Misconduc: udhq: Misconduc: Well considering he started with nothing and is one of the most successful businessmen in United states, yeah he can be an asshole all he wants - he earned it.

*Spit take*

Not sure if serious.....

Isn't donald worth 4 billion? *not sure if serious* that sounds like a ton of cash for someone not successful. I think he just might of picked up a thing or two hundred million from dear ol dad.

It is not even that I disagree so much as cannot stand his fake laughter, oh and the fact that he hides behind being a comedian when he clearly wants to direct political discourse.


Al Franken has now said he's above reproach..lol

The Daily Show is a satire of news mediatainment. If "news media" weren't nakedly trying to direct the political discourse, he'd have nothing to push back against.

I know what it is, but it transcended that 5 years ago and has become the starting point for many people's news. I know this because it's obvious. The Daily Show is part of politics now.

It's propaganda disguised as comedy. And no, I don't care how that sounds since I am correct.

I want my comedy divorced from politics, I mean, they at least can't share the same beach house, except on holidays.


Recently, several reputable/independent media-watch organizations have concluded that The Daily Show is a better source of informed and informative news than CNN, MSNBC, FOXNews, or most other major network news stations. Don't take my word for it, it's easy enough to find on Google. So yeah, it *has* become the starting point for many people. Don't blame The Daily Show for other networks' choices to do pandernews.

And it's not "propaganda" just because you don't agree with it. And no, saying you are correct doesn't make you correct.

By the way, comedy has *never* been divorced from politics. _Bloom County_, _Doonesbury_, Will Rogers, Mark Twain, Punch & Judy, _Punch_ magazine, court jesters through the ages... hell, Hammurabi probably had some guy off in the wings cracking jokes. Politics may not be where comedy got its start, but comedy has informed and shaped politics since forever. You'll get used to it.

/or not... and I really couldn't care

reaperducer: It's not so much that I'm surprise that people give a crap what Donald Trump is up to, it's that I can't believe people still give a crap about Jon Stewart.  He became a cliche parody of himself within the first couple of seasons.

For some reason there's this group of people who are all about Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Seth Rogan.  They get all of their news and worldviews through those lenses.  And at the same time, they're also the loudest bunch of farkers on the internet and know nothing about the things they shout about.

If you still find the Daily Show interesting, it's probably time to get out of your mom's basement and get a job.


Please, *please* tell me you watch Fox News and still said all that with utter sincerity and indignation.

Or awareness of the irony.

It's cathartic.  Not much different from what hard right conservatives get out of Rush Limbaugh when they're sick to death of hard left liberalism.  That said, if I need political catharsis I'd much rather laugh with Jon Stewart than bust a rage vein with Limbaugh.

The lefties are better at comedy, that's for sure. And I appreciate the catharsis of it all, I guess it's worn thin.


The "lefties," most notably Jon Stewart, chose humor as a foil to the "righties'" choice of vitriolic hate. Right-wing strategists Ailes & company engineered the Politics of Fear that's currently polarizing and destroying the country. Some on the left (e.g. Bill Maher) tried to combat it with equally-vitriolic talk radio/tv from the other side, but it failed to gain traction because fear and hate don't actually play well to middle/left America. Say what you will about the left, you cannot broadly accuse them of hating/fearing other people. The right's complaint has always been that the left doesn't fear other people *enough.* "Bleeding hearts," right?

Then along come Stewart, Colbert, and Jon Oliver. Completely different approach. Call it the Politics of Laughter. It tries to defuse the fear, to draw out the venom. It's hard to hate when you're laughing. And it's effective, and it's expanding.

Now, Stewart's real genius is embracing people (as people) like O'Reilly while making fun of their illogic/gaffes. In other words, reject their politics but dialogue with the person. What I've seen of Oliver misses this; Oliver is too tempted, by the dark side as it were, and criticizes without compassion. It's just the left version of the politics of fear and hate, closer to Stewart in format but Maher in spirit. Stewart knows that presenting the left p.o.v. isn't enough. He's trying to redress the balance of views on the airwaves, yes, but he's also trying to draw some of the venom out of modern politics. He's trying to get people to listen to each other even when-- *especially* when-- they disagree.

