You know how Fox News yells “class warfare” the moment someone talks about income disparity? Apparently, it’s OK to complain about someone else’s wealth when it’s Jon Stewart earning the big bucks. Fox & Friends, along with the Daily Caller’s Jamie Weinstein, thought it was big proof of Stewart’s hypocrisy to sneer about Stewart’s earnings and the news that he’s supposedly “on track” to being worth more than Mitt Romney. Of course, they missed Stewart’s main point, which is not that Romney is rich, per se, but that his favor-the-wealthy policies are self-serving while Stewart supports ones that are not.
Apparently, the curvy couch crew thinks that if Stewart doesn’t distribute his income more, he’s a hypocrite. But by that token, shouldn’t someone like, say, Brian Kilmeade have joined the military and fought in the wars he cheerleads?
Romney reminds me of the hand-puppets on Mr.Rogers Neighborhood. When I was young, they used to scare the hell out of me.
Romney is one of those scary puppets. He might be a good guy behind closed doors, but as a politician, he is just plain scary, and it is horrifying if he were to win.
Romney is the puppet that will bring in an age of Corporate Fascism. Maybe even corporate world domination on a scale none of us can imagine.
The thing is, with the citizens united case, and with all the money in politics from lobbyists and corporations wanting to excuse themselves from any regulation, bribery is now legal and accepted in a government that is supposed to represent WE THE PEOPLE. We the people now includes the Corporations who are also now citizensk, thank you SCOTUS). so “WE THE PEOPLE” should read “WE THE CORPORATE ENTITIES, KNOWN AS CORPORATIONS, OR CITIZENS, NOW HAVE CONTROL OVER THOSE, THE PEOPLE, WHO RESIGNED IN WHAT WAS ONCE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BUT IS NOW PROUDLY CALLED THE UNITED CORPORATIONS OF AMERICA…..and soon THE WORLD.” pro-corporate legislation is already in place…hoe much more can we take until it is too late? They will say that Socialism is bad, and that is because they would hate to see a government that might enhance the well-being of the middle class as well as the country as a whole in favor of a governernment in favor of rich people and big corporations. Just wait until you see how bad Corporate Fascism can be to one’s freedom.
Thank FOX that the United Corporations of America have planted the seeds of the United Corporate Fascist States of America.

welcome to American Crony Capitalism, version 2.0.
Upgrade now or be obselete.
All he’s shown us is that he doesn’t watch TDS, he just reads smear articles about them on Newsbusters, a site that’s infamous for:
A) Thinking the Daily Show is a real news show, not a spoof.
B) Not realizing that they take their A-Game jokes out there. If it doesn’t make the cut, it’s options are “later” or “never.” The end.
Aside of The Daily Show being on vacation, I don’t think Stewart would bother with this off topic / off current news when there are bigger fish to fry in the Mittens barrel.
Also, my guess is that there’s a bit more to this than meets the eye with regards to their going after Stewart. Let’s not forget that Daily Caller guy works for widdle Tucker Carlson who got his bow-tied ass handed to him by Stewart a few years ago. It was a monumental embarrassment for Carlson and most likely played a part into why Carlson now running a website instead of hosting a teevee show. Still stings, eh, Tucker?
Btw, Stewart is actually working and putting in the hours. What does Romney atually do to earn $57K a day? Perhaps they pay him that for running for President (again)? Oh wait, didn’t Romney claim to the folks that he was actually unemployed? Unemployed but getting $57K a day? Bwaaah!
One thing that I found rather peculiar is that the Stewart video they played was originally aired way back on Jan. 24, 2012. Yet they bring it up now just as Stewart is taking a 2 week vacation and can’t take them on until July 16th when he’s back? What a bunch of lame-ass cowards they’ve got over there at FOX (and the Daily Caller). LOL!
Jon Stewart is THE MAN on lying to America about immigration!
I seriously despise Fox News. This isn’t worth reporting, but it was just a way to attack someone who is a decent humanitarian. I can’t wait for Stewart’s rebuttal.
there is no way Fox wins this debate.
Once again Fox is making a big mistake picking another fight with a brilliant comedian like Jon Stewart. You would think by now theyâve learned not to touch that hot stove anymore, since every time they have done so in the past theyâve gotten burned, badly.
Before Stewart explains exactly what’s wrong with that logic, let’s take a shot at it.
(reviews first paragraph)… nope, if that doesn’t expain itself, there’s no hope for you.
