I like how John uses the perversion of the constitution that fox news IS guilty of; to support a "(s)he did it first" argument. The US' two party system has polarized this country to the point of sickness. Most American's are common sense individuals that want to just live their lives and be productive members of society. The media, both left and right, are spinning the "coke/pepsi" paradigm to the point that only the extreme on both sides are willing to argue.

I enjoy the daily show cause its funny. However, the second you allow entertainment to sway your views of the world; is the day you stopped thinking for yourself.


The clip was giggle worthy

I really don't care for JS as a comedian, but as such I also don't hold him to making jokes based on factual representations of the truth. Jokes are just jokes IMO.

As far as Fox News goes, I don't think any other network's hard news programs (and no that doesn't count editorial shows like ALL the networks run) even come close to presenting substantiated facts with as much credibility and fairness as Fox News.

Even the editorial shows they run go above and beyond to bring the cold hard facts forward in which anyone can draw their own conclusions and formulate their own opinions.

Stewert's home company is about the worst when it comes to presenting one side and one side only in a debate, which is very transparent to those who spend hours a day watching and listening to the opinions and analysis of experts from both ends of the spectrum.

Really the main reason there's such hate for Fox coming from the younger demographic is because they are fed this load of shit that Fox isn't credible, when in fact they run the most credible hard news programs of the TV network news shows.

Laura Ingram seems like a big toys in the #2 kinda gal if you ask me lol. It's probably the only time she isn't bitchy.

Credible for any major news station is laughable honestly. Look how dishonest practically all of them were when 'new' info was being 'uncovered' during the Boston bombings. They are all a bunch of BSers looking for the extra views and nothing more. That is what journalism in general has devolved to as well. Exaggeration and the constant 'end of the world' style of the news/journalism is also getting old.

A news station should present the facts like data points, but instead they seem to give their own 'well thought out' :)lol:) opinions on everything. The facts may indeed be being presented, but people are easily swayed and most people have a hard time discerning a fact from someones opinion. Granted that isn't the programs problem, but it IS a problem.

Jon Stewart is a disgusting human being. I'm ashamed to be of the same species as him.

So after watching this video, THAT is what you come away with? I know, i know, Godwin's law and all, but seriously, that's like watching a documentary on Nazi war crimes and saying "The Jew's were disgusting people."

The younger generation is less technologically illiterate, less ignorant, and more likely to use the internet to verify information they receive. That's why they hate Fox news. They can easily verify if what they are being told is fact or fiction, biased or balanced.

The idiot demographic that Fox news captures so well are the type of close-minded, antiquated dullards, that will lap up everything they are fed without question. The same kind of people that blindly cling to bronze age fairy tales, and the same kind of people that think Saddam was responsible for 9/11.

The fact you're defending Fox news, and then turning around and accusing every other network for doing everything Fox is guilty of is so ironic it hurts.

Reminds me of those idiot right-wingers that claim Liberals are actually the racist, bigoted Nazis. Remember...Nazi=National Socialist=Socialism=Liberal

I didn't watch it. I just pointed out that Jon Stewart is a disgusting human being.

So you seem to think that faceless info off the internet is credible, but seasoned reporters like Shep Smith and Brett B. are lying to you?, despite Fox's hard-news shows presenting exactly where every piece of incoming info is coming from, and wheather or not it's been checked or not and who has checked it with what source?


Maybe I'm just living in a dream world man.

You're clearly an idiot, so I won't waste my time arguing with you.

Perfect examples of both sets of the aisle playing into the left right paradigm, and subsequently coming off as immature and un-professional.

Way to make the left and the right proud guys!

"Devolved" nothing. Journalism has a long and sordid history of being full of shit and playing off of the public with sensationalism. The only thing that has changed is modern Journalism is competing for advertising dollars, while the journalism it "devolved" from was competing to sell newspapers.

Seriously, look up "Yellow journalism" sometime. Some of that shit is actually pretty hilarious.

I don't play into a paradigm. I have a grasp of reality, something lacking in many members here.
