In a post rightly dismissing an article at Pop Matters comparing Michael Moore and Jon Stewart (and applauding the former while denouncing the latter), Erik Loomis made this observation: If we are leaving an age where young people are super ironic and unable to commit to a cause, that’s probably…

The incoherent critiques of Jon Stewart
