Jon Stewart - The Most Trusted Man in the US?


Recommended Posts

I saw an ad for the CBS Evening News the other day that included Walter Cronkite's image imposed behind Katie Couric's. I guess the network is trying to reclaim some reputation as the most trusted name in network news by reminding people that it was home to Uncle Waltie.

It's interesting to see the smirky-smirky type of pundits, like Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher, become discomfited about Stewart and his intentions. Bill Maher, who spent years and years enabling Republicans, playing the both sides are bad and I'm a libertarian song and dance, and helping to launch the careers of several conservative stars, smirkily tells everyone about how wrong Stewart was and how both sides aren't the same.

The whole sneery disdain type of persona that a lot of these names put out means that in their mind everyone does come across as the same. I think some of them now realize what this attitude has helped to do to our culture, and are pushing back, but it's a little late.

Stewart, like Craig Kilborn before him, started out very smirky on the Daily Show, but then over the years began to take it more seriously. It can be jarring, because you wait for the laugh and then sometimes you get this Paddy Chafesky routine. I think he sees himself as having a real message to deliver, whether he'll admit it or not.

    • That's heartbreaking to hear. Julie had a tough life, but battled to become a national icon. She always had the utmost respect for Corrie and for its fans. I can't ever imagine Corrie without thinking of her. I hope she will be well taken care of.
    • It’s not as orangy today compared to yesterday but the air quality is still terrible.  I don’t ever remember this happening where I live. It sucks. 
    • Going home Sunday night it was crazy to see the full moon all red/orange. 
    • All of NYC and much of the Northeast look like they’re under a sepia filter right now due to poor air quality (the result of smoke from wildfires in Canada). People are recommended to stay indoors:  
    • I'm curious too. I really enjoyed it, I thought the actress was great and so warm even being limited to only "eye" acting. And while not the best written scene it did attempt to dig into the psychological and push and pull of Willow's conflict accepting someone she doesn't like in Nina as her mother and also accepting that the woman who raised her was neither a good mother or a good person.  JorBot can't kiss to save her life. Watching Zeke and Jordan passionlessly smash faces at each other wasn't the sweltering button to end yesterday's show on that they might have thought it was.
