Jon Stewart
From Comedy Central

“The Daily Show” host spanks most cable news outlets for focusing on anything except the substance of Bill Clinton’s Fox News interview.

Watch it

  • For example: MSNBC focuses in on the fact that Clinton’s sock was showing during the interview.

    Jon Stewart is an utter hypocrite lowlife liberal.

    His attack on Chavez and the entire left was uncalled for.  Liberals are scummy .

    Melvin, the difference between what a cable news show should be doing…..and what Comedy Central should be doing have already been made clear.

    Oh, please Melvin. The reason you barely hear Ahmadenijad speaking on anything else is that he barely says anything else to the world media. The reason for that, how ever is not just to be heard. it is to keep the world media occupied on these inflammatory remarks so they don’t bother themselves, or at least bother themselves less, with the iranian atomic problem. just like the kidnapping of the two israeli soldiers by hizbollah in northern israel came a day after european/iranian talks of the same problem collapsed, and the headlines were allreay drawn for the next day. there is a reason why the bigger caption of the “World Without Zionism” confrence a while back was in english, and not in Farsi(it did have a much smaller line in farsi underneath the english writing). the iranians are deliberately turning the world media attention to other things. i just hope the world media gets its attention back on iran before the mushroom cloud appears….

    Aw the hypocrisy, Jon blames the cable news networks for doing what he himself did with Chavez at the UN last week.
    I’d doubt anyone actually knows what Chavez said besides the devil comment, or what Ahmadinejad said. If Ahmedinejad doesn’t say something about Palestinian rights (his referendum which would wipe Israel off the map because Jews would become a minority) or the holocaust it just doesn’t become ews, because then they don’t have a statement they can use to ignore the other usefull and informational things they say.