Compromise politics is the only thing that ever made this country work. Congress' current historic lows in compromise, do more than "coincide" with an historically low rate of accomplishment *and* historically low public opinion ratings. It's not a coincidence at all.

Me, I've always been a centrist. Like most Anericans, I like some planks from the right and some from the left. But in the last two decades, the right has been trying to force everyone to take a hard-right position or be left out. And it's pushing me increasingly towards the left, since the left is largely still willing to let me be in control.

Sadly, there is a movement on the left to mirror the right's extremism. If it succeeds, I don't know where that'll leave folks like me who don't believe in "pick a side, we're at war" politics. If you agree that blind obedience is a poor substitute for good citizenship, you'll root for Stewart's approach even while hating his views. Oddly enough, he's doing more to protect your right to free thought than any of the mouthpieces I can think of on the side of red-right-and-blue.

Well, not entirely useless - those people always get something done. But a real possibility of charging without pause in the wrong direction all by yourself is worse than simply failing to change the world*. In this case you're probably charging in the right direction, but in a society which politicizes underwater basket-weaving you're going to have a hard time finding a joke which doesn't have some political content.

I have no feelings one way or the other about your point, but the style in which it was made reminds me too much of people like Pat Robertson. There's an admittedly slim possibility that he may be right about something eventually, but if that ever happens nobody will listen because of his track record and because he'll still sound insane. I know nothing of your track record and you may or may not actually be insane yourself (which doesn't really matter on a site like this), but the addition of that one little sentence has probably pushed more people to adamantly disagree with the point than would otherwise have simply disagreed and forgotten all about it.

/*Ask me how I know.

walktoanarcade: soseussme: I'm pretty sure that if anybody laughs, it IS comedy. If comedy/"propaganda disguised as" gets more people paying attention to politics than otherwise would, I think that's a good thing.

You got me there, no doubt they get laughs.

The other part of that I disagree on completely. They would be better off reading the newspapers.

Actually, if I focused solely on comedy..I'd starve to death, but seriously I compartmentalize my humor. I have material for an act, and I've gone so far as to use it here and there as small tests. I'm getting there. More material, hone the inflections, work on impressions...

However making a show every day? I think mine would be closer to Chappelle Show (without the "S" is how it started) than the Daily Show, really.

Avoiding the divisive topical humor is kind of my thing in public, in person I mean.


You remind me so much of Hauk from _Good Morning Vietnam_. Lord but you suck the fun right out of "fun."

Mithiwithi: walktoanarcade: And young man, I know what satire is, and I also know when it's thinly-disguised satire that ALWAYS paints the democrats in a slightly, if not dramatic, better light.  The Daily Show may as well be run by the democratic party.

Ah, I see the problem. You're upset with TDS and Jon Stewart because he mocks Republicans much more than he mocks Democrats.

Then he shouldn't act as if he's not playing favorites, huh?


Yeah... he doesn't. He's pretty open about being more left-leaning.

Here's a question: where's all your anger and criticism over Fox "Fair and Balanced?" Have you *ever* criticized Fox for pretending to be unbiased? I can't recall your mentioning it in this thread.

So your hate for TDS is really about "he doesn't believe what I believe." Stop painting it as something else. If you really hated TDS because you hate TV people pretending they don't play favorites, then by now you would be slamming Fox just as hard. Harder, actually; whereas, in your view, Stewart is misleading, Fox practices outright lies and open hypocrisy.

So just stop pretending. Kind of ironic that you need to be told that given the context.

FOX News has been so successful that they have rendered themselves unnecessary. Their listeners will, all by themselves, do a wholesale rewrite of facts to suit the narrative. Often without ever having encountered the real facts to begin with.

