Jon Stewart has been ripping on both sides, he just made fun of Obama for not wanting to tip any hands about weatherization being one of his job creators at a private meeting... It then went on to show him announcing it about 5 times on the campaign trail etc. :D

Watch after the 120% clip though, it gets better.

My country is not equipped to view your videos successfully. Perhaps some day in the near future we will have the technologies necessary to interdigitate with your quantums.

I'm sure that you can find it on the Comedy Channel's website.


I thought it was even better a little later in that clip how Stewart was pointing out how ridiculous (and how much of a giant sell-out) Gretchen Carlson is. She acts like a person with little-to-no-education on the show, meanwhile she can play classical violin, was Miss America, and went to Stanford and Oxford.

Woah..... I just went on her wikipedia site, and it says that Michelle Bachman was her childhood nanny! That's nutty.

Her pretending to not know what "Double Dip Recession" or "Ignoramus" meant was just icing on the cake. Not to mention the comment about Tsars! :D

Dumbing herself down? Nah, not at all! :rolleyes:

OBJECTIVE reality
Shows you what Fox thinks is the intellectual level of its viewers, I guess.

One thing, though. If Carlson is gonna play the dumb blonde role, we're gonna need to see more cleavage.

(I googled it. Cleavage is:

1. Informal the separation between a woman's breasts, esp as revealed by a low-cut dress)​

It's videos like that, where this woman is making an idiot out of herself (apparently on purpose!!), that remind me of a horrific irony:

Paddy Cheyefsky wrote Network a generation ago, as a farce.

Think about that for a second and let it sink in.

Have your cringe call my cringe, we'll do lunch.

Oh, I have. It should be required viewing these days.

The saddest thing is what a pleasant fantasy it has turned out to be to think that an insane news commentator being exploited by his employer for ratings would ever apologize to his audience for having run out of bull****.

Which brings me to this point:

Don't a lot of fundie "Christians" watch Faux News? And isn't lying a sin? If lying is a sin, why do they watch it?
Everyone watches fox news, thats why it gets high ratings. :D Also I don't think most watching are going to notice they are being lied to so if it was a sin they don't really know about it.

All the networks lie, so might as well watch hot chicks do it. Would you rather watch Wolf Blitzer lie to you.

I have to admit I have never seen the segment of fox with that lady on it, it almost makes me want to watch now to see how dumb she can act.

Then again she could be one of those book smart people with no common sense.. I had one friend who scored nearly perfect on the ACT back in HS and I swear you could shoot a marble through one ear and out the other sometimes.

Well, not everyone watches it (I don't, and I'm a part of everyone), but yeah, a very high number of people clearly do watch.

Exactly. I actually agree with something you've posted....:p

BS- other networks make corrections when they make mistakes. Faux News doesn't care. Stop trying to use this to get them off the hook.

And I don't care about hot chicks. If I'm watching the news, I just want information. And seriously, you think those women on Fox are hot? HONESTLY? That scares me. You straight guys will settle for anything. ;)

You don't watch cable news to get information, you watch it to get entertained. If you want information read the paper.
