Jon Stewart Slams Fox News For Giving $1 Million to the Republican Party (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 19th 2010 1:36AM
Jon Stewart Attacks Fox News ... For Giving $1 Million to the Republican PartyIt's political scandal time on 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). For some time now, Fox News has been attacking Democrats about political donations and secret fund-raising schemes. But two days ago, a report came out that News Corp. -- the parent company that owns Fox News -- has donated $1 million to the Republican Governors Association. Uh-oh! Blatant hypocrisy alert!

Now, Jon Stewart pounces. He does a parody of one of Glenn Beck's complicated chalkboard talks. But in this case, the illustration is fairly simple. And here's how it goes:

News Corp. ►$1 millionRepublicans.

...Yeah, not too complicated, right? Stewart also points out that maybe the Republicans should be giving money to Fox News, instead of vice-versa -- since he considers Fox News to be nothing more than a propaganda arm of the GOP.

What do you guys think? Is it wrong for a "Fair and Balanced" news organization to be giving money directly to one political party?

RICK- I SAW YOUR HARSH COMMENTS, AND YOU HAVE GOT TO BE A REPUBLICAN "AUTHORITARIAN" THAT'S A MISGUIDED, MEAN-SPIRITED,ANTI-DEMOCRATIC,ANTI-EQUALITY, AND HIGHLY PREJUDICE FOLLOWER OF THE REPUBLICAN PHILOSOPHY. THAT'S WHY THE REPUBLICANS LOST THE LAST ELECTION, AND WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE CONFIDENCE FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AS WELL AS LOSING ELECTIONS. MAYBE YOUR LISTENING TO MUCH TO LIMBAUGH, BECK, O REILLY, AND PALIN, ALL OF WHICH ARE HIGHLY PAID FOR THEIR DISGRACEFUL RHETORIC. THOSE PEOPLE WILL SAY ANYTHING FOR THE RIGHT PRICE.

SALLY- YOU ARE SO RIGHT. I COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT ANY BETTER. MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY. I AGREE THAT THEY ARE EVIL, AS WELL AS MEAN-SPIRITED, ANTI-EQUALITY, HIGHLY PREJUDICED, AND ENEMIES OF FREEDOM. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE SOUGHT TO RESHAPE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT BEST SUITS THEM. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, IS THE PARTY THAT REPRESENTS THE COMMON MAN. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, AS WELL AS BEING ALL THOSE THINGS, THEY ARE THE PARTY OF SPECIAL INTEREST. KEEP THE REPUBS OUT. MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT AGAIN.

Judy: you sound like one who just popped out of the Fucking Idiot mold. You give it away by using the phrase "liberal extremist" (which you can't even spell correctly). You're no better than a fucking parrot who's only been able to discern that "liberal" is an insulting term used for anyone who goes against the grain, anyone who questions the status quo, anyone who refuses to be a fucking sheep and a moral coward. You're probably Jewish, too, but that's another matter. God Bless America, indeed, because God is the only entity that could possibly save the U.S.'s sorry fat fucking ass. The "hope/change gimmick," as you phrased it, is not the most brilliant campaign slogan, but in your condescension of it--calling it a gimmick--you suggest that no change, the maintenance of the status quo, would have been preferable. Congratulations. You reveal yourself to be the typical United Statesian: a semi-literate, ignorant, narrow-minded Philistine reactionary who would rather bust open a bag of fried pork rinds and jerk off to "Dancing With the Stars" than read up on U.S. history, or read anything, for that matter, beyond the backs of cereal boxes, to try to gain a better understanding of the world you live in. If it is left to the sheeple of the U.S. to regenerate the country towards a more equitable and just society, only one certain conclusion can be drawn: the U.S. is completely FUCKED! At least Barak Obama knows how to read.

Give me a break--it's a comedy show with some spattering of truth thrown in. I have to ask all of you with negative comments--why are you even watching the Jon Stewart Show?

Hmmm. So every time your parents give money to an organization, it must be said that you support that organization as well?

Hey Stewart, Iran called! If you miss another Arabic class, you'll have to bring a note from your Imam.

Rick: anyone whose opinions differ even one iota from yours are unquestionably monstrous aberrations of nature. And again, like at least one other fucking moron who's posted here, you have to rely on the use of the word "liberal" in a disparaging way, because you're too much of a fucking hopeless moron to come up with anything else. "The stupidest people on earth"? Keep on suckin' corporate cock, pal; you're bound to go far.

Funny, Jon Stewart donated a total of $1000 to Anthony Wiener, Democrat...that's everyone's right, including New Corp. George Soros has donated over $3,000,000 to the Democratic Party and special interests (liberal causes). Don't like it, change the law. Libs always hate when their accusations are thrown back in their faces.

FOX NEWS HAS MY VOTE AS THE MOST PREJUDICE AND ONE-SIDED, BIASED NEWS CHANNEL IN THE WORLD. RUN BY REPUBLICANS, AND FINANCING THE REPUB PARTY, I DON'T THRUST ANY INFORMATION FROM FOX NEWS. THEY ARE VERY UNFAIR IN THEIR REPORTING, AND MEAN-SPIRITED AGAINST ANYONE WHO DOESN'T CALL THEMSELVES CONSERVATIVES. PEOPLE SUCH AS LIMBAUGH, GLENN BECK, SARAH PALIN, ANN COULTER, O'REILLY, ALL WHO ARE MAKING MILLIONS SPREADING THEIR REPUB PROPAGANDA. THEY HAVE GUTS CALLING THEMSELVES PATRIOTS, I SAY, THEY ARE ANTI-DEMOCRATIC, ANTI-EQUALITY, HIGHLY PREDUJICE, AND MEAN SPIRITED, AND CERTAINLY POWER HUNGY. ANYTHING THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY, INCLUDING FOX NEWS, IS INFORMATION THAT MUST BE IGNORED.
