    There is a new trend in American celebrity culture: More and more actors and comedians, made famous and rich from the attention and dollars of the public at large, are using their positions not only to shame their audience but also to bully them. On the red carpet of the Critics' Choice Awards, actress and comedian Amy Schumer posed for a selfie with a young YouTube critic who then used the opportunity to make a joke of his own on Twitter. "Spent the night with @amyschumer" the now-deleted tweet stated. "Probably not the first guy to write that #CriticsChoiceAwards."

    In what may be the worst series of attacks by the liberal media on Ted Cruz, Monday's Nightly Show on Comedy Central featured host Larry Wilmore declaring that the "creepy" Cruz may be mentally disturbed with guest Aida Rodriguez firmly asserting that, if elected, Cruz's agenda would be to "do everything the KKK does." During the panel segment, Rodriguez began building to her obscene comparison by first attacking Cruz's Christian faith by trying to joke that Christians who believe in the Second Amendment must also believe that people can shoot one another to death and merely "ask for forgiveness, and...

    "We've only had a Whole Foods for a month and already we don't need cops." The town of South Park has come a long way since it was granted a Whole Foods, becoming much more PC. And in Wednesday's new episode, "Naughty Ninjas," the show will do away with "racist, trigger-happy" cops roaming the town. "The ever more PC citizens of South Park decide that they no longer need a police force," according to Comedy Central. "As the first American town to get rid of their cops, they plan to celebrate their advanced sensibilities with a PC Carnival." Season 19...

    During the July 21 airing of Comedy Centrals The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart told President Barack Obama he needs to act quickly if hes going to take away Americans guns and declare martial law. Obama walked out to sit beside Stewart amid rousing rounds of applause. The two exchanged niceties amid laughter, with Stewart pointing out Obama has about a year left in office and Obama responded by saying he is going to issue an executive order forbidding Stewart from leaving The Daily Show. (Stewart previously announced he is leaving the show in August.) According to Deadline, Stewart then...

    President Obama defended the IRS Tuesday in an interview with Daily Show host Jon Stewart, saying the tea party-targeting scandal was actually Congress fault for passing a crummy law and that the real problem is the agency doesnt have enough money. Mr. Obama, who has overseen a series of scandals at the IRS, the Veterans Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and now the Office of Personnel Management, was asked why government didnt seem to be working on his watch. But the president said hes not to blame, using the IRS as an example of how what...

    As we all remember, the media completely freaked out after the Supreme Court decided Citizens United in favor of free speech. Taking aim primarily at the right-leaning Koch Brothers, the media posed as defenders of democracy against the corrupting influence of outside money in politics. As usual, the facts prove that the media are big fat liars. Although legions of left-wing corporations like NBC News, Politico, MSNBC, CNN, CBS News, ABC News, The Washington Post, LA Times, NPR, PBS, Univision, Comedy Central, MTV, HBO, and ESPN spend billions of dollars pushing a political agenda 24/7, the left-wing media want a...

    As expected, Bill Maher has now weighed in on the non-troversy, that erupted this week when Jerry Seinfeld bemoaned the culture of political correctness on college campuses and Maher went a step farther. Both Maher and his guest Comedy Central roast master Jeffrey Ross, agreed with Seinfeld, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with their work. The big stunner came when Maher acknowledged that liberals have become so infected by political correctness, that they have been rendered all but incapable of finding his brand of humor amusing. As a result, Maher has had to modify the...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Jon Stewart hasn't said much about quitting "The Daily Show" -- until now. In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, Stewart said he's been enjoying his hosting duties less and less and feeling more pessimistic about the subjects of the show -- politics and the news media. "It's not like I thought the show wasn't working any more, or that I didn't know how to do it," he said. "It was more, 'Yup, it's working. But I'm not getting the same satisfaction.'" Stewart added: "These things are cyclical. You have moments of dissatisfaction, and then you come...

One tells the story of a time Stewart screamed in a producer's face and threw a newspaper at her, only to later apologize and explain, "Sorry, that's bad Jon. ... I try not to let him out." There are more such tales of Stewart's angry side in the book, Forbes reports, and Rogak notes, "I'm surprised that...

    I suppose you could give Campbell Brown and John Heilemann credit for candor. They've made it clear that when it comes to qualifications for replacing Jon Stewart as Daily Show host, there is one fatal flaw: being a conservative. On today's With All Due Respect, Brown and John Heilemann were kicking around the results of a poll as to whom Americans prefer to replace Stewart. Tina Fey came in first, with Dennis Miller a close second. Said Brown: "I can't imagine Dennis Miller. Hasn't he gone right wing?" Heilemann agreed: "that's not going to work." View the video here.

It would have been nice if he asked if she were reconsidering the possiblility of running for president due to her book sales tumbling so quickly or what she thinks about the possibility of Elizabeth Warren running for the same office. However the interview was significant in one respect: Hillary gaves the strongest hint yet that she is definitely going to throw her pantsuit into the ring. It came at the 1:30 mark of this video when Hillary answered Stewart's...

    Trevor Noah, the 31 year-old South African comedian hand-picked by Jon Stewart and Comedy Central to replace Stewart, has a major Twitter problem on his hands. Being shot to superstardom often results in an instantaneous social media vetting, something Noah, Stewart, and Comedy Central were apparently unaware of. It’s fairly obvious no one in charge vetted Noah’s Twitter feed or they just didn’t care that it is loaded with jokes aimed at gays, Asians, the overweight, and Jews. This revelation is especially interesting after learning that Noah has already trashed America as racist. The hypocrisy of Jon Stewart is just...

To get a feel for Noah's brand of humor, one could simply watch his debut on the fake news show in December of 2014, when he jokingly declared that present-day America had worse race relations than Apartheid South Africa. After introducing Noah as the show's newest contributor at the time, Stewart noted: "And I know that you flew in, I guess, yesterday from South Africa." Noah replied: "Yeah, I just flew in and boy are my arms tired....No,...

The look on Brand’s face as he looked around the stage and crowd while detonating these devilish observations on Jimmy Fallon was pitiful—in the most genuine sense of the word.

Roy Sekoff at The Huffington Post stands out by insisting the movie only polishes this walking statue: "In finding this format, in this form, you have become obviously a cultural icon, maybe one of the dominant figures in the political discourse."

    As Sean said on his radio show, Stewart et al seriously invested in this comedy bit. A video of libs begging Sean to stay - including an actual Broadway star number. http://m.comedycentral.com/tds_video.rbml?id=sean-of-the-fled---stay-mr--hannity--stay Sean was flattered. Of course it just reassures the Stewart audience that Sean Hannity and all conservatives are evil racist intolerant bigots while the audience remains so very tolerant.

The tweet was an apparent attempt at using the occasion of the May 20 twister to comment on the scandal currently plaguing the IRS and Obama administration.

During the second presidential debate President Obama told challenger Mitt Romney that he found suggestions that he and his administration were covering up the truth about the terrorist attack on Benghazi for political reasons "offensive." He said he was the one who had to greet the coffins when they came home. Then they deserve more honor, respect and protection than they were given by their...

The government is a big operation and [at] any given time something screws up, he also said, saying that he believes you find out whats broken and you fix it. Obama promised that his administration publicized information about the Benghazi attack as quickly as it came in, which contradicts previous reports....
