Jon Stewart Tries To Distract Us From All These Obama Distractions Fox News Is Yelling About
Forget comedy; Jon Stewart is quite simply one of our best media critics, a Marshal McLuhan for stoned millennials. On Tuesday's Daily Show, he treated us to his analysis of the pre-Super Bowl interview in which "the most powerful man in the Free World sat down with Obama" for a visit to the "Fox scandal grab bag."
Going after Fox is a Stewart specialty, of course, and he's in fine form in this first act of TDS, with a sparkly collection of clips showing Fox anchors accusing Obama of using nearly every event to "distract" from one scandal or another -- including, of course, the notion that Obama craftily managed to "deflect the spotlight from [his] many scandals by doing an interview about them, right before the most watched event in the history of television."
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
