‎"Did I ever tell you that I, Roger Ailes, plan to undermine the role of an independent press by constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch, conservative narrative is biased, while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by building a conservative propaganda juggernaut in the guise of a news organization ... Jon, I'm gonna call the organization Fox News, and its tagline will be -- you're gonna love this: 'A Fanatically Micro-Managed Media Fiefdom Where My Own Far-Right Agenda And Personal Sense of Victomhood Drive Every Aspect of the Operation ... and Balanced.'" - Jon Stewart

This clip is incomplete without its follow-up ... not sure why The Daily show splits these types of clips up so often: http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-may-29-2012/communist-central---obama-s-socialist-scheme

Oh, Jon, how we've missed you ...

As different as Jon McNaughton and his paintings are, they actually make a small amount of sense when you realize the perspective he comes from. And that is that he believes the Constitution was inspired by God, just like the Bible.

Even still, only a very small amount of sense, because they're otherwise still riddled with pretty obvious issues stemming from propaganda. Of course, without them, we wouldn't have this great bit from Colbert.

"Some people say journalism is in decline. They say you've become to politicized. Too focused on sensationalism. They say you no longer honor your duty to inform America, but instead actively try to divide us so that your corporate overlords can rake in the profits ... I don't have a joke for this, I'm just letting you know what some people say." - Jimmy Kimmel at the White House Correspondents Dinner

I'm not sure it was necessary for Newt to clarify that, though he was suspending his campaign, he would not be suspending his citizenship.

Right. Why would you? Those should be the types of things that get cut from a speech on the "is it necessary to mention this in the given context" pass when proofing the speech.

AEHF-2 launch window tomorrow from 1:46 pm to 3:46 pm (CST).

Second of four $1 billion rockets carrying the AEHF satellites to replace the existing Milstar constellation. There will be a live stream of the launch at this link tomorrow just prior to and during (obviously) the launch window.

And, after you watch that clip, the second half (not sure why they split it up) is here: http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-may-1-2012/victory-lapse---the-anniversary-of-osama-bin-laden-s-death

"I have to say, nothing is more depressing about politics than the fact that 'adult' is now a compliment. 'Adult' is only a compliment to a child. 'I'm so proud of you; you acted like an adult tonight. I'm glad I brought you to my bosses house for dinner. You even cut your own meat like a big boy.'" - Seth Meyers
