Jon Stewart on ‘Duck Dynasty’: Phil Robertson Has Right to Say Ignorant S–t on TV (Video)

Jon Stewart weighed in on the controversy currently roiling the world of reality TV on Thursday, and his position on “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s suspension for anti-gay remarks put him in strange company. “The Daily Show” host admitted that he believed Robertson had a right to his opinions, even though he personally didn’t agree with them. That was roughly the position of most of Fox News’ stable of anchors, who declared that Robertson’s comments that homosexuality is analogous to bestiality had put him in host water with the “word police.” “I too have a problem with the word police,” Stewart joked. “It is by far the worst ‘Law & Order’ spinoff.”  Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/jon-stewart-duck-dynasty-phil-robertson-right-say-ignorent-s-t-tv-video/

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.

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

Things are looking bleak for President Barack Obama.
