Jon Stewart (Daily Show) on Wisconsin Recall Media Coverage
RCP ^

Posted on 06/08/2012 9:50:15 AM PDT by Retired Greyhound

I find Jon Stewart insufferable and unfunny. But he does get this one right. Here is his funny and accurate take on the media's coverage of the WI recall.

Clip 1: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker survives a recall election, and the news networks embrace custom as extensions of the winning and losing campaigns. (04:34)

Clip 2: Samantha Bee reports that normally mild-mannered Wisconsinites, incensed by the failed effort to recall Governor Scott Walker, are showing symptoms of douche fever. (03:06)

Stewart is good when he actually is even handed, as in these pieces. The problem is they often overlook some easy targets on the left.

I really didn’t think Jon was that funny, it was the material that was hilarious - Lawrence O’Donnell saying the winner was Obama, that was a real knee slapper.

Did you see the video in 2000 where Jon Stewart implied that Pat Buchanan is a Nazi? Here is the link-
