'Fox edited me to seem like a woman having a nervous breakdown': John Stewart
Daily Mail UK ^ | June 21, 2011

Posted on 06/21/2011 4:27:26 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

Jon Stewart has reacted to his interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News to claim that he was unfairly edited to appear like 'a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown'.

The Daily Show Host appeared on Fox News Sunday with Wallace for a heated debate on political bias in the media.

The two men were caught in passionate clashes of opinion as Stewart claimed that Fox pushed a right-wing agenda.

But speaking on his own Comedy Central show on Monday evening, Stewart said that the show's producers had tampered with the interview. He said that he came across as 'emotional and erratic'.

'I suggest you look at the unedited version online where my emotional states don't seem to change so arbitrarily,' he said.

'The arguments are a little clearer and a little less like a scene from woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

No they didn’t Jon, that was the real you. Comedians should be able to laugh at themselves. That is what makes them able to laugh at others and still be liked.

You fail, Jon.

What I saw of the interview was clearly edited. Whether it was done “fairly” or not, I have no way of knowing.

Gee, isn’t that just so sad. Jon made his career cutting and pasting his targets in their worst appearing moments and now complains someone did that to him. Poor w’ittle Jon. Jon, Jon. There now, Jon.

Stewart is a sexist. I expect NOW to issue a demand for an apology because of his implied denigration of women as especially hysterical.

John, most people watch what they like, and that’s why the Fox audience is a LOT BIGGER than yours.

If they did indeed “edit” Jon Steward to appear to be a hysterical woman( isn't he always like a hysterical woman anyways?), they still wouldn't even come closerto the editors at the cBS and the “job” they did on the Sarah Palin/Katie Couric interview.
Funny how the vermin of the lame stream media are quick to claim victimhod at the slightest attempt to give them a taste of the bitter medicine they have been dishing out to conservative GOP politicians fopr DECADES.
Shut and stop crying already Jon. What a wuss!

Most political/topical/racial comedy is born out of anger, not all of course, but most. Take the comic off the stage, scratch the surface just a bit and the anger and feelings of impotence are right there. It's the Lenny Bruce school, and look how he disintegrated.

A few of them manage to hide the anger during their careers for common sense financial reasons but after a while it shows. Think Cosby - a very angry man in spite of his great success and wealth. Or thinl of virtually any reasonably successful comedienne - Cho, Bernhardt, Poundstone - they are all angry queers.

He could possibly have a point, though I doubt it’s anywhere near as bad has he says .... or as extreme as the routine editing by The Daily Show editors of clips of President Bush, Sarah Palin and its other GOP and conservative targets.

Tell us again, John. How does it feel?

LOL! I watched that interview. Stewart is worried about how his demeanor appears? His content was quite revealing. Wallace did a great job painting Stewart into a corner about the liberal bias of the MSM and Stewart’s show.

Wallace played a clip of Stewart comparing a commercial of Palin’s bus tour to a herpes commercial. After playing a clip of Stewart making fun of Herman Cain’s comments about the length of bills being passed by Congress, Wallace asks Stewart if he’s auditioning for an Amos and Andy role. Cracked me up, because it was spot on.

Wallace owned Stewart. Stewart should be embarrassed about what he said, not whether he came across as ‘a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown’. Stewart is a liberal jerk, who hides behind his comedy schtick to paint conservatives in the most offensive light he can.

So is Mr. Stewart implying that a female suffering from a psychological breakdown is somehow worse or more distressing than the same event experienced by a male?

Stewart is unmasked as a sexist. He see a woman as LESS than what he is and uses the female example as the worst possible and, perhaps, the LEAST in control expression of humanity in a stressful situation. Stewart will try to cover this up with his usual "Hey! I'm a comedian!" bit, but that does not work when he is trying to show that he is serious and NOT joking, like his appearance with Wallace.

Stewart is an unfunny joke.

I think when I was in college we used to have sport with the girlfirends of guys like Stewart. No women want to be a nutless, sniveling little navel gazer like this guy. Ann Coulter exposed Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz in her new book, his whole act is a crafted persona. The wise azz metrosexual hipster who appeals to the millions of other men with penis envy. In fact most of the worlds great tyrannts had serious sexual dysfuntions and deep seated homosexual urges. Jon Stewart’s pathology comes fork his Jewish self hatred. This guy is walking Freudian archetype, I mean he named his kid “Nathan”. Talk about a flaccid, wimpy name to saddle a kid with.

John, Fox hired one of your editors. You may want to sue for theft of your intellectual property. I would love to read the complaint where it details what you think is proprietary about chopping up interviews to denigrate your interviewees.

Let's cut to the real chase.

Fox News, and O'Reilly in particular, have made the sicko Stewart into more of a household name than he is worth.

The Bloviator has had him on his show constantly and consistently for the past year, building him up, lending him "gravitas".......and enabling this creepy guy to command more income these days than a two-bit comedian with a clever mouth could ever hope to rake in.

Last night, O'Reilly said he has Stewart on his show so much because he's a "fair liberal" and an "intelligent" guy.

Intelligent? The statements Stewart is putting out regarding his interview with Wallace are strangely garbled and make little sense at all when carefully parsed. Just words, words, words, devoid of content.....like Obama fools the folks with.

Defending Stewart who regularly delivers anti-capitalist, pro-Marxist, anti-conservative and anti-Tea Party routines on his "comedy" show speaks volumes about O'Reilly's intelligence as well as that of Stewart's who is incredibly blessed with the luxury of having most-favored guest status on BO'Rs high-rated show.

O'Reilly and Stewart are two of a kind with different styles. Stewart delivers his leftist propaganda with anger and sick humor.....while O'Reilly does his populist/statist/pro-Obama propaganda in guest repartee employing a controlling iron fist inside a smiley-leprechaun velvet glove.

Neither of these two show biz entertainers is a credit to the Republic for which we stand.

I would feel angry and impotent as well if I, like Lenny Bruce, was arrested for telling dirty jokes at nightclubs where alcohol drinking adults had paid to hear my dirty jokes, in America where we are supposedly free to express our thoughts any way we want.

‘they arrested me for saying an eleven letter word. They said this word was for a homosexual practice. Now that confused me, because when I think of that word - I don't think of a homosexual practice; I think of any hip contemporary chick I might know, or would WANT to know, or would love, or would marry.’ Lenny Bruce on being arrested in San Francisco for saying “c*cksuckers”.
