He's an intellectual lightweight. God, to think we've gone from Gore Vidal to this

Leftist hack...along with Mahrer and Colbert. Talented though. Although it don't take a lot to make a Lib laugh...when the joke is about a Conservative.

That is overstated crap spewed by his detractors.

While they do have a writing staff (as does every single talk show host and politician), Stewart and Colbert still write a significant part of their material.

You have a read on the thoughts of college kids? The ones that may or may not treat his program as news...

There really are people who think he's a legitimate news source. And I'm an occasional viewer, not a detractor.

Seeing "conservatives" issue squirrely disclaimers for their conservatism tells you everything you need to know about who is winning the culture.

I'd argue exactly the opposite. It shows conservatives are intellectually honest enough to admit that there are some morons on their own side. Can't say the same for liberals.

He is a comedian not a commentator...I mean he is on Comedy Central.

I'm sure you could find some. You can always find people who miss the point with satire. But I assure you that's a very small part of the viewers.

And, btw, I actually could make the argument that his show is a legitimate source of information during the interview segments.

You were saying?

quote:

Well, in a result that he will probably accept as downright apocalyptic for America, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has been selected, in an online poll conducted by Time Magazine, as America's Most Trusted Newscaster, post-Cronkite. Matched up against Brian Williams, Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson, Stewart prevailed with 44 percent of the vote.

Have you watched his interviews of politicians, business people, etc? Are you not capable of gaining any information from those interviews?
