‘Daily Show’: Stephanopolous Sweet-Talks ‘Adorable’ McCain

Hey everyone, John McCain has his own controversial preacher on his team!  And look, he’s not wearing a flag pin on his lapel either!  These points weren’t driven home by media types like George Stephanopolous, whom Jon Stewart accuses of taking a ride on the “Sweet Talk Express” instead of giving McCain a proper grilling.

Rev. Wright

Rev. Wright Speaks

Lesser journalists continue to characterize the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s sermons as hate speech, without ever having heard more than snippets of them. As Wright tells the great Bill Moyers, the meaning of his sermons has been deliberately distorted to achieve a political goal, and it worked. Updated.

‘Daily Show’: Pundits Perturbed by Pennsylvania Primary

There’s a seasonal sport going on in the media: the age-old tradition of primary prediction. Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary gave a whole host of TV hosts and pundits another shot at handicapping yet another big race between dueling Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama—but alas, as the contest concluded, heady excitement gave way to darker sentiments.

Chuck Todd

MSNBC ‘Calls’ the Race for Obama

NBC political director Chuck Todd, basking in hypotheticals, repeatedly explains that, while it simply isn’t done, “if we called things like this ... you would say, ‘OK, the pledged delegate count is over.’ ” Guess which of the candidates featured this video on his YouTube channel?

Stewart and Obama

Obama Goes for Laughs on ‘The Daily Show’

Poking fun at recent controversy, Jon Stewart asked Barack Obama Monday if, once elected, he plans to “pull a bait and switch ... and enslave the white race.” The candidate responded with a chuckle and a dig at ABC News.

Bush on TV

Um ... No Deal?

Here’s a scenario George W. Bush surely didn’t foresee as he assumed the country’s highest office years ago: One day he’d be sharing prime-time screen time with Howie Mandel’s soul patch, a phalanx of prancy models and a decorated war veteran, joking about hosting “a $3 trillion ‘Deal or No Deal.’ ”

Clinton Talks Bin Laden, Scaife on Olbermann

Sen. Hillary Clinton paid a (virtual) visit Monday to Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown,” where she offered explanations for why she used an image of Osama bin Laden in her new campaign ad and why she accepted the support of Richard Mellon Scaife, the Pittsburgh-based media mogul who was once considered a key figure in the “vast right-wing conspiracy” against the Clintons during Bill’s tenure in office.

Ron Paul Won’t Go Away

John McCain may have the Republican nomination wrapped up, but that isn’t stopping Ron Paul from campaigning in Pennsylvania, where he is attacking McCain as insufficiently conservative. It’s an odd posture for a candidate who won much support for his anti-war position, a topic that Paul omits here.
