Jon Stewart speaks to CNN (screen grab)

In a recent interview, CNN host Fareed Zakaria made the mistake of trying to corner The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart into praising his network.

“When world historical events like the Green movement, the Arab Spring are happening, you turn on CNN and watch these brave correspondents?” Zakaria asked Stewart in an interview that aired on Sunday.

“Here’s what I do,” Stewart replied. “I set a Google alert for Blitzer. And then, I just wait. ‘We have a CNN exclusive tonight. The Empire State Building is blue.'”

“During the Green Revolution, you watched CNN and appreciated the brave reporting,” Zakaria insisted.

“Let me tell you something,” Stewart said. “The reason why I make fun of certain aspects of CNN is to be inspired by the brave reporting, is to want more. And so, that’s all it is.”

“You want more CNN?” Zakaria pressed.

“I want more of good CNN,” Stewart explained. “CNN is very similar to the doll Chucky. Sometimes it’s good Chucky, but you really got to watch out for bad Chucky.”

John Oliver explains how Dems can bring the pain to Mitch McConnell — even if he wins re-election

Published

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver returned to his Sunday show, fresh off of an Emmy win, to explain how the United States got so incredibly f*cked up.

Oliver began by remembering Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and noting that her seat will be taken over by a far-right conservative justice who will unmake healthcare, reproductive freedom, LGBTQ rights and more things Americans have indicated they want.

He played a clip of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) claiming that America is a "center-right" country, which Oliver called outright "bullsh*t." Not only do Americans overwhelming support reproductive freedom, they also support LGBTQ equality. At the same time, Americans also believe, overwhelmingly, that President Donald Trump shouldn't be allowed to appoint the next justice.

Former Army prosecutor explains why Trump will ‘get laughed out of court’ if he tries to steal the election

Published

Democrats are still panicking about the plots that President Donald Trump and the Republican Party seem to be cooking up to circumvent the people's vote in November.

Last week's shocking piece in The Atlantic detailed how electors in Pennsylvania could be manipulated to deliver Trump the vote despite ballots to the contrary. After President George W. Bush's campaign convincing the Supreme Court to stop Florida from counting the 2000 election ballots, there is a fear that Trump too could manipulate the courts to get his Supreme Court justices to deliver him a win.

Trump biographer explains why there was no mention of Russia or Michael Cohen in Trump tax bombshell

Published

Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston has literally written the book on President Donald Trump and his finances. Trump's supporters have already gone after the report saying that it vindicated the president because there was no mention of Michael Cohen or Russia anywhere in the New York Times bombshell report.

Breitbart editor-at-large Joel Pollak celebrated the news and claimed, without evidence, that the taxes must have come illegally from the IRS. The personal tax returns did show, however, that Trump made an absurdly large amount of money from handling the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.
