your moment of zen

Jon Stewart is a genius. He has matured into a national leader, whether he likes it or not. Fake news has become a portal of truth in the vast array of 24 hour sensationalized fear instilling media. Call The Daily Show liberal, call it laughable, but never call it damaging and never attempt to supress the criticism of government. Remember, the side not in power is the side without the power to supress or distort the truth. The conflict between the followers and opposers of the president cannot be put in terms of liberal and conservative, it has become a conflict between the rational and the irrational, the educated and the ignorant, the New York Times readers and the NASCAR fans. Jon Stewart is on the rational side.

FOX News dialogue between Bill O'Reilly and John Stewart

I had no idea that 87 percent of Daily Show viewers are intoxicated.

Stewart on Crossfire with Tucker Carlson.

STEWART: Now, this is theater. It's obvious. How old are you?

CARLSON: Thirty-five.

STEWART: And you wear a bow tie.

This comment is one glorious moment in one hell of an admirable appearance by Stewart on CNN.

Stewart post 9/11 monologue.

What an American and a journalist should be.

Stewart on Larry King

"We would make fun of something else, if government suddenly became inspiring, moved towards people's better nature, and began to solve problems in a rational way rather than just in a way that involved political dividends."

I realize that I am blowing Jon Stewart with this post, but nevertheless he is inspiring. He can argue all day long that he has no influence, I can vouch otherwise.
