In his previous video, Steven Crowder blew the lid off of his rejection from Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart by publishing an e-mail from the show’s producer that explicitly stated that they don’t hire conservative pundits, even if they do invite conservatives on as guests. That resulted in Steven’s manager dumping him, as that e-mail was not intended for Steven. Steven doesn’t blame his manager for the response, nor does he quibble with the Daily Show’s right to hire whom they like. What he does object to is the notion that the Daily Show is moderate, non-partisan, and/or independent.
In this video, Crowder plays some exclusive audio from Ben Shapiro’s interview with MTV Networks Doug Herzog about Stewart’s independence, part of his new book, Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV:
I don’t think there is anything wrong with opiners wearing their hearts on their sleeves, either. That’s more honest than, say, holding rallies to “restore sanity” on the basis of moderation while refusing to employ people from one particular political viewpoint. And it’s certainly more honest than making political viewpoint an explicit litmus test when talking with an agent and then getting upset when it comes to light later.
