Anyone see John Stewart's tea party show?

http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/mon-september-14-2009/mad-men

He began that segment by showing clips of Sean Hannity and Michelle Malkin criticizing Bush's protesters, calling them "extremists" throwing a "temper tantrum." He juxtaposed these words with their laudatory coverage of the protest this weekend noting, "In Fox's defense you can't really sh*t on a party you've thrown."

Stewart went on to criticize Glenn Beck for his 9/12 project saying it's nothing more than "impotent rage."

Thoughts?

  • i'll have to wait till baby's in bed, but im sure it will be hilarious. i love John Stewart (just finished his book "America", i highly recommend it!) & i love him even more when he points out the stupidity of the media or government.

  • I don't watch his show. I find him to have a twinge of bitter.  When I get some TV time (not often) I either switch around news stations or I watch non-thought-provoking shows that are purely there for thoughtless entertainment.  It all depends on what time it is and what mood I am in.

  • we know hes a comedian...we think he's funny. the sad thing is he makes more sense than most of the "journalists" on the "real" news stations. whats sad is that we realize he does this for money & laughs only...too bad most ppl dont realize their beloved "journalist" is doing the exact same thing for money alone.

    ppl who have no sense of humor are the kind of "ladies" who scare me.