Is it Stewart's fault that republicans do and say stupid shiat? It's a comedy show and the republicans produce a lot of it.

No, it isn't his fault.

Hey, sorry for being an ass to you that day I don't know how many days back.  If I get the feeling someone dislikes me for one thing, I assume they dislike the whole package. At any rate, I could and should be a bit nicer.

(even if you actually loathe me and think I'm terrible, I am sorry for being an ass that day) Just taking this opportunity since I am not going to send e-mails.

Is that your way of admitting being wrong about the whole "started with nothing" bit? Because that claim was 50% of your first answer. I'd hate to think you'd do anything weaselly like redirecting someone's response to the part of your claim that's slightly (and only slightly) less shaky, without even acknowledging you were flat-out wrong about the first part.

Look, : You're insecure and you expect me to spout what you'd spout. I've already given my opinion on fox news, and since you're in love with me so much, sleuth it out yourself, or maybe ask one of your worthless online "friends" and see if you can find ONE SINGLE positive thing I have said about said TV channel.

Frederf: I find Trump annoying and arrogant, but if he puts his name on a building he bought... meh. How could you care? Is it really that bad? If you hate it so much get angry at the very real "Yes, sir. You can do that." department that approved the thing. I dislike sleazy stupid rich people but I HATE populist emotion-driven hurt-society unequal law enforcement.


There's some debate about whether he actually did what he was given permission to do.

Anyhow, lots of people, and Chicagoans at large, care an awful lot about architecture and the aesthetic appearance of city skylines. To these folks-- yes, they really care and, yes, it really matters.

The absence of care on your part doesn't make it meaningless. It probably makes your opinion meaningless, and you should be ok with that. My opinion on your wallpaper (or lack thereof) is similarly meaningless. But if you happen to have a conversation with a friend about it, I promise I won't pop into your life just to ask why anyone cares or if it has any meaning.

No, really, he's gone Bankrupt a few times. He has others bankroll the properties he puts his name on, then cashes in on that fame. The dude was in debt billions of dollars in the 90's, and the only thing keeping him afloat were the 3 casino's he owned. As we know, the house always wins. Basically, he accrued a shiatload of debt building the casinos, gave a bunch of property to the Banks while filing bankruptcy and did everything he could to keep his casinos. Casinos generate money. He is known for way overextending his lines of credit, then giving up the farm just to keep his revenue streams. Had the banks taken his casinos back in the early 90's, he'd be a has been right now for VH1's Where Are They Now type shows.

The best part, is up until 2007 or so, he was a Democrat, even being critical of Bush during his presidency. Now, he's a hardcore Republican.

Truth be told, he's not a financial guru or genius by any stretch of the definitions, he's just insane. He's destroyed more of his investments than he's created simply by being The Donald, as if it has some sway in the real world. Simply put: If The Donald is investing in something, get out now, because he will take you down with his own investments.

Yup. What's the saying? "Get a loan for ten thousand bucks and the bank owns you; get a loan for ten million and you own the bank." Scale those numbers up and you have Trump; he leveraged his assets and name into loans so big the banks couldn't afford to let him fail because they'd be overextended and would collapse with him.

He has made a business of being bailed out, and the real wonder is how he gets loans on new ventures. But then, we know from recent experience that banks are as susceptible as anyone to promises of big money.

I'm kinda sick of hearing about "people who only get their news from the Daily Show".  These people do not exist.  You'd "need* to get your news somewhere else for the Daily Show's comedy to be funny.  If you turned on the program, with no prior knowledge of what they were talking about, it'd be like watching a program in a foreign language.

This is the polar opposite of FOX News, where if you get your news from *anywhere* outside the echo chamber, it won't make sense.

MontanaDave: Ishkur: walktoanarcade: If I get the feeling someone dislikes me for one thing, I assume they dislike the whole package.

