  • Will Jake Tapper Become the New Face of Colt 45 Beer?

    NewsBusters ^ | April 8, 2016 | P.J. Gladnick
    Drive around outside at around daybreak and it is not an unusual sight to see men leaning against the outside walls of convenience stores chugging from cans wrapped in brown bags. Most often the brew of choice among such men is Colt 45 malt liquor. However, don't be too surprised if among such early morning Colt 45 fans, you spot Jake Tapper, host of CNN's The Lead, taking a chug from this brew and, perhaps, handing it off to his colleague, Wolf Blitzer. Such a speculation is not totally off the convenience store wall since Tapper seems to have embraced...

    Dalia Mogahed, formerly Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, appeared on Trevor Noah’s sinking-like-a-stone Daily Show last week, to explain to a worshipful Noah and an adoring audience that the hijab represented nothing more or less than the “privatization of women’s sexuality” – and who on earth but the most benighted lout could possibly be against that? The burning outrage of Mogahed’s words was probably missed by most Daily Show viewers. It should not be missed by FrontPage readers.

    A plurality of college students think billionaire businessman Donald Trump won the first Republican presidential debate, according to a poll released Monday. Twenty-six percent of college or college-bound students said Trump won the debate, according to a survey from Chegg, an online textbook rental and tutoring company. Sixteen percent said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush won, 14 percent thought Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) won and 10 percent went for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

    Many liberals, but not conservatives, believe there is an important asymmetry in American politics. These liberals believe that people on opposite sides of the ideological spectrum are fundamentally different. Specifically, they believe that liberals are much more open to change than conservatives, more tolerant of differences, more motivated by the public good and, maybe most of all, smarter and better informed. The evidence for these beliefs is not good. Liberals turn out to be just as prone to their own forms of intolerance, ignorance and bias. But the beliefs are comforting to many. They give their bearers a sense of...

    Today is the 70th anniversary of President Trumans decision to bomb Hiroshima. Today is also Jon Stewarts final appearance as host of The Daily Show. Given the confluence of these two events, I somehow neglected to mention perhaps the daftest thing Stewart ever did during his 16 years host of The Daily Show in my rather brutal assessment of his intelligence and his comedic talents. Remember in 2009 when Stewart told Cliff May, president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, that President Truman was a war criminal because he dropped the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

    As Jon Stewart wraps up his final week as host of the Daily Show, he used his Monday night show to attack a recent Koch brothers event that featured numerous Republican presidential candidates in attendance. Stewart opened up his broadcast by making a crude sexual joke at the expense of the GOPers in attendance who worked the talking points and cradled the special interests in the hopes of one of them after a period of 45 minutes to an hour would induce the money shot. And really, they didn't care which Koch went off. Later in the segment, the Daily...

    For Jon Stewart, this certainly isnt the high note he wanted to go out on. The guy who prides himself on speaking truth to power, as the anti-establishment, take-to-both-sides-hero for millennials everywhere reduced to a stenographer for a sitting president so thin-skinned about any and all criticism that he needs to dictate his own comedy. As originally reported in Politico by Darren Samuelson, the outgoing Daily Show host met with President Barack Obama twice in the past four years but failed to let anyone know about it. It was only then that Stewart who loves to play the Im...

Pressed on prominent instances of malfeasance and ineptitude that have plagued the federal bureaucracy during his administration -- from the VA wait list scandal, to the catastrophic OPM hack, to the IRS targeting affair -- Obama breezily dismissed the latter example as a non-scandal, chalking it up to Congress writing "crummy" laws that were merely implemented "poorly and stupidly."  The Washington Times reports: President Obama defended the IRS Tuesday in an interview with “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, saying the tea party-targeting scandal...

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."

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...

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.

But if you’re searching your television lineup for a conservative antidote to Stewart, the field is rather limited. There is late night Red Eye’s Greg Gutfeld, there is… actually, there’s just Gutfeld. Or there was until this month, when The Flipside with Michael Loftus debuted on...

    As Newsbusters' Jeffrey Meyer wrote earlier today, Jon Stewart lobbed softballs to Hillary Clinton last night on the Daily Show. 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...

    President Obamas biggest problem when it comes to selling the American public on the so-far rocky rollout of his health-care law isnt John Boehner or Mitch McConnell or even Ted Cruz. Its Jon Stewart. (snip) Stewart dedicated the entire first 10 minutes of his show three full segments on Monday to slashing hits on the Web site and the presidents handling of the problems. He compared Obama to Gil, the hapless salesman from The Simpsons, showed Daily Show correspondent John Oliver stuck in a computer after trying to sign up for Obamacare and expressed amazement that even the...

    The White House insists that the health-care law has not affected hiring. That's not what the numbers show. There are times when the Obama administration makes statements so disconnected from economic reality that you wonder if any White House official has talked with anyone in business. A case in point: the administration's mantra that ObamaCare's definition of full-time employment as 30 or more hours per week had no effect on employers' hiring practices. We heard it Monday night on "The Daily Show" when Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius told Jon Stewart: "At least the economists, not anecdotal...

    Secular Pro-Life condemns a recent comment by comedian John Oliver, who is currently standing in for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Oliver implied that abortion restrictions are motivated solely by religion and not by secular concern for the human right to life. The comment came on Monday nights episode. The segment, which can be viewed here, focused primarily on the Supreme Courts recent decision weakening the Voting Rights Act. But about four and a half minutes in, the subject turned to abortion. Commenting on a recent North Carolina senate bill that addressed both abortion safety regulations and sharia law,...

    The most creative propaganda organization in the business today is the Daily Show. John Oliver, who begins a long stint guest hosting tonight, is deconstructed in this short YouTube video about his recent rants concerning gun control. Poor Brits never get it right. http://youtu.be/JveejEGxgP0

    She thought she was making a topical political joke, but a co-creator of The Daily Show managed to enrage many of her followers after tweeting joke about the Oklahoma tornados political motivations. This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives, wrote comedian Lizz Winstead, in a tweet, around 3:30 Monday afternoon. 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. Winstead, co-creator and former head writer for The Daily Show, promptly received a stream of...

    Lizz Winstead heard about the tornado touching down in Oklahoma today and her liberal ideology quickly kicked in. Winstead, who created The Daily Show and uses social media to promote her far-left views, sent out this Twitter joke earlier today: "This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives." Social media brushback quickly followed, and Winstead served up a speedy apology for letting her progressive nature supercede a sense of decency toward the victims of the tornado. "Made a political joke, Twas before devastation revealed. In hindsight, had I understood, I would have refrained....

    As families and schoolchildren hunkered down in storm shelters to avoid a massive tornado today near Oklahoma City, a liberal comedian found time to use the disaster to attack conservatives. The subtext of a tweet from Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead was clearly meant to insult the pro-life and family values people who live in the state of Oklahoma, one of the most Republican-oriented states in the nation. At a time when PrayforOklahoma is the highest trending topic on Twitter, conservatives noted Winsteads lack of class. This is the same Winstead who attacked Michele Bachmann on abortion and raises funds...
