Jon Stewart addressed the Charleston shooting on The Daily Show. He mentions the contrast between how the US views foreign threats vs. that of domestic ones.
Just watch the video…
Jon Stewart gets serious discussing the Eric Garner case after a grand jury declined to indict the officer who placed Eric in a chokehold and killed him.
Bill O’Reilly gets taken to school on the subject of ‘White Privilege’ in America by Jon Stewart.
Fox News was the place to be on election night. From Karl Rove’s refusal to believe the network’s own projection that Mitt Romney had lost Ohio, to Bill O’Reilly’s assertion that the “white establishment is now the minority,” to Sarah Palin’s enormous new Joan Collins hairdo, there was a panicked and slightly unhinged quality to the evening’s proceedings.
Not surprisingly, Jon Stewart had a field day with the material on Wednesday’s “Daily Show.” He was especially delighted by the fact that it was left to co-anchor Megyn Kelly to force Rove to face the music, via a long walk through the bowels of the Fox News offices and a meeting with their in-house nerds.
Jon Stewart won the debate against Bill O’Reilly about his objections towards rapper Common’s visit to the White House, being that he wrote a song about a woman who killed a NJ state trooper. Stewart tells O’Reilly that even Bono wrote a song about Leonard Peltier, convicted of killing two FBI agents.
Jon Stewart shut Bill O’Reilly up on his on show! Luckily, Fox News didn’t edit the footage to make Jon look bad!
On tonight’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart took an artistic approach to dealing with Fox News’ substantial coverage of the controversy surrounding the White House’s inclusion of rapper and actor, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. better known as Common, in a poetry event hosted by the 1st lady, Michelle Obama.
Stewart kicked things off by noting that Common is the cuddly, mainstream sort of rapper you might find in a Gap ad or hanging out with Elmo. Even FoxNews.com loves the guy! Stewart WENT IN on Fox News hosts like Sean Hannity for focusing on one particular verse within Common’s body of work which references a cop killings and burning a “Bush.”
Stewart pointed to the hypocrisy of Fox News for going after Common, but not going after artists like Johnny Cash, who was honored by President George W. Bush and who also has penned a violent lyric or two in his day. Nor did Hannity go after Ted Nugent, who has made violent remarks about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Hannity considered Ted Nugent a “friend.”
When it was all said and done — Common still performed at the White House — thanks Fox News for wasting our time once again. 🙂
