    Other than Rahm Emanuel, who he devoted the second part of the show to, nothing I can think of. Generally Jon Stewart sticks on one or two topics during the first part of his show. Devoting it to Sanchez is nothing out of the ordinary, and you are looking to deeply in to it.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    his problem was he didnt know when to shut up,
    judging by the editorial merit of his show, or the ones I saw, I'm guessing the reason he got a job to start with was because he was Cuban. Or it had more to do with it than his talent at the very least.

    I find it funny that he wasn't let go until after he had a melt down. Rick failed basic geography and repeatedly made errors on the air. Here's a classic example of Rick not knowing geography.

    Also, I think it is a decent point his show not being balanced. He tries to hide behind the specter of it being comedy, but usually about half of the episode is real political discussion not comedy.

    One thing that annoys me is Jon Stewart seems to think he can have it both ways. That he can deflect criticism of his show by saying he is a comedian, but then be taken seriously whenever he wants to be taken seriously.
    I'm sure we can find partisans on both sides who don't think something was univerisally worthy of mocking, but those things he show are pretty darn close, if not wholely univerisally deserving of mocking. It is almost always some very stupid ****.

    And again, the show has no obligation to be balanced. And how seriously someone decides to take him is their choice, not his.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
