MacEnvy: I was wondering when noted political analyst Howard Stern would weigh in.


Stern is a great interviewer and knows his politics as well if not better than the cable-news wharrmeisters and softball-tossers, even when he's not asking guests whether they've done anal.
 
2012-09-25 06:54:41 AM
So dumb...McCain will get way more than 20% of the vote.

Stern is a political moron and neophyte who slept through the BushCo years and didn't wake up until the FCC started going after him.

That you find him a credible political voice comes as little surprise.
 
2012-09-25 06:59:17 AM
Great, now every right wing blog is going to run with how stupid liberals are (or even how stupid black liberals are), even though Stern could have obviously done this with any group. I wish he would have been more of an equal opportunity offender and interviewed Romney supporters as well, even if he had to upstate NY to find some, just so I wouldn't have to hear to bullshiat spin afterwords.
 
2012-09-25 07:00:55 AM
And the GOP put their uninformed people in state and national office.....
 
2012-09-25 07:02:38 AM

Gunther: FTA: "Just trust me, not one person knew that Osama bin Laden was dead," Stern said during the segment.

Utter horseshiat. You interviewed a large number of people until you found some morons or people so desperate to be on air they were willing to pretend to be morons. You can do this with any group - the Daily Show did it once with Tea Partiers and OWSers in the same episode. 

God, I knew he was desperate for listeners, but I didn't know he was desperate enough to resort to O'Keefe ABC/NBC/CBS/NY Times/etc style dishonest editing shiat.

Leishu: Waldo Pepper: amazing, if this was about Romney, farkers would be spouting off about how stupid and backwards are Republican voters. But nope since this is about Obama voters we get.

Let's do a poll.

We'll ask how many Democrats know that Bin Laden is dead.

And then we'll ask how many Republicans think Obama is either Kenyan or Muslim.
.
What do you think the conclusion will be?


That you are an idiot? How about these questions?

We'll ask Democrats how they intend to pay back the $5,000,000,000,000 (plus interest) of debt they have heaped upon the country and future generations.

We'll ask Republicans if it's better to try to rein in the Obama spending orgy or let him continue getting the nation's credit rating downgraded.

And Stern probably didn't have to look for too long to get these answers. Probably just went straight to the Obama campaign volunteer office and got this.

It's worth pointing out that the Howard Stern show is not a news magazine show.

No reason to read newspapers.
The latest money-saving trick is to have pages put together in cities and states far removed from the place the newspaper is going to serve. It's called "hubbing" and it sucks on many levels, Ray.

/When the traditional media ceases to be irrelevant, people will turn to it for information.
 
2012-09-25 07:16:07 AM
Stern probably is second to only to Bill Moyers as an interviewer. And absolutely on top for certain things. But his political knowledge is fairly limited (not nearly as limited as he play on the radio though.) Robin is much more astute but rarely speaks about it.

All that said this was not a Stern interview and had absolutely nothing to do with politics.

Also, most of the Stern hate would have more heft if it were not painfully obvious the hater is simply parroting untruths they heard elsewhere.

Lsherm: Fark Me To Tears: I wouldn't be surprised if Fox News was telling its viewers that the whole Bin Laden take-down was a hoax perpetrated by the liberal media to garner support for Obama.

Makh: Meanwhile, Fox now realizes there are people who don't know that OBL is dead. This is great because Romney can finally kill him too. OBLs death isn't an Obama victory, it's an American victory (for Romney.)

Howard Stern interviews idiots who support Obama on the streets of New York, and Fox News is at fault.

Good job, guys, what a way to accept reality.


It is literally impossible to find functionally retarded people who will vote for anyone with an R in parentheses after their name and edit together a segment on how stupid Romney voters are, after all. Just can't be done.

Do you think the Soviet threat will escelate into armed conflict?
Should air planes have openable windows so people can let fresh air in?

karasoth: Obama supporters in Harlem are predominantly black

this exercise proves a portion of the community is only voting for Obama because he is black


Most of these people don't vote. Ever.

And New York is SO reliable Democratic that they don't make a difference.

Only about 20% of the people are Progressives so they need the totally uninformed if they plan on winning an election.

I can accept that there are misinformed or uninformed democrats or supporters of Obama. But we haven't let the misinformed and uninformed supporters take over and define our platform. On the other hand, the level of misinformation that seems to run abound in the Republican Party is staggering and scary.  And it seems that FOX News purposely keeps their audience misinformed. And implying that other news sources aren't telling them the truth (because it doesn't agree with their agenda) is a very bad thing. Sure viewers have a choice, but telling people that all other news sources are lying to them and putting their audience in a constant level of fear and anger is not a good thing.

I am not implying that MSNBC is not left leaning. I agree that MSNBC leans to the left. But you don't hear MSNBC telling their viewers on a regular basis that everybody else (including our president) is lying to them and therefore guns, religion and no abortions for you.

Those morons vote. Ain't that scary?


No. I want all eligible persons to vote. But I think that it is the news media's fault for not making sure that CORRECT information is provided to it's patrons (I am looking at you FOX News). Not conspiracy theories, not corrections in small print at the end of the program, not only showing what is favorable to your candidate. We are reaping that we have sown. Everybody is not a journalist just because you can type and have an opinion.

digistil: MacEnvy: I was wondering when noted political analyst Howard Stern would weigh in.

To be fair to Stern, he went from having someone that was a walking joke directly to Obama. Imagine finding oil on your property and then, after eight years of living the high life the oil disappears.


so if Obama wins this is how the entitled will feel the election after this one when their Saviour is no longer in office

one would be fact "do you know" and the other is opinion "do you think"

the first is simple one is either right or wrong and the second is more of a opinion. A person can have the opinion that they "think" Obama is lying and is in truth a Muslim.

I think this bit was just a bit for humor and heck Stern could go to Salt Lake city and out of a bunch of on the spot interviews find 10 people sounding like morons to put on the air

Stern was on record in 2008 as endorsing Ron Paul. I doubt that he supports Obama. But since you insist, I'll take back what I wrote and replace it with this: If Stern supports Ron Paul, there isn't a single one of these people who isn't *much* smarter than him, however ignorant they may be.

I have no problem with Stern doing this. Both sides have ignorant idiots in their base. If anything, this proves that the Democrats are more than just a country club for the educated elites we're always hearing about. No, it really doesn't bother me that a certain proportion of a party's base is ignorant. It's the number of ignorant elected officials that bother me. And, although the Democrats do have some excellent examples of ignorance, the Republicans still outshine them in the Great Dumb Parade.

Did you read my entire post? I would say that the people interviewed probably didn't watch any news (besides what Kim Kardashian was wearing today). What scares me are people who watch news and are still misinformed because the news organization is putting out conspiracy theories and won't self-correct or will self-correct in little font.

1. There is a difference between stupidity and ignorance. Look 'em up in the dictionary.

2. If Howard Stern weighed all the pros and cons of each candidate and after doing so came to the conclusion that he would vote for Ron Paul, he isn't ignorant, but he's pretty f**king dumb if you ask me.

I didn't forget. I actually never knew that in the first place.

My favorite of Jay's is still the one where he asks college graduates (what college I'm not sure) how many moons the Earth has. One response: "Uh, I dunno, three?" Not that I've watched Leno in a decade or so.
