Jon Stewart Implores the Media to Stop Whining About that Asshole Donald Trump
Jon Stewart returned to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, as it appears now that Stewart will be to Colbert what Lewis Black was to Jon Stewart: A guy who shows up every couple of weeks to rail on a particular topic. I’m OK with that. I’m sure Stewart’s periodic visits have helped Colbert overtake the falling Fallon. Last night, that topic was Trump’s recent “break-up” with the media, a reference to the White House’s decision not to invite several major news outlets to a press briefing last week.
In the segment, Jon Stewart suggested that the media use this break-up as an opportunity for self-reflection, that maybe they should take up a hobby, like journalism!
It’s a ten-minute segment, but if you’re short on time, the first three minutes are Stewart/Colbert schtick, and the next three minutes are news clips of Donald Trump saying “believe me,” etc., so jump to the 7:00 mark to get to the point of Stewart’s visit.
Well said, but not entirely fair. I mean, I live in a news media bubble right now, surrounded by the Times, Post, Politico, Katy Tur, Rachel Maddow, and Jake Tapper, and they’re largely doing a great job of “journalism,” but there’s always room for improvement in the case of others, I suppose. He’s right about Breitbart, though: They do do anal.
