I know he apologized but the tone of his voice and what he said clearly stated different things

He was just doing a bad Jon Stewart impression (like Stewart's slightly better impression of him.)

Yeah, that's how I read it.  He was attempting to be funny and take it on the chin, but when it came to owning it he said 'Sorry, Jon's Right.'

I personally find Olbermann to be a Class Act all the way.  I'd gladly have a beer with him.

Jon is also a huge mancrush of mine.

The show last night was epic. Oberman was also bringing the commonsense.

I confess that I don't really like Olbermann although I appreciate his efforts.

I just don't like his "angry man" pose although it seems to be genuine.

I have no idea how any American could suffer through the last 10 years and not be angry.


But that's all I'm going to say about that.

The Daily Show is awesome.

That response by Olbermann was the best we could hope for, and I'm glad he gave it. Awesome. Showing the clip on his own show in its entirety and being the bulk of the segment drove home that Jon was right, and I have mad props for Keith now.

That interview was ok, especially when the body language specialist made a point of telling O'reilly that Stewart wasn't at all intimidated by him. You could kind of see the annoyance on his face before he covered it up. However, the followup with Glenn Beck needs to be highlighted by Stewart on his show. O'reilly was all buddy buddy when Stewart was there. When he and Glenn Beck were talking it was back to "Stewart's just another liberal pinhead. Blahblahblah."

Watching the whole interview, Stewart would have absolutely humiliated him if there'd been an audience. O'Reilly spent most of the time springing things on him and getting a joke followed by a reasoned, nuanced response while O'Reilly just kept making remarks about pinheads and other crap and then moving on.

I'll bet O'Reilly was trying to bait Stewart into making some sneering remark about O'Reilly's geriatric audience. He could have used that to fire up the seniors for weeks afterwards.

Why is it whenever I see these shows, the questions they ask make it sound like they want the interviewee to give the worst possible answer just so they can hear it come from their mouths? The old "Well, if you put it that way, sure." response that might imply the person of note is a baby fucker or likes to snort cocaine distilled from opium grown in the closet where he hides the dead bodies from his career as a gigolo for mafia hitmen.

I didn't even make it that far. Once I heard what emphasis and inflection O'Reilly was putting on his opening speech, I vomited.

Introducing a pre-recorded segment... that happens a lot on his show, doesn't it? Unlike the Daily Show where you get this impression the entire show is running smoothly from start to finish with very little in the way of editing (It's there, but done masterfully).

Oh, I watched it. He doesn't hate the president, he just thinks he is a foreign born Muslim Nazi that hates white people and is out to destroy the American way of life through socialism and fascism (as they are the same you know) using such underhanded tactics as including republican initiatives in legislation. Oh, and hes hes black.

That was the one time in the interview that Stewart seemed even remotely rattled and I think it was because he was mentally going "did this guy just say Glenn Beck was an everyman? Really?"

Too many elitists decrying elitists and trying to not appear elitist to avoid the stigma against elitists.

Jon Stewart laid some blows into Newt Gingrich, I just wish I could see the full unedited interview over here.

Newt had one good point, in that it's okay to spend a ton of money if you have it. It stimulates the economy, and Obama probably shouldn't dig so much into Vegas as a "frivilous spending" thing.

That said, if the GOP is going to have summits in Hawaii, they probably should lay off Obama for doing the same fucking thing.

He looked visibly uncomfortable when put on the spot about hypocrisy, he was the same when Jon mentioned the fact that the Bush administration had tried over 500 terrorists in the US without issue.

But this is what Jon Stewart does best, he doesn't pander to anyone.

Yeah, Stewart on O'Reilly was annoying to watch just because O'Reilly kept ending a series of questions with some hugely inflammatory statement said as if it was the simplest of facts that everyone should agree on and then just moving straight on. A classic 'get the last word in' type thing, and he kept doing it to the point that Stewart went, "Really? Am I meant to just let that go?" at which point O'Reilly ignored him and asked the next question on the list. Stewart sometimes says the same kind of thing with guests but has the decency to make it a joke and will let them respond.

Also just catching up on Colbert and his bit on Sarah Palin and the whole Emmanuel calling people fucking retards thing. Leap to her defence to call her a fucking retard was a great line and I won't bother saying anymore cause I don't know how much it'll derail this into politics rather great television moments.

The title under his name.


Its as if that entire segment where O'riley was yelling that beck is not news, and that they make a clear distinction about what is news and what is an opinion show, never happened.

Stewart did really well, but he did come off as the short man, much more timid, and it was kinda neat to watch him deliver punchline with me waiting for the laughtrack.  Though sometimes the film crew would just lol in place of it.

Now, I only like Stephen Colbert about a third as much as i like Jon Stewart, but his interview on Bill O'Relly's show was really entertaining to watch, mostly because you can visually see how annoyed O'Reilly is with him.
