Keith seems to be pissed that Stewart put him in the same category as people on Fox. Keith no likey.
This is interesting...the people I know that were salivating over the rally are also people who are glued to MSNBC for Keith and Rachel and Lawrence's shows every night. I wonder how they feel about this...
Keith Olbermann: Jon Stewart Jumped The Shark At Rally
I must admit that I didn't watch enough of the rally to decide if this is true or not. What do you think?
Oh, yeah, Cable news is really bad. Oh, us? No, we are good, it's Fox and CNN that are bad
People are finally interested in politics and Stewart wants a return to what, when people generally weren't interested in politics? Sounds like complacency to me.
I don't think they are all that funny, and frankly I think Stewart is a bit of a hypocrite for not caring when people called Bush a fascist but throwing a big rally because people are calling Obama a fascist.
American politics is supposed to be loud and vicious, that's just part of the culture. It's a myth that sanity was ever part of the process.
Implying there is any equivalence between Fox News and MSNBC is bizarre. An ultra conservative billionaire hired a Nixon media political operative to start a "news" network to distribute his inflammatory propaganda versus a cable news channel which progressive leaning began only by one of its commentator's voiced opposition to the Iraq War.
The real joke is Jon Stewart.
Not really...Stewart is against calling anyone Hitler simply because you disagree with him/her. Stewart isn't trying to get people out of politics, he is trying to get people to sanely approach politics, and trying to make them understand the realities of politics.
If you watch his show, he beats on everyone who spouts extremist crap, and everyone who is a fearmongerer or something like that.
In all, Stewart is probably the best person to go to for an accurate representation of the news, plus his show is pretty funny.
Where is your argument for this? Olbermann, as pompous as he is, made a good point. If you quiet down the other side is just going to be louder.
