    Only idiots think that the news on Comedy Central is real.

    You mean the same idiots that think Hannity, Glenn Beck, Oreilly, and Fox and Friends is real news?

    “Because he’s an atheist, he’ll do anything fearing no consequences to pay at the end.”

    One of the dumbest comments ever. I love how you throw the atheist thing out there because you want to condemn them. I know many more worst hypocritical Christians than atheists.

  • Keith Barbaro

    @Ralph It’s the world we live in in. People see Stewart, Colbert, and even Maher as the most visible liberal voices in America today. People do go to them for news and talking points against the GOP.

    I attended Stewart’s stage show in Clearwater and he sold out two shows. Do you know how he marketed the tour? His promoter bought tons of ads on WFLA. His appeal is to political junkies, not people looking for a laugh.

    Arguing whether or not Comedy Central is “real” is like arguing whether wrestling is real or not. It’s a major vehicle for the Democrats. It’s become what Fox News is for the GOP.

    Was it “real” when Obama appeared on Stewart just before the election?

  • Skip

    usa, keep up the cheer leading for msnbeciles. When they are at the bottom of the dung heap, there is only one direction to go.

  • Matthew

    I’d be very surprised if Daily Show viewers are less informed than viewers (especially of the opinion shows) of Fox and MSNBC. Just because it’s on a comedy network, and has a comedic slant, that doesn’t mean it’s ‘not real news;’ it was fake news when Craig Kilborn was the host, but now the emphasis is more comedic coverage of real events, as well as critique of the news media.

  • Ratboy

    So the highly intelligent left wing loons are trying to equate Boehner making a comment in the hall to Reid with the VPof the United States dropping the F bomb on world wide TV and media AND a campaign ad for the democratic canditate oh by the way the incumbant candidate with a Hollywood star dropping the F bomb!
    CAN’T FIX STUPID

  • ERVIN COHEN

    OBAMA SAID NO TAXES ON MIDDLE CLASS AND HE RAISED TAXES ON MIDDLE CLASS!
    LIAR! EVERY WORD HE SAYS IS A FING LIE! YOU LIBS AND DEMOS CAN CONTINUE
    TO MAKE EXCUSES AND PRETEND THIS GUY ISN’S A LYING SOCIALIST PIG! THE
    MIDDLE CLASS WILL SUFFER NOW SO WILL SMALL BUSINESS AND EVERYBODY EXCEPT
    THE BIG RICH LIBERALS AND DEMOCRATS!

    CAN’T FIX STUPID

    OMG my brain hurts! No punctuation at all. But hey, I guess it’s the Ratboy way to think it’s worse to say the F word under your breath in no demeaning than it is when a politician says the F word to another politician in a demeaning hateful way….”CAN’T FIX STUPID!!!”

  • Matthew

    Agreed, it is indeed stupid to equate these things; a sitting Speaker of the House, telling a sitting Senate Majority leader to go F— himself is far worse than AN ACTOR dropping an F-bomb in an Internet video that wasn’t even sponsored by a major party candidate or SuperPAC. agreed agreed agreed

  • Mark

    In the case of is the Daily Show or Bill Maher real news or not I would side with no they aren’t. They are entertainment shows with political slants(much like most the stuff we see on FOX news and MSNBC, only difference is Stewart and Maher are more open to admit what they are instead of acting like they somehow news)

  • usa8888

    Hey Skip–the problem with your remarks is that they (MSNBC) are BEATING Fox. That’s why Rupert is worried. obviously, you are not in the broadcasting business……………

  • usa8888

    Ervin–you sound like you are still stinging from the tremendous loss in the election last month. Obviously, Obama did NOT raise taxes on the middle class–he has the middle class’s interests uppermost in mind. The GOP are out to destroy not only the middle class but the whole country, too.

  • Bobbyv

    Just about everyone is paying more taxes now, we should be clear on that

  • cathy

    Boehner told Reid to go F*** himself? It’s about time!!! Boehner knows this deal is bad for the country. Sometimes passion gets the best of you. Increase spending and a tax increase on $450,000, well we can all see what Obama’s idea of fair is. Take from the rich and give stimulus money to his rich friends.

  • usa8888

    Cathy–everyone knows the deal is good for the country, except the soon to be extinct t-bags. Boehner and the moderate Repubs can’t control these right wing radicals who are trying to destry our country. But the bags are thankfully going the way of dinosaurs–correction: they ARE dinosaurs!!!!!!!!!!!
    The t-bags want to drastically cut spending and send the economy into depression–this is the classic strategy of an abjectly uneducated person–like most of the bags……

  • usa8888

    Hey–did you see that Fox, the right wing GOP propagnada arm, is bad-mouthing the $12.1 B tax credit for the wind turbine industry. Typical of Fox, a backward thinking organization supporting the t-bag lunatic right. They don’t realize that you have to support new energy industries just like the government supported the “new” railroad industry in the mid-1800′s.

  • usa8888

    Hey–did you see the Dow and NASDAQ today???? Just keep those bags away from governing and we will be fine. Good luck to Boehner as he battles Cantor and the lunatic right………….

  • usa8888

    Hey–where all you right wingers go??? Come back to us, Bubbas!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 1966

    what’s wrong with you nancy?

  • cathy

    USA8888 said “Costco is the most successful retailer in the world and growing by leaps and bounds because it gives its customers great value and high quality and its employees a good salary. Other companies would love to be Costco……” Well, I have proof that this is a lie….
    2011 Global 500 companies.
    rank Company rev (millions) profit (millions)
    3 Wal-Mart Stores 446,950 15,699
    75 Kroger 90,374 602
    78 Costco Wholesale 88,915 1,462

    2012 Top 100 Retailers
    Rank Company USA Sales($000) World Sales($000) USA % of Ww Sales growth
    1 Wal-Mart $316,083,000 $453,976,000 69.6% 2.6%
    2 Kroger $90,491,000 $90,491,000 100.0% 9.1%
    3 Target $68,466,000 $68,466,000 100.0% 4.1%
    4 Walgreen $66,330,000 $68,233,000 97.2% 8.3%
    5 Costco $64,221,000 $89,054,000 72.1% 8.9%

    WALMART is the most successful retailer in the world. It’s 5 times the size of Costco. That’s a lot of leaping and bouncing to do. Kroger is growing more and it’s US only.

    Costco pays their workers more because you have to have at least three years of retail experience to get a job. Only 45% of new hires make it passed the 90 day training period. The average Costco employee has 6 years of retail experience.

    Most people who shop at Warehouse Stores like Costco and Sam’s Club are ‘lazy deal’ shoppers. If you are a “true” value shopper you shop sales at traditional retailers and stock-up.

    —————————
    Walmart makes it’s money by screwing over the public indirectly. Alot of Walmart employees are paid so bad they have to take government subsidies to get out of poverty. It’s great the Waltons makes billions of dollars each but they do it on the backs of treating employees like crap. It’s companies like Walmart make me believe we really need to raise the minimum wage, else they will continue squeezing out every penny they can while making the tax payers foot the bill for how little they pay to their employees.

    I personally avoid shopping at Walmart because I feel they are a cancer on society(ie if all employees waged working practices like Walmart we would go back to the 1800s when people were working 70 hour weeks barely getting by)