I think what everyone dislikes about you is that when you are wrong (which is almost all the time), you refuse to admit that you are wrong, and instead of letting things go or leaving the thread, you dig deep with the mighty Shovel Of Arrogance, plant your Boots of Ignorance and refuse to budge off your Opinion of Worthlessness, even going so far as to insist that everyone accept that you are right when you haven't the inclination to ever back up your assertions with evidence or citations (hell, you've already done it in this thread).

That makes you a thoroughly unlikable person. Who would even want to have a conversation with someone like that?

This is why I have him/her farkied as "This person is insane."


No joke, even his/her profile. Anyhow, I've got a similar notation on the account now: paranoid, possibly insane.

I wish they'd call it "Farked" instead of "favorited." The former is a good neutral term covering lots of uses. Some folks aren't quite so bad as to need Ignoring, but the need to assign them a warning label doesn't make them a Favorite either.

You just know someone's writing a 'bot to profile us by our Favorites. I don't want to end up on someone's equivalent of the no-fly list just because I needed to assign some warning labels.

walktoanarcade: I know it bothers some of you that I won't submit to group-think and refuse to say I'm incorrect when I am correct.
and the name-calling proves how right I am..since apparently what I have said got under your skin.


Whatever. You're a white supremacist.

No one gives a shiat what you think.

walktoanarcade: I don't have a team like you do. I'm not even an "independent", I'm probably going to stop voting too because it doesn't affect anything.


You don't know what the fark is going on, but fark those liberals, right? You're the pure product of a propaganda model created to manufacture the personality that is you. It probably started with your parents parents.

moeburn: Colin O'Scopy: Sigh. Does NOBODY EVER have a link to a Daily Show video that will work in the rest of the universe that ISN'T the usa??

That'd be nice.

Nope. Needs the latest version of flash, which Adobe is dropping support for. Got a real link, now?

brimed03: He has made a business of being bailed out, and the real wonder is how he gets loans on new ventures.


He's been dining out for decades on being the only one in New York City who could get shiat done in the 80's/early 90's.

Abox: When Trump stops banging babes he may give a crap that people think he's ridiculous.


But that's the point. He does care. He can't let anything go. That's why he goes after everyone who criticizes him about anything, no matter how insignificant they are.

Cyclometh: TV's Vinnie: How does someone as dense as Donald Trump get to become a bazillionaire while intelligent people struggle to even get a student grant for college?

A combination of being born wealthy and a lack of ethics.


He bets big every time. When he wins he makes money. When he loses he declares bankruptcy and everyone who did business with him eats the loss.

Aw, it's so cute that farkers think Stewart scored a "beatdown".
yeah! nothing like an unchallenged monologue with prompted audience approval! Whoo!
I bet Trump is so ashamed he'll just leave the public eye forever.

Oh, he's dating somebody recently? Who?

Frederf: I find Trump annoying and arrogant, but if he puts his name on a building he bought... meh. How could you care? Is it really that bad? If you hate it so much get angry at the very real "Yes, sir. You can do that." department that approved the thing. I dislike sleazy stupid rich people but I HATE populist emotion-driven hurt-society unequal law enforcement.

He's not breaking the law, he's just an asshole.

Phil Moskowitz: It probably started with your parents parents.


My parents parents were far better people than anyone alive today, and you can thank one of them for winning WWII because without their help, we could have lost.

There were not many code-breakers back then, not like now.

Yes, I am the product of something that's been in motion for longer than even my parents parents, as are all of us.

I was honestly surprised to discover that Trump Tower didn't have his name on it.

Most cities have rules about putting up signs,

As long as trump followed the rules what's the problem?  if a mayor does not like the results, he should call the Director of Planning and Permitting and get those sign rules changed.

walktoanarcade: You're probably not capable of understanding someone like me at all.


Oh dear Lord but you are beautiful. I'm gonna have to favorite you with this exact quote. I can even SEE you saying it in my mind. It looks a little like this
