The really funny thing about this one is that when I went to the page, I thought the headline "A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL" was for the story about Jon Stewart appearing on 60 Minutes!

2004-10-21 02:20:59 PM  
It's only a little blurb about it, under the "Next on 60 Minutes" pic. Just thought I'd give a heads-up for those that want to know.
2004-10-21 02:26:55 PM  
Thanks Quick1! I've set the old tivo.
2004-10-21 02:56:53 PM  
Anyone? What is Colgate talking about?
2004-10-21 02:58:43 PM  
i'm trying to work that out myself. i think he's having an "episode".
2004-10-21 02:59:39 PM  
Is "butt buddy" conservativespeak for gay?
2004-10-21 03:01:35 PM  

That would be "pillow-biter". "Butt-pirate" is also acceptable.

2004-10-21 07:20:15 PM  
...and LIBERALISM is BAD because the LIBERALS do it and LIBERALS are BAD because KING BUSH SAID SO.
2004-10-21 07:27:28 PM  
"The Pied Piper of Cowards"?????

The Jon Stewart I saw on Crossfire slapped the hell out of the (very powerful) jounalism industry by pointing out that their style is hurting America.... which is perfectly true.

If that's a coward, I'd like to see a few thousand more.
2004-10-21 07:42:09 PM  
i love jon stewart.

that is all.
2004-10-21 07:57:26 PM  
YAY! I'll be watching.
2004-10-21 07:58:20 PM  
Those goddamn liberal cowards poluting the airwaves with their vicious-america hating bile ! How dare they say that our god-fearing president is an incompetant ? It starts with comedians, next they teach our kids that man comes from monkeys. We need a strong christian presence in the whitehouse. Not a baby-killing, welfare-loving catholic who married a non-american.

What is wrong with going to war for oil ? The left-wing hollywood elite need oil to power up their private jets so they can fly to their cocaine filled gay orgies. what a bunch of hypocrits
2004-10-21 08:36:26 PM  
i just love the lib-u-ral media conspiracy attatchment some seem to have with john stewart/the daily show.

maybe i'm missing something here, but hasn't this show done nothing but make fun of the media for years? yah, there are some bush jokes tossed in for flavor (same as clinton jokes were) but the overall jist of the show is poking fun at the mainstream media.
2004-10-21 09:09:29 PM  
Now I'll have a reason to watch 60 Minutes for the first time in years.

and yes, Andy Rooney is a dick, and I hope Jon Stewart rips the old fart a new one.
2004-10-21 09:17:27 PM  
talk about clash of the age demographics
2004-10-21 10:33:05 PM  
Crossfire, 60 Minutes...but he's not a journalist, remember. He needs that fig leaf to hide behind.
2004-10-21 10:35:39 PM  
Sounds like Stewart just likes to biatch. I can't stand Begala or Tucker(haha) Carlson, but if he knows how to do it right, why doesn't he do it himself and lead by example. And saying you're not a journalist and having people believe you is just as easy as saying you are and having people believe you.
2004-10-21 10:35:41 PM  
Bowtie invited him on "unfiltered."
2004-10-21 10:36:08 PM  
Hot damn... I don't watch 60 minutes much anymore, but if there's even the vaguest possibility of him and Andy Rooney waxing sarcastic together, I am so there.
2004-10-21 10:37:31 PM  
He is only pointing out what a lot of people fail to notice about the media. It's about time someone did.
2004-10-21 10:38:05 PM  
Yeah, Pfil. Your point is just as true this time as the other 20 times you've said it, just before being schooled.

/not a journalist, still entitled to an opinion, and if asked to spout it on 60 Minutes, I'd do it.
//not apt to happen
2004-10-21 10:38:21 PM  
Andy Rooney is a dick, but he is also very liberal, so Stewart will obviously give him a pass.

I take it you mean to insinuate that the appearances on Crossfire and 60 minutes mean he's actually a journalist. Quick, someone tell everyone else who's ever appeared on those shows that now they are magically journalists too!
2004-10-21 10:38:34 PM  
Jon Stewart is the voice of the youngest generation of voters, imho. Also wanted to say something before this hit infinity
2004-10-21 10:39:43 PM  
Don't forget H2's in gridlock...
2004-10-21 10:39:56 PM  
Comedian playing newsman on TV accuses talking heads of making a joke out of news, ends up on a genuine news program.

Once more life imitates comedy.
2004-10-21 10:40:37 PM  
DVR set..thnx for the heads up
2004-10-21 10:40:44 PM  
Now if they could get Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, and Andy Rooney to do a show together...


Actually, that wouldn't be very appealing visually, but I'd watch anyway.
2004-10-21 10:40:49 PM  
60 minutes hasnt been a genuine news program for 20 yrs
2004-10-21 10:40:50 PM  
Whoa! What comment of Colgate's are we talking about? .. 'Cause I don't see it. Did he get banninated?
2004-10-21 10:41:46 PM  
In light of the flames to come:

how many jon stewart debates have happened this week?

^It's okay.. you can cry.
2004-10-21 10:42:27 PM  
When reminded that the Television Critics Association voted his "Daily Show" the best news and information program of the year, Stewart says, "I think in some respects, they were punking you, as opposed to praising us."

Heh. It takes talent to spontaneously belittle your accomplishments and make fun of someone else with the same statement.
2004-10-21 10:42:31 PM  
Andy Rooney a dick, yes
Andy Rooney a liberal, yes
John Stewart a liberal, yes
But John Stewart isn't a closed minded retartd like Andy Farkin Rooney

I'm looking around for your point like Dubya looking for WMDs. I'm not finding it.
2004-10-21 10:42:53 PM  
Jon Stewart is in his 40s.
2004-10-21 10:42:58 PM  
thinking about my friend that comes over and insists on watching 60 minutes, saying "you know I need my fix of liberal media" (hes from Boston)
2004-10-21 10:43:08 PM  
I gotta say, he has balls. On the one hand he probably won't offend much of his viewing audience, but on the other hand he will probably offend everyone else.

/offense is good

*looking for GoodDamon's analogy skills*...also conspicuously missing
2004-10-21 10:44:21 PM  
I'm in favor of offending everyone.

/And if you don't like it, I'm offended!
2004-10-21 10:44:22 PM  
BASHTURN - Congratulations on starting a flamewar, where there was no flame war before. Way to thump that bible, champ.You keep hidin behind it.

Thinking about my friend who comes over and insists on watching wrestling, saying 'you know I need my fix of intellectual stimulation' (hes from Texas)

Once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.

Ahahahahahahahahahahaha, uhhh......sorry. Back to your regularly scheduled thread.
2004-10-21 10:46:21 PM  
Has anyone not figured out that bashturn was joking?
2004-10-21 10:46:25 PM  
To me, Jon Stewart is our generation's H.L. Mencken. And the only reason I know who the hell H.L. Mencken is is because I am doing a farking 10-page Ethics paper on him, lol!

Anyway, I think its very nice of Jon to speak out against the hand that feeds him. I just hope this new praise and his fighting with fellow Journalists doesn't affect the show's biting satire/comedy.
2004-10-21 10:46:26 PM  

It was all sarcasm.... just trying to teach Colgate a lesson...

Keep looking, Sparky.

/I listen to people who make baseless statements about news programs on the internet. Really.
2004-10-21 10:46:36 PM  

I assumed Bashturn was being sarcastic, did I miss something?
