Green Room

Here’s why Jon Stewart is a hack

Not only did this FBN guy recognize that the Republicans share the blame, but he then gave an accurate definition of fascism. All of which The Daily Show edited out because it didn’t fit their narrative. If you want to mock this dude’s goofy hair and voice, fine. But what Stewart did was blatantly dishonest, and it’s why I don’t watch his stupid show anymore.

“But he’s just a comedian!” Well, he’s a pundit when he wants people to listen to his political opinions. Then he becomes a comedian when he wants to deflect criticism of that punditry. Clown nose off, clown nose on.

Stop falling for it. Jon Stewart stinks.

P.S. Note that Cody Willard responded to this criticism by placing his comment back in the context Jon Stewart took out, not by trying to remove it from the public debate. Are you paying attention, CNN?

Stewart’s slacker crowd will never see Cody’s response. Fox ya know!

He’s been hiding behind that ‘fake news’ schtick for too long. If he’s fake, or unserious, why do people have to go on his show to defend themselves like Jim Cramer, et al.

I don’t watch that fool except when I see video.

Treacher, what happened to the “Mother may I sleep with Treacher” line? I thought that was pretty unique.

Mr. Stewart is becoming more and more transparent and his demographic will not be fooled for much longer.

Tori Spelling made me take it down.

Stewart’s star is in freefall. The Obama era has shown he only has selected targets, instead of being the nonpartisan he paints himself as. Clown indeed. Clowns are scary.

Its hard to be more of a jackass than Stewart is these days. Talk about a hack job.

I would be interested to see how Stewart/Colbert Stand up to Glenn on the West coast when his show Re-air’s at 11pm. I’m sure Beck doesn’t win but i bet he has cut into their ratings a bit.

Won’t be much left.

Your list of demands is a publicity stunt

“what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives…”

“The jobs are still leaving. Nothing has stopped.”

Why would we possibly want that?
