What? Are you telling me that Jon Stewart is a progressive leftist liberal who used his show as a propaganda tool for the benefit of the Democratic party?

Next you'll tell me that he's Jewish!

Honestly, it seems like whoever wrote this article is really stretching to paint Stewart in a negative light, when, in reality, the two instances he was called into the White House and then did a segment that Obama had covered don't really show much collusion between the two.

If anything, all this "revelation" does is reinforce what was pretty well known from the get-go: that Jon Stewart's show leaned heavily left. That's not too surprising, nor does it take away from what the show managed to accomplish over Stewart's run. I seriously think the writer is just grasping at straws in an attempt to make it seem like The Daily Show was totally controlled by the White House over the last eight years.

"Breaking news! Evil leftist news show has evil leftist views! Conspiracy?!"

I had high hopes that Voat's userbase would try to be better than reddit, but in the end voat is just shaping up to be another damn circlejerk

Still, that bit about Operation Mockingbird is an eye-opener.

At least Obama's not sleeping with him for positive coverage. Or is he?

Oy vey! Calling someone Jewish is anti-semitic! His name is Stewart, not Leibowitz!
