That was great!

OMG. that was the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life.

 
Bravo.

That's why it's a tragedy that anyone gets what they think is "news" from Stewart. He didn't mention that Santelli has been against ALL bail-outs, not just the latest, and he mixed "opinion givers" like Cramer (who deserves all the grief he can get) with reporters like Quintenia and others who were simply asking "opinion guys" and CEO questions as you would expect a journalist to do. In fact, making it look like Quintenia KNEW that Sanford was a crook, or even that he'd been charged, was flatly dishonest on Stewart's part.

 
IMHO, he's the political comedy version of Cramer.

I'm sorry, and what do you watch when you come home from work to make life funny again?

CNBC 24/7.

The difference is that he knows he is a news show.. He went on a show with that guy who wears a bowtie and was criticized for "Daily Show version of the news" to which his reply was "I am on comedy central, not CNN"... It is one of the best shows out there.

I disagree. I think Stewart plays a disingenuous game where he tries to score genuine political points (and whether he likes it or not, people accept what he's saying at face value, in which case that CNBC thing was very misleading) by using “comic license” to distort the truth. Then he sits there with that turd-eating grin, doing a end-zone dance as if he just said something true an a authoritative as the dimwits in his audience high-five one another over how he‘s laid-low the powerful.


I think he distorted Sintelli’s position to the point of libel and owes him a real apology. The guy’s opposed ALL bail-outs, he’s not some smug trader that wanted HIS game bailed out and everyone else to go belly-up.

"...that CNBC thing was very misleading"

So we're all in agreement that all the news on the NEWS channels is not misleading?

Anything on FOX news is a joke.

Huh? Major league non sequitur there. Just because Stewart plays a dishonest game on Sintelli doesn't have anything at all to do with whether or not news channels are accurate. Stewart slandered the guy, I guess some people don't have a problem with that.

Stewart made a joke. It was funny. You can't put any stock in it. I mean for goodness sake, his show is on COMEDY Central.

Fine, he made a joke hammering a guy as a hypocrite for holding a position he doesn't even really hold. I'd like to see a bit where someone makes a lengthy joke about Stewart being a child molester. Wouldn't that be a knee slapper...

Well, in the name of good fun (and slander, who doesn't like a good bit of slander after work?), we have the follow up from Stewart the Child Molester himself:

In the spirit of even MORE good fun/slander:

Don't let the huffington sign phase you, they're quoting a TheStreet.com video clip of Cramer.

Good stuff.
