Thanks. I've never seen that show that show so I'll assume the guy Stewart was personally attacking was the conservative. Stewart really didn't have much to say. He repeated himself a lot and accused them of hackery and "spin alley" which is laughable considering the left wing spin The Daily Show puts out everday. But, that's just comedy. They're not trying to influence anyone right? Stewart is just another anti-Republican zealot. I have never voted for a Republican president, but I can't get into the zealous hate they have. <br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>looks like he did quite well on crossfire. <p><hr></blockquote><p>Stewart replied, "You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show."<br>Wow such witty retort. He showed him. <br><br>
i think one of stewart's points is that trying to compare the daily show to CNN anything is exactly what's wrong with the media. TDS strives to generate laughs and they use politics to do it (and yes, they appear to slant to the left with their humor). CNN is trying to present the news. it's a disingenuous comparison.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
FYI, besides Tucker Carlson, that was Paul Begala who is a Kerry advisor and as liberal as they come.<br><br>How often do you see a sincere, naked plea for decency and truth? I have a whole lot of respect for him. He could have cracked jokes. He could have plugged his book. He bagged all that to ask them to respect us with some honest journalism.<br><br>
Like I said I've never watched their show so I don't know how bad they are, but it's still TV which a) is a cool medium and b) has to be entertaining even on a CNN show. And Stewart should know that. If he doesn't want them to criticize his interviewing skills, which is all I heard him do, because his show is just a comedy show than who is he to criticize them?<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>that was Paul Begala who is a Kerry advisor and as liberal as they come.<p><hr></blockquote><p> <br><br>Than he is a dick. Just kidding.<br><br><br>
Thanks for the file. On video Stewart was taking both guys to task but Carlson seemed to take it much more personally, getting shriller and shriller. If he thinks Stewart's interviews are mere fluff and nothing of consequence ever gets discussed, then he hasn't been watching very carefully. There's a reason The Daily Show's audience is more intelligent and up on current events than Bill O'Reilly's (and I suspect Crossfire's). He can dismiss TDS and Stewart as just comedy all he wants but the reality goes much deeper than that. <br><br>
Michael, both Begala and Carlson are political hacks and dicks, and Jon Stewart showed some guts (and passion) to tell it to their faces. F*ck the media spin from both sides, f*ck the bias. For you and Matt and Bryan who really take issue with the liberal media, I thought you would have seen Stewart's smackdown to be welcomed and exactly what you've been asking for. Oh well, <br><br><br>
And if Carlson would have just shut his trap and let Begala get a word in, it wouldn't have appeared to be a lopsided indictment. If anyone sees this as a liberal attacking a conservative, then it's because Carlson made it appear that way. <br><br>
