    He came under A LOT of heat from Democrats for not instead ranting at Republicans and it appears he saw the light, regressing to trivial sneering rants at Republicans often with no substance other than just pointless personal redicule.

    He's losing his funny and increasingly just becoming a shallow overacting characature of himself. I also think he's became a lazyass and just showing up and going thru whatever staff writers toss in front of him. My wife won't even watch him anymore. And she used to be a very devoted fan at many levels. Again, we travelled cross country just so she could attend his DC event.
    Stewart seems to believe deeply in an America of the past that never was -- the one where the news anchor is objective and fair and sincerely wants the people to know the truth. The one where there is little or no debate or dispute among news organizations about the issues of the day. He wants so badly to go back to that because he thought it reflected a similar consensus among the American people of the day. But it did not; there has always been a sizable group that thinks that TV news is full of crap. There have always been people who read each New York Times article to the very end so that they can tear the article apart with its own contradictions.

    Didn't his friend Sacha Baron Cohen did that with his movie the dictator? I mean, really, how honest and truthful can a man, whose life purpose is to make fun of political events (which he does rather well) portray a complex and unfunny situation like the one in Iran.

    Answer: He can't.

    So lets all stick to what we do best...

    you presume stewart's future abilities are limited to only what you have seen of his past work
    let's hold off judgment until we see what he accomplishes over the summer
    i have high expectations ... but it is also possible that his efforts may be disappointing
    let's wait and see
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Re: Jon Stewart Is Taking the Summer Off to Make a Movie About Iran

    I would love to know why progressives are so sympathetic to those who want to see them dead and hateful to those who want to see them live?

    I don't think every Iranian want's to see Americans dead, however it's definitely the status quo in Iran.

    I would love to know what John Stewart is trying to figure out with his movie or better yet trying to portray. Needless to say I don't think his portrayal of Iran will be honest considering his entire career is based on the manipulating of others.

    this is an ignorant post
    many things American are admired by the iranian on the street
    just not our government's actions against their country
    much like cubans or venezuelans

    I didn't say all Iranians hate the US or US citizens.

    Lets just say in Iran the typical child programming on TV consists of degrading the US and Israel, portraying Arabs and Muslims as victims of the West and Israel... It's the status quo.

    At the same time I'm sure there are plenty of Iranians who aren't duped by the state run media propaganda, just like there are plenty of people that don't fall for the progressive nonsense here in the US media.

    It's the official position of their government Ahmadinejad isn't shy about that.

    Like I said - of course not everyone in Iran buys the "USA is evil and all Jews eat Muslim babies" nonsense. Of course those that take a different opinion publicly are frowned upon and looked down upon. That's why I used the term status quo.
