I blame Jon Stewart

He was the much needed voice that was loud, reached wide and could call out all the media hypocrisy. The fact that he left before the elections is unforgivable, and I blame him (in a very loving way, I love him)

1. Things are getting weird on DU.

I wonder if I am the only one who thinks this way.

2. I miss him A LOT

Hands down the smartest and toughest media person, it was not remotely close.

Maher has his toughness and is smart, but gets tripped up on his ego. As brilliant as js was, he was also very self aware and humble.

5. He has created a desire for liberal, thoughtful, truthful, political commentary

all throughout the networks and cable channels, and the next day on the Internet. What exactly does a guy have to do to get some credit here?

6. I know this OP was just making a joke-but in all seriousness, I would never blame JS for what has

turned into the craziest, nastiest POS political season in our lifetime. I work with a woman who wears a Trump T shirt at least twice a week and I can guarantee you she never would have listened to Jon Stewart. Remember when he was on Crossfire and gave the biggest smackdown to Scarborough and Begala? At least Begala shut up and took his medicine, but ol Joe just dug in his heels and didn't learn a thing.

8. My first thought

When Trump makes a ass of himself is, what would John have to say about this

10. I'l have to be careful here..

I love JS. I watched and recorded him every day. I give him great credit for calling out Hannity, the BS mountain (fox), CNN, MSNBC etc and make them look ridiculous every time. I just miss him so much, and wish he was on now to take on the extremely biased media now. No one else is as influential or sharp to do that. Maher is okay, but not to the level of JS.

What's getting odd or weird? I clearly mentioned I love JS. I'm new here, but this place seems to carry a lot of baggage.

13. Stewart did come back

to make what many might call a special "emergency" appearance on the Late Show.

14. I can see JS making another visit or two to the Late Show .

If I remember correctly Late Show is going to have live show after the debates this fall .

Larry Wilmore was on Late Show couple nights ago .

16. I don't blame him at all

 

Or any member of the media

Anything that is happening right now in politics is because of the candidates. It's his or hers fault, at all levels. They only have themselves to blame, be it Rs, Ds, Is, or whatever.
