intends to be anything else).
The HuffPo alerts us to the slamming the silly angry atheists take from Jon Stewart over the World Trade Center cross.
Those angry atheists really are feckless whiny jerks.
This must be some kind of joke. NPR? Come on, this has to be Fox News, not NPR…
NPR has reminded its employees that they are not allowed to participate in the upcoming rallies led by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. “NPR journalists may not participate in marches and rallies involving causes or issues that NPR covers, nor should they sign petitions or otherwise lend their name to such causes, or contribute money to them,” Senior Vice President for News, Ellen Weiss, wrote in a memo Wednesday morning. “This restriction applies to the upcoming John [sic] Stewart and Stephen Colbert rallies.” NPR CEO Vivian Schiller forwarded the memo, sent initially to news staff, to the entire organization, telling employees that the note applied to “digital, programming/AIR, legal and communications” employees in addition to the news staff. “However, no matter where you work at NPR you should be very mindful that you represent the organization and its news coverage in the eyes of your friends, neighbors and others,” Schiller continued. “So please think twice about the message you may be sending about our objectivity before you attend a rally or post a bumper sticker or yard sign. We are all NPR.”
I guess personal freedom goes out the window when you sign up with some corporations. Even NPR…
Come on, NPR???? I’m just totally shocked.
After having been fired for saying something really very stupid.
Sanchez called out Comedy Central host Jon Stewart as a “bigot” for mocking him, and complained that Jews — like Stewart — don’t face discrimination. He also suggested that CNN, and perhaps the media industry more broadly, is run by Jews and elitists who look down on Hispanics like himself.
He’s not very smart. Naturally this means he will soon be working for Fox along with the other lunatics.
And I mean skewers it, showing without any question that the new ‘pledge’ is nothing but the same old things that they’ve said for years and years. They’re promising nothing other than no change at all.
Politicians are just pathological liars. They really can’t seem to stop themselves from saying anything they can to be elected and then doing absolutely nothing once they are.
And does it brilliantly for their heavy handedness in the Gizmodo expose of iPhone4. Watch the video. Fantastic.
