Oliver Willis: 'Jon Stewart Is The Only Real Journalist In America'

Oliver Willis: 'Jon Stewart Is The Only Real Journalist In America'

I shamelessly stole this from Oliver Willis of Like Kryptonite To Stupid:

But then on Monday night, on what is - theoretically - a "fake" news show hosted by a comedian, conservative pundit Bill Kristol tried to get away with the line about Pollack / O'Hanlon and Jon Stewart did what the mainstream media refuses to do time and time again as they roll over and play complicit lapdog for the Bush administration: He said nuh-uh. Jon Stewart does not have superpowers. In fact he jokes regularly about being silly. Yet, in this instance (and in numerous others) he demonstrated the lost art of journalism that the msm does not practice anymore. Somebody made an assertion and he challenged the assertion with factual information. Oliver Willis

Oliver Willis has the video. Go check it out! And while you are there, go say hello to his weiner dog!

Honestly - I thought Dr. Z was the only real journalist. (oh but don't go telling that Dr MVM I said so!)

J.D.: Well, that is almost true. Aside from Jon Stewart, there is also Keith Olbermann. And the Republican side, there is Stephen Colbert, but he's French so it's OK.

FranIAm: Ah, but I am not journalist. Dr. MVM are just humble bloggers loyal to the cause, like you.

GETkristiLOVE: I am not going to touch that line with a ten foot pole. Wait, did I just say that out loud?

Stephen Colbert isn't a republican, he's a conservative independent. And he's also a character created by Stephen Colbert. Yeah.

Yes, but he's French, so it's OK! ;o)
