Skip to comments.Stewart: So what does a guy have to do to get fired at ABC? (ABC gets zapped by Jon Stewart)
Posted on 07/24/2012 9:38:45 AM PDT by SE Mom
Thats a very good question, and one that so far ABC News hasnt answered. Brian Ross went to air within hours of the Aurora shooting to tell George Stephanopoulos and the Good Morning America audience on Friday morning that Ross had found something significant about the suspect. ... Jon Stewart wonders aloud what someone has to do to get fired at ABC:

Stewart nails it ping..
It’s pretty sad that fake news has more integrity than real news, but its been that way for years now.
Call Zero a Mohammadan and demand to see his REAL birth certificate.
When the liberal media has lost Stewart, it has lost.
When the conservative media loses stewart it is no loss at all.
He sure does.
maybe... if they killed a puppy on live tv....
Sanity on the rise?... we can only hope...
This from the mother ao all cheap shot artist.
particulalry againtst TEA “party”
And how many dozens of ‘journalists’ and politico did the same to Sarah Palin with the Arizona shootings a couple of years ago?
Who got fired or who called for anyone to get fired then?
The most insightful line is the last sentence of his bit where he ties in the “pre-existing narrative” of the Tea Party with low taxes...madmen..you do the math George..
It is a moment of clarity. A surprising moment of clarity.
Not hardly. It would be a news story of how they were so enamored by Obama that they were giving him a delicacy present.
More people than Ross would be fired.
Stephonoplis (sp) ask a lead in question that laid the groundwork for the Ross comment. BOTH of them knew he would say this ahead of time, and that leads me to think it was a coordinated effort by the show’s entire production team—producers, writers, and reporters.
Stewart’s been told by the Party to fire a “humorous” shot across the bow at Brian Ross: “Hey, fella, we get that you’re a true believer, and that’s really sweet, but you’re just too freakin obvious. If you embarass us again, that’s it for you.”
And by the way, this would be a good time for Romney to issue a statement condemning the obvious media bias.
The unfunny Communist Leibowitz has to occasionally chide his true allies in the QueerMedia.
All to give the appearance that his Marxist propagandizing is “balanced” and even-handed.
Now, back to baseless, ignorant attacks on moral, conservative, Christian America.
The events were so horrific and shocking that even Stewart gets that (1) this should not be made into a political football, and (2) falsely accusing someone of being involved could have terrible consequences for the person falsely accused, so you need to double & triple-check that you have it right.
“So what does a guy have to do to get fired at ABC?”
Simply tell the truth about Obama’s policies and actions.
I can’t believe this is the same Jon Stewart!! “can a man get a suspension up in this bitch?!”. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
And he comes off as pro tea party, or pro decency!
Hey, mr. Lieberman, if you began actually being fair and balanced like this, you’d have double the viewers!
And ABC loses any shred of credibility they might have had. Not to apologize for their cruel accusation on air or suspend the schmuck.
When is John Stewart going to be fired for his disgusting anti-Christian bigotry?
Don't watch him, ever. Just read about what he says because he has quite a hold on some feeble-minded college students. Every conservative should stay aware of what this imp has to say, because our young people get their "news" from him.
The left will blame Rush for the Batman movie-shooter, but the media will never tell us that he probably watches Comedy Central instead of talk radio--
Last night Stewarts was also complaining that we should be turning over our Boy Scouts to Sandusky-types as scout leaders...we're homophobes, y'know.
John Stewart was dead on about Fast & Furious as well. He had some stellar material.
And imagining George as a Sandusky type doesn’t take a leap of imagination either. Let’s accuse him on national tv of showering with boys.
What does one have to do to get fired? Become a Republican.
It's thin gruel, but it's more than most of these suckups ever offer.
(a reviewer says) "shows how sites like Gawker, Huffington Post, Drudge, Brietbart, eHow (Demand Media), Daily Kos, Business Insider, and many others have ushered in the return of Yellow Journalism. We now live in an age where the news is manufactured and often based on brazen falsities . . . these sites now drive the news we see in our increasingly bankrupt traditional media (CNN, ABC...)."
The author in an interview said that today's MSM "investigative" journalists sit at their computers looking for stories on their favorite web sites. That is journalism today.. report how your buddies feeeeeeeeeeeel about things.
I am not sure what the reviewer was getting at by including Drudge and Brietbart but I suppose MSM employees do look at those sites too.
Notice Jon DIDN’T condemn trying to associate the Tea Party with terrorists... he even kind of reinforced it, with the “with low taxes...madmen..you do the math” line.
Brian showed his bias and Jon’s doing damage control.
He conceals the real issue (Brian Ross trying to falsely associate the Tea Party with terrorists) by reprimanding Brian for failing to fact check and falsely accusing an innocent guy of mass murder.
People who hear it come away with the idea that Brian Ross was lazy in his reporting, as opposed to the idea that Brian Ross was intentionally trying to demonize the Tea Party.
Yep. When a liberal politician or entertainer (or whatever) gets it right, we ought to give credit where credit is due. Maybe, just maybe, that will encourage them to think more clearly in the future.
Mark Steyn tells an incredible story about Stephanopoulos. It was after the death of Princess Diana.
Stephanopoulos goes up to Prime Minister Tony Blair and says to him, Looks like this is your Oklahoma bombing moment.
Thats how soulless and empty and despicable these people are.
Everything is immediately political. No ounce of empathy to be found anywhere.
I sent an email to OReilly telling him this story, and how disgusted I was in the way he kept defending them.
I still have no love or respect for Jon Stewart. Will say anything for a cheap laugh, but we know what his politics are.
Shaking my smiling head.
I heard that story on the way to work the other day when Mark sub’d for Rush. Not surprising- but shocking.
I’m not suddenly a Stewart fan- but it was a worthy and smart bit- always pleased when there’s a brief moment of intelligence shown on TV.
So what does a guy have to do to get fired at ABC?
Is this a joke?
Any one of a number of things:
Support traditional marriage, support DOMA, disagree with the homosexual agenda or ask that it be removed from our schools, agree with DADT, lower taxes, less regulations, talk about defunding the EPA or restoring the Space Program, ask to enforce immigration laws and close the borders, disagree with Obamacare, agree that the 2nd covers every lawful citizen in America, ask Obama why he granted immunity to the huge fast & furious scandal.
I could go on and on.
Should Liebowitz promise to blow his brains out on live tv I might watch. Anything else - NEVER.
I'll take that...
There are many ways to get fired at ABC. For a start, you honestly report on the facts uncovered by Joe Arpaio about obama releasing a forged birth certificate and speculate about what that might mean, the potential for blackmail, etc. and just follow that trail and see where it takes you and your audience.
The next thing you know...You're outta there!
Register as a republican?
Contribute to the Romney campaign?
Tell a Kennedy joke?
I hope Mr Holmes sues ABC and Ross personally for his defamation.
Pretty bad when Comedy Central thinks your left wing agenda goes too far.....
I usually see Leftists posting Jon Stewart quotes but I doubt they’ll post this one.
Does anyone know Brian Ross’s email address? He should see this. Well, maybe not, he might sue.
That’s so funny.....
The difference between The Daily Show and ABC News is that only one of them admits to being a farce.
This from the biggest of all cheap shot artists (Jon Stewart.
Even Stewart knows that Ross’ mendacity has a negative effect on the left. Stewart is just worried about the MSM’s credibility (as if they had any).
