Jon Stewart on Johnson & Johnson Scandal: You Can’t Even Do That in ‘Grand Theft Auto’ (Video)

Jon Stewart obliterated the corporation loophole on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” where huge institutions pay severe sums of settlement money, but avoid admitting wrongdoing, and no decision makers go to jail. In the most recent egregious example, healthcare manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay $2 billion to settle civil and criminal allegations against its wrongdoing. To which Stewart quipped, “I expect this from you, Johnson. But not you , Johnson.”   Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/daily-show-jon-stewart-johnson-grand-theft-auto

Jon Stewart on Cocaine Congressman: Trey Radel Doesn’t Understand Rap (Video)

Jon Stewart says we should have seen the signs that Rep. Trey Radel, who pleaded guilty to cocaine possession this week, had a problem. First, the Florida Republican admitted that his favorite vacation spot is Cartagena, Colombia.

Jon Stewart on Healthcare.Gov: Stop the Hurricane Katrina Comparisons (Video)

Things are looking bleak for President Barack Obama.

Jon Stewart: Toronto Crack Mayor Denies Cunnilingus Allegations (Video)

Rob Ford, better known as the crack-smoking mayor of Toronto, admitted this week that he has bought illegal drugs while in office, but insists that there are some lines that he refuses to cross. As Jon Stewart noted on Thursday’s edition of “The Daily Show,” the pride of Canada steadfastly denies that he told a staffer that he ”wanted to eat her p—y” by noting that he was happily married and had more than enough to eat at home. “‘Oh that lady said I wanted to eat her p—y, I have an all you can eat p—y buffet at home,’” Stewart said while channeling the well sated mayor. “‘In fact the only thing that gets me through the ridiculous amount of non-stop cunnilingus I have to perform is the sweet relief of crack.’”  Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/jon-stewart-toronto-crack-mayor-denies-cunnilingus-allegations-video/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=jon-stewart-toronto-crack-mayor-denies-cunnilingus-allegations-video

John Oliver earns HBO comedy talk show after 'The Daily Show' gig

John Oliver's stint on "The Daily Show" caught the attention of HBO and earned him a similar show for that network. It was announced today that Oliver will be the host of a new "topical comedy series" slated to launch Sunday nights in 2014. "We weren't otherwise searching for another weekly talk show, but when we saw John Oliver handling host duties on 'The Daily Show,' we knew that his singular perspective and distinct voice belonged on HBO," says president of HBO Programming Michael Lombardo. "We are extremely excited that John has agreed to make HBO his home." Oliver took over from Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show" so that the show's host could have time off to direct his first movie, "Rosewater." Oliver handled the show from June 10 and hosted eight weeks of new episodes. The general consensus was that he did a great job, so it's exciting that he'll get his own... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/john-oliver-earns-hbo-comedy-talk-show-after-the-daily-show-gig.html

Jon Stewart to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford: ‘Please Go to Rehab’ (Video)

Jon Stewart wants crack smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to drop the pipe and get some help. “Mayor Ford’s a lot of fun to ridicule, but I’m guessing not a lot of fun to eulogize,” Stewart said on Tuesday’s edition of “The Daily Show.” “And that’s where this thing is headed. Now, even though I will lose precious material, please go to rehab.” The Comedy Central star’s views are in contrast to the Canadian city where Ford’s approval ratings actually rose after he admitted that he had  had tried crack cocaine, “probably in one of my drunken stupors.”  Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/jon-stewart-toronto-mayor-rob-ford-please-go-rehab-video/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=jon-stewart-toronto-mayor-rob-ford-please-go-rehab-video

Jon Stewart Says Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Alleged Crack Habbit Will End in Fellatio (Video)

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is accused of being caught with his mouth at the receiving end of the crack pipe in a video tape obtained by Canadian police. On Monday’s edition of “The Daily Show,” host Jon Stewart noted that Ford was guilty of “exhibiting the type of poor judgment you often associate with smoking crack.” For his part, Ford is denying that he is a drug addict and has vowed to run for re-election. If he decides to throw his hat in the ring again, he’ll have some explaining to do, because the man in the video believed to be Ford uses racist and homophobic language while, apparently, smoking crack.  Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/jon-stewart-says-toronto-mayor-rob-ford-alleged-crack-habbit-will-end-fellatio-video/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=jon-stewart-says-toronto-mayor-rob-ford-alleged-crack-habbit-will-end-fellatio-video
