Jon Stewart was
funny before he got ratings and thus turned his show into his personal political agenda: ie. misquote President Bush at least three times per segment and follow it with some snide remark about vacationing. Sorry, that's not comedic. His show was
funny when he was trying to attract an audience and, obviously, that is no longer the case and it hasn't been for a few years now.

Krugman worked on an advisory board for Enron throughout most of 1999 before resigning to take a job as a columnist. This became a source of controversy when the story of the Enron scandal broke, with critics accusing him of having a conflict of interest and the job of having been a bribe to control media coverage, charges he vehemently denies.
Mookie, all we want to hear is that using Krugman as a source is a laugher. He's inherently biased because the first paragraph I just quoted and he's a scoundrel for being involved in the Enron fiasco.
And I'll leave this post with a brilliant Paul Krugman quote.
Krugman wrote:Can we break the machine that is imposing right-wing radicalism on the United States? The scariest part is that the media is part of that machine.
Yeah Krugman, the media is on the right-wing.
Marver what is your problem? I have not directed a single comment at you. I quoted the Krugman article more than a week ago and since that time I have not had a single exchange with you over it.
If you want to get into it with me as you seem wont to do, that's fine. I have not put Krugman forward as an impartial reporter or even for the truth of the content of his article. The article was only put forward as an example that for every republican hack out there laying the blame at the feet of the local authorities there is a counterpart doing the same on the left.
I have always said that the entire idea of laying blame at this stage is counter productive but to say that the feds are blameless is ridiculous. Even George Bush has admitted to failures in his administration over their response to this disaster. The rebublicans on this board, your mentor wrveres chief among them, refuse to acknowledge, however, that the feds are anything but heroes in this matter. That mindless piece of cronyism that wr spammed to everyone is exhibit A. If you want my true feelings on that article why don't you ask Sluggers to PM it to you.
I don't care one wit about Krugman so when you go on about Krugman's bias I have no idea who you are arguing with but it's not me.
