Reasons why I hate John Stewart:

He feels so smug when he brings right wing guests and uses his louder more annoying voice, and audience to control the conversation. I just watched an interview with Blago the other day and the guy couldn't get a word in edgewise.

Basically thats all I have for right now because the only reason I ever watch his stupid show is when I'm playing World of Warcraft and Tosh.0 ends while i'm in a raid.

I saw this on Australian TV and it made me laugh at Fox NEW's ignorance (owned by an Australian btw).

Also the FOX reporter they showed in the same episode that while live on air googled for what 'ignoramous(sp?)' meant and then came to the conclusion it meant "an ignorant lawyer".

Ratings have nothing to do with truth.

I don't really care how anyone feels about Stewart personally.

Those that continue supporting Fox......Is he wrong?

Everyday, we sit on ats screaming to deny ignorance, is Jon Stewart wrong?
And can you honestly still watch Fox, for anything other than purely entertainment?

No, but they paid for the poll and if they didn't like the results they just question a different group of people 'till they can get more people to say they watch FOX over any other news station.

Hey Loutty, I too watched that and it is my opinion that Stewart was preventing Blago from wiggling his way out of truth. Blago is crafty in defending himself, attempting a tactic to say everything but the point by circumventing the specific contention.
That was a rare obstructive effort by Stewart, for I have watched him for years and he should have the term "fair and balanced,"particularly when it comes to interviews. He is as cordial,considerate and fair of an interviewer as they come, imo.

Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal is nicknamed the "Warren Buffet of the Gulf" and holds a wide array of investments in PUBLICLY TRADED companies like
investments in Citigroup, Carlyle Group (a company backed by an awful lot of bin Laden connected money), Coca-Cola, Pepsi Co Inc, McDonald`s Corp, Apple Computer Inc., Motorola, AOL Time Warner, Saks Inc., EuroDisney and Walt Disney Company, the Teledesic satellite venture. Blahh Blahh Blahh the list goes on

He has been a shareholder in Newscorp since 1997!!! In that year he also became the Second Largest shareholder in Apple.

He also donated $20 million to Obamas Alma Mater, Harvard, back in 2009 and he has been rumored to have funded Obama's Harvard years.

Obama's Harvard Years

Furthermore, the Alwaleed Foundation has set aside $100 million for its Islam-West dialogue project, which endowed the centers at Harvard and Georgetown.

Alwaleed gets around folks. If you want to poke fun at Fox News you have to poke fun at Apple and all of the others too!! Including Your President!!

Why? They aren't the topic. That's deflection. It's like saying, "Yeah, we know but we'll talk about something else though."

You're just denying the raw facts. Alwaleed is a shareholder in Newscorp. As are many other investors. Newscorp is a PUBLICLY traded company. Alwaleed has his money everywhere including the President's pocket.

To understand completely, you need to know all there is to know about this man and his interests.

Sadly, people just pick and choose info. that supports an agenda. In this case an agenda against Fox News. Present all of the Facts!!! and the story and hit attempt on Fox sort of loses its punch. Eh??

Just as many anti Fox threads as anti Obama threads. I wonder why.

Well I could start a topic stating that apples are good for you because look at all the sugar in Coke but that wouldn't fly either. That's what is presented here.

Alwaleed is all over the place.

In case you didn't read the first time

acmcu.georgetown.edu...

It is all relevant as to who he is and what his interests are.


edit to add:

Once again Alwaleed has been a leading shareholder in Newscorp since 1997!!!

This is not NEW news. His money is all over the place to the point that you would not know where he stands on anything other than to manipulate both sides to every argument or battle.

Perhaps the broadcasters should have mentioned just to simplify the lives of those who completely fail to understand what is happening.

Hello jibeho, while I don't totally disagree with you, the difference between Fox and the other's is that Fox comes out and criticizes those associated with Alawaleed as evil and anyone connected is guilty by association.
So Alawaleed is the second largest shareholder in Newscorp, guess who the first is?

Kingdom Holding, a Saudi investment firm.
www.kingdom.net...
Guess who is the chairman? Alawlaeed


Now it may be true that all news media is guilty of misperception and blame, but does it not make sense that the largest and most powerful(Newscorp) of these organizations are responsible for the most bs put out?
Here is a list of Newscorp co's:

Boy, there sure are a lot of "Fox's" in the Tv/Cable shows.
Now who has more power than this to effect the minds of the people?
Therefore, imo, the biggest co is responsible for putting out the most(quantity wise) garbage.
So no, objective analysis does not "decrease the punch," it increases it.
At least that is how I see it.
And yes Alwaleed is all over the place, but he is invested in the 2nd most powerful media force on the planet, which puts him in a unique position of bias.
AND, he is the chairman of Kingdom Holding, the largest shareholder of Newscorp. Do I see a picture forming here? Yes
Does it put Fox news at a disadvantage when it comes to accountability? Yes
www.kingdom.net...

Edit To Add:
I think my point may have gotten scattered, so let me reiterate. Yes, all the media is responsible for putting out garbage, thus follows the logic that the "most powerful and watched" company is putting out the most garbage. So yes, Fox news is more responsible for misperception and sensationalism than all the others.
So the criticism is not "picking on," it is proportional.

I always found it bit sad and funny that the best news show about current events is a show that airs on a comedy channel. Weird that the best kind of humor comes from point out facts and truths that other ignore/hide.
for Jon & staff.

Your exactly right, but they didn't and that was Stewart's whole point. Instead they cast a nefarious / mysterious / vague image of him to incite fear and therefore, by association on the GZ mosque.

Fox NEWS NETWORK either didn't do the same research that Stewart did, a comedian on a COMEDY NETWORK, or they did and withheld that research to further an agenda. Either scenario doesn't paint a very good image for Fox. And you, yourself know how easy it was to find the truth by the research / info you provided.

That's the joke of it

Beck, O'Reilly and Hannity are the unholy trinity of disinformation.

Stewart just makes fun of them.

Stewart hurt your feelings? Get over it.

Thats kind of the whole point of what Stewart is doing, though.

They say that the mosque is linked to terror because of the connection to Alwaleed. If that is true, then shouldnt all of the other things he funds be ALSO linked to terror?
