Stewart and Fox Not Fair or Balanced

Interesting to watch Fox get all ruffled by comedian John Stewart. Stewart agrees with Fox's claim that he is not fair or balanced, and says that unlike Fox, he does not claim to be.

The satire is followed by a serious interview with a Tea Party member who wrote a book on the topic.

Stewart is soooo good. I think the accusation that the Stewart audience is unsophisticated is rather funny. The FOX (lupus of news, that was hilarious) politalkers dumb down the content of their shows unlike anything I've ever seen before--lots of blather to get people riled up, and no substantiating evidence. It's hard to believe the audiences of those FOX shows could be more sophisticated than Stewart's.

LOL, Generally speaking, most folks agree that those who use a fair or large amount of obscenities are thought to be unsophisticated or lack good interpersonal communications skills.

You must be thinking of the "devoid of obscenities" definition of "sophisticated", while I was thinking of the "intellectually appealing" definition.

I don't like the use of obscenities, but I tolerate the few Stewart uses because he's intellectually appealing to me, and funny. The retaliatory video in the OP is not representative of his usual shows, during which there are usually only a few bleeped-out words.

I agree with Bernie...if Steward wants the credibility that libs bestow on him, and that he so clearly craves, then he's going to have to inject a little honesty and balance into his schtick...otherwise all he's left with is schtick and a small audience of drunk, empty-headed liberal college students.

Stewart's a funny guy. I remember when he visited with some FOX political pundits and told them they were the problem because they
