  • How TV Censorship Works for Democrats

    Townhall ^ | Wednesday, April 9, 2014 | Brent Bozell
    On April 1, Washington Mayor Vincent Gray was denied a second term, defeated in the primary by upstart city councilwoman Muriel Bowser. The beginning of the end came on March 10, when U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen struck a plea bargain with a wealthy businessman who confessed he'd spent $668,000 on an illegal "shadow campaign" to fund get-out-the-vote efforts that helped Gray win the mayoral office in 2010. So the corrupt mayor of America's most important city is thrown out. A political scandal? The same networks that were utterly breathless over the local story of Gov. Chris Christie's aides slowing traffic...

    This appearance by Nancy Pelosi on The Daily Show starts to run off the rails almost immediately. Jon Stewart starts off by asking Pelosi about why people talk about politics rather than policy, to which Pelosi answers by … complaining about Republicans.

    House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sat down with The Daily Show host Jon Stewart on Thursday for a contentious interview. The interview became tense when Stewart attempted to get Pelosi to explain why government appears to function so poorly to the outside observer. When Pelosi attempted to explain why this was the case, Stewart became even more agitated. “Right now, we have a school of thought in the House Republican caucus that is anti-government, anti-science, anti-Obama,” Pelosi said when asked about the nature of governance in Washington. “They have a trifecta that just enables them to vote against...

    What was the most “over-covered” story of the year according to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes? Thanks to Fox News’ “obsession,” the MSNBC host gave that honor to the “knockout game” trend that was apparently sweeping the nation. Though at times it seemed that CNN was giving as much airtime to the “knockout game,” in which young hooligans were caught on camera approaching innocent strangers and punching them in the face, Fox News definitely let the charge. “This has been on Fox all the time,” Hayes said, before playing clips of Bill O’Reilly, Gretchen Carlson, Greta Van Susteren and Sean Hannity hyping...

    Washington Post political blogger Chris Cillizza has discovered President Barack Obama’s “biggest problem.” It is “fanatical Republican opposition to his agenda and a money-captured political system that gives a minority party a great deal of power to act on that opposition.” Haha just kidding, no, it’s not that, it’s “Jon Stewart.” You know, the funny cable show talking guy. The one who does the jokes that you like. What makes Stewart a problem is that he has been strongly criticizing/making funny jokes about the Obama administration’s major healthcare #fail this week.

In this rare appearance on Stewart’s program, Krauthammer was promoting his new book, “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics,” and explained how in working on the book he realized when he had made the transformation from liberal to conservative.

    President Obama’s biggest problem when it comes to selling the American public on the so-far rocky rollout of his health-care law isn’t John Boehner or Mitch McConnell or even Ted Cruz. It’s 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 president’s 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 comedian has been critical of the Obamacare website rollout. And with Stewart's young audience, this could prove problematic for the president. There's an unlikely media hero for conservatives following the stumbled rollout of the Obamacare website: Comedy Central's Jon Stewart. Stewart, whose topical political rants have made him a favorite among liberals, in recent weeks has been an honest and harsh critic of the Obama administration for its implementation of the president's signature health care legislation. His latest show Monday evening is now making the rounds among conservative circles as a pointed takedown of the health care website's malfunctions...

    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...

The website for people who don't have health insurance through their employers opened on Oct. 1, but has been plagued with glitches.

Stewart admitted that after piling on Fox News for so long for overreacting to every little thing Obama does, they finally have something to be justifiably angry about, and could not begrudge them their moment of outrage. Stewart even agreed that President Obama could have acted like Richard Nixon, but if he wasn’t directly involved, it’s still bad because that makes him Mr. Magoo.

Stewart pressed her to explain why there was so much back-and-forth between government agencies and why no one seemed to have the straight story. Stewart asked why there seemed to be more effort put into ironing out talking points rather than preventing the attack in the first place. As he put it, “Why is there a bureaucratic system in place that is so tenacious with the explanation, yet...

He thought we had a 100 billion dollar surplus on the national debt from the Clinton Administration, when in fact it was on the deficit, not the debt. In Stewart's mind, Obama's 6 trillion dollar growth to the debt isn't as bad as Bush's. It's Bush's fault. O'Reilly tried to correct him, but I am not sure he or his followers understood the obvious mistake.

    See Video at the Site Former House Speaker and current Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., attacked Republicans for their opposition to debt ceiling increases, but defended President Obama for voting against a debt-ceiling increase when he was in the Senate, during an interview with Jon Stewart. Her effort to reconcile the two positions drove The Daily Show host to distraction. You can see the transcript and video below. Pelosi: "We didn't say, '[Bush] amassed this debt, we're not lifting the debt ceiling,' because we have to honor the full faith and credit of our country. Republicans with this president,...

    At the Occupy Phoenix demonstrations, fliers encourage protesters to violently resist police officers, asserting that "you will usually have only two options: submit, or kill the cop." At Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, an Occupy Wall Street protester was sexually assaulted in her tent; according to the New York Post, a woman was raped at the same site a few weeks earlier. In Denver, "Occupy" activists turned on the police, screaming obscenities and knocking a motorcycle cop to the ground. Occupy Oakland grew even more violent, as police were pelted with bottles and rocks, and had M-80 firecrackers thrown at them. And in cities from Boston toBerkeley, Occupy encampments...

    The revelation yesterday that a West Texas hunting camp used by the family of Rick Perry was named "Niggerhead" drew widespread outrage. The name is terribly offensive, of course, but is it also rare? That was the question on Jon Stewart's mind tonight during a Daily Show segment featuring Wyatt Cenac "on location" near New York's recently renamed "Nigger Lake."

    Stewart is a big lib but he's also a darned funny big lib I was hoping he'd beat fat Eddie like a red-headed stepchild over his editing of Rick Perry's comments, but it's mostly silly stuff about "color" commentary.

    <p>It seems that Newsweek’s cover photo of Rep. Michele Bachmann has already proven to be a game-changer: it got Jon Stewart to defend the Republican presidential candidate for an entire segment– not an easy feat. Stewart blasted the magazine for deliberately finding an unflattering photo of the Congresswoman, arguing “you’ve got to go pretty far” to find an unflattering one, listing examples of Bachmann making “yelling into a bullhorn” look attractive, and giving editor Tina Brown a dose of her own medicine.</p>

    NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Jon Stewart says the worst part about conservative complaints of media bias is when they contain "a kernel of truth" -- and that conservatives have a point about Newsweek's unflattering Michele Bachmann cover. The cover describes her as "The Queen of Rage." Stewart called Newsweek out on Tuesday's "The Daily Show" for using cheap attempts to undercut the Minnesota representative and Republican presidential candidate. He mocked the magazine's statement that it ran the photo to capture the way she has galvanized Iowa voters. "I get it, Newsweek," Stewart said. "You put in 'The Queen of Rage'...
