Jon Stewart having too much fun

Written By: - Date published: 12:22 pm, November 10th, 2012 - 3 comments

Jon Stewart’s Daily Show on the 7th – the day after the American elections – is a classic. Stewart is having more fun than is seemly or decent!

Senator Alvin Greene?

Written By: - Date published: 9:12 am, June 16th, 2010 - 29 comments

Alvin Greene is an unemployed military veteran who received an involuntary discharge and is currently on felony pornography charges. He has a degree but seems a bit, um, challenged. He received 60% of the vote in the Democratic Primary for South Carolina senator, despite having no experience, no backing, and no campaign. No-one can explain it. See the Daily Show’s take:

Daily Show on lucky duckies

Written By: - Date published: 1:53 pm, May 25th, 2010 - 6 comments

Seeing as the theme of the day has been inequality and class war, this video from the Daily Show is very appropriate. Interesting to see that in the US the Right is running the same ‘lucky ducky‘ line about the poor who are supposedly getting it easy because their incomes are so low they don’t […]

Jon Stewart’s Glenn Beck parody

Written By: - Date published: 4:33 pm, December 2nd, 2009 - 2 comments

Caught this on The Nation. Brilliant. Jon Stewart has done it again, and this time he even brought out his acting chops. In what will probably become a historic Glenn Beck impression, Stewart uses Beck’s recent appendicitis operation to concoct a conspiracy theory of his own. Using a chalkboard, glasses, and a game of Operation […]

Jon Stewart looks at some recent clips from Fox News on the American presidential race. Just incredible.

They’ve just erected this billboard in Minneapolis-Saint Paul to welcome delegates to the Republican National Convention.

Scott McClellan on the Daily Show

Written By: - Date published: 11:19 am, June 4th, 2008 - 4 comments

Last night on the Daily Show Jon Stewart interviewed Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary who has come out and accused the Bush administration of a “culture of deception” and of maintaining a “permanent campaign approach” to governing rather than making the best choices. It’s a good interview that provides an interesting insight […]

Daily show interview: Blog Wars

Written By: - Date published: 2:04 pm, May 10th, 2008 - 15 comments

A great interview by Jon Stewart on political blogging. Well worth watching. The part about evolution of blogging in the US is particularly interesting. New Zealand obviously lags behind in some ways but, as is often the case in this small polity, things also have a tendency to move faster once they get going. I […]

Daily Show on the Pollies

Written By: - Date published: 12:01 pm, May 7th, 2008 - Comments Off on Daily Show on the Pollies

The Daily Show’s John Oliver goes behind the scenes at the Pollies, the US awards ceremony for political ad consultants. Hilarious. Watch the nominees tell Oliver how to destroy hope, make voters fear black people and hang your fragile ego on a yard sign. I’m sure our mate John Ansell would feel right at home. […]

Daily Show on financial news

Written By: - Date published: 3:00 pm, January 25th, 2008 - 13 comments

Jon Stewart had a good piece last night on why we shouldn’t just trust the economic and financial “experts”. People deserve better from the media than the dehumanising econo-speak about ‘soft labour markets’ and housing ‘corrections’ that dominates our Business pages, so it’s good to see Jon poking a bit of fun. Fox News also […]
