Jon Stewart Calls Out 'Nightly News' For Ignoring Report That NBC's Parent Company GE Didn't Pay U.S. Tax in 2010 (VIDEO)

On Friday, The New York Times reported that General Electric paid no U.S. federal income tax in 2010, despite earning $14.2 billion in profits. While the article got a ton of play across the media, Jon Stewart and 'The Daily Show's (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) crack team of video-watchers found that there was one particular media organization that completely ignored this stunning revelation on the day the news broke. And that would be NBC. Which is owned by ... GE. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/29/jon-stewart-calls-out-nightly-news-for-ignoring-report-that-nb/

Jon Stewart to Bret Baier: Much Like 'Three's Company,' Fox News' High Ratings Don't Equal Quality (VIDEO)

Bret Baier, the host of Fox New's six o'clock show 'Special Report,' stopped by 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11 PM ET on Comedy Central.) At the beginning of the interview Jon Stewart suggested to Baier that he was a "human shield" because he is the guy Fox News uses to argue that they have good journalists, not just partisan personalities. Baier rejected that characterization, and this prompted a long disagreement between them about the nature of Fox News. Toward the end of their debate they had this exchange, which summed up each of their positions: Read More... //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/25/jon-stewart-accuses-bret-baier-of-being-a-human-shield-for-fox/

Lewis Black Wants Donald Trump to Be Our 'Crazy Third World Dictator' (VIDEO)

Lewis Black is supporting Donald Trump in 2012. Why? Because he's sick of presidents. "Stupid presidents, smart presidents, white presidents, black presidents -- doesn't work!"

"What this country needs is a a crazy Third World dictator," Black explained. "And Donald Trump has what it takes to be that. He's already got a plane with his name on it, solid gold buildings, a harem ... " //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/23/lewis-black-wants-donald-trump-to-be-our-crazy-third-world-dict/

Jon Stewart Wonders Why the U.S. is Involved in a Third War (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) returned from a one-week hiatus just in time for Jon Stewart to comment on the military action the U.S. and its allies have embarked on in Libya. Stewart came out critical of "Operation Odyssey Dawn." "I don't want to be a pain in the ass, but don't we already have two wars?" Stewart pointed out. "You know wars aren't kids, where you don't have to pay attention to the youngest one because the older two will take care of it." And that wasn't even the only family-relations based metaphor Stewart had crafted for America's latest military front: //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/22/jon-stewart-wonders-why-the-u-s-is-involved-in-a-third-war-vid/

Larry King in talks to join 'Daily Show,' self-parody gods smile

If life just hasn't been the same for you since Larry King left CNN suspender-less and stuck with Piers Morgan, you may be in luck.After an initial report from the New York Post, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Comedy Central has spoken with King about coming on board "The Daily Show" as an occasional contributor -- à la Lewis Black or John Hodgman."The possibility has been discussed," claims a source. And though the phrase "in talks" has been thrown around, apparently there has only been one conversation between King and the network.The news is hard to digest upon first hearing... bit it sort of makes sense the more you think about it. King never said that he was "retiring" (so cryptic, so Regis!), and he does have a fondness for comedy. Shortly before leaving his old post at "Larry King Live," he announced he'd embark on a stand-up comedy tour in 2011.

Jon Stewart Explains When He Thinks Computers Will Be Like Humans (VIDEO)

Brian Christian, an author and expert on how computers and humans interact, was on 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), where he discussed with Jon Stewart how far along computers are in mimicking human characteristics. "Here's when I think computers will be human," Stewart proclaimed, during their discussion. "When they are walking down the street, and they trip, and they look up and go 'I meant to do that'." "When they evolve a sense of neurosis," Stewart continued. "When they walk up to Alex Trebek and go 'I wonder if he thinks I'm an a-hole?'" //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/09/jon-stewart-explains-when-he-thinks-computers-will-be-like-human/

Jon Stewart Praises BYU for Dropping Brandon Davies After he Violated Honor Code (VIDEO)

Brigham Young University, which has the third-ranked basketball team in the nation, suspended their second best player Brandon Davies for the rest of the season for violating the school's honor code by having premarital sex with his girlfriend. After Davies was suspended, the BYU basketball team was promptly blown away by an unranked opponent at home. But if it's any consolation, BYU has gained the respect of Jon Stewart, who named BYU in a 'Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) segment he called "Tales of Principled Behavior." //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/04/jon-stewart-praises-byu-for-dropping-brandon-davies-after-he-vio/

Jon Stewart Mocks Muammar Qaddafi's 'Existential' Attitude (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart continued his 'Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) comedic assault on Col. Muammar Qaddafi Wednesday, offering a funny rebuttal to a clip of the embattled Libyan dictator claiming that he is not in charge of Libya because no such position exists. "How can I step down, what from?" Qaddafi's English translator said in the clip. "I have no post to step down from. I don't have any position. I don't lead Libya. Libya does not have a leader or president or king. Libya is a state of the masses." "Whoa, that is some existential bulls--t," was what Stewart had to say about that. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/03/jon-stewart-mocks-muammar-qaddafis-existential-attitude-vide/

Jon Stewart Makes Full-Sized Politician Out of Mitch Daniels and Mike Bloomberg (VIDEO)

On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), host Jon Stewart pointed out that no major GOP candidate has yet declared they are running for President, whereas at the same time in the 2008 cycle, 12 had already staked their claim. Then Stewart discussed all the Republicans who might eventually toss their hat into the ring. When he got to Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, who stands a generous 5'7" tall and has a comb-over style haircut, Stewart played a clip of Daniels acknowledging he doesn't look like the typical President. "Sure, if it comes down to height and hair, I probably wouldn't do very well," Daniels said of his presidential chances in the clip. //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/02/jon-stewart-makes-full-sized-politician-out-of-mitch-daniels-and/

Jon Stewart Declares Charlie Sheen to be Even More Insane Than Glenn Beck (VIDEO)

Howard Stern was the guest on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), where the topic of discussion inevitably turned to Charlie Sheen. "Who is more insane: Charlie Sheen or Glenn Beck?" Stern asked Stewart. "It's an interesting comparision," Stewart responded. "I'm going to go with -- and again, people may be surprised by this answer -- I would go with the guy whose skin you could flake off and smoke like crack. I'm going to go with Charlie Sheen." //www.tvsquad.com/2011/03/01/jon-stewart-declares-charlie-sheen-to-be-even-more-insane-than-g/
