You know, it seems like only 6 months ago Senate Republicans were all for getting troops out of Afghanistan. Gosh, I wonder what has changed since then?

You also have to wonder if the editors at Fox News just love seeing their own commentators get wrecked trying to match wits with Stewart. Live. On air. Without a room full of writers putting a script in front of them.

"Stupid Marsha. She took the last three jelly scones. Someone get Jon Stewart on the line. We gotta show her she cannot get away with that sh*t."

My nephew, whose first birthday was February 20th and whose go to move is "head first", is too smart for Faux.

Not smart enough to refuse a Fox News appearance.

I wouldn't go on there to piss on the camera.

Fair, but look at it like this, there is NOTHING that the Yankees/Sox, Leafs/Habs(orSens), ManU/ManCity, etc., love /MORE/ than going into their house.   And landing nothing but slobberknockers against them.

And sometimes even an old fighter likes to get back into the ring for a bout just to see if he's still got it.  Maybe a little slower, maybe not as hard, but still there.

Take one for the team,
Put me in Coach, I'm ready.

Video is 6:52 min long, mainly with Stewart talking about veterans exposed to Burn Pits.  The Faux News "bait" against Biden is at at the very end, at 5:50, and it's actually not that big a gotcha question.

They were trying to get Stewart to criticize Biden's spending. And they'dve aired that clip a trillion times a day if they'd gotten it.

I understand what's being *called* baiting, but I think the DB headline is overreaching

All I saw was Jon calmly stating facts and not playing their game. I see more hype/outrage media on here than in that video.

...this ain't sports.  You don't go into a place where they're already manipulating your words against you.  They've already got enough ammo on you without you gift-wrapping more of it.

Think of it this way:  Going on Fox News gives Mike Lindell his coke money.

Listening to the news on the radio during a drive today, and apparently McConnell is really concerned about leaving the region, possibly resulting in instability and the US abandoning our allies.

I briefly considered taking a detour down to DC to Mitchslap him in person.

Don't know if its hardcore but its different. "Sad" is what comes to mind when I think of todays news outlets. Its all about hype/outrage, just so they can generate ad revenue.

TOOO BE FAAAAAIR....

To be fair, he was going for a very important cause. That cause being millions of veterans not getting treatment for exposure to nasty chemicals.

No, crafting grade-A pillows with financing available is what gives Mike Lindell his coke money. It's the best sleep you'll ever have, now available in multiple sizes. In addition, you can get $10 off your first order if you respond in the next 30 minutes!

FTFA: Jon Stewart has made a surprising number of appearances on that network in years, almost exclusively to promote his activism around issues like medical benefits for 9/11 first responders

Interesting, I wonder why he hasn't been on Tucker Carlson?

I thought Stewart was clear and informative and whats-her-name did her best to sound concerned. However as an example of 'baiting' I think she was half hearted about it. Had she asked a follow up I'd think different. Add to that the fact that he has a focus on 10% of a single line item in the defense budget. His trajectory was already set.

Shiat did I just watch Fox agree with Jon Stewart?

Also that sort of burning crap rather than burying or taking with you went out in the Australian army when I was in it, 30 farking years ago.

Hardcore in a negative way, I concur.
