• Indecision 2000: How Jon Stewart made Fake News become real news

    Late night comedians have become the signal within the noise of information in today’s tsunami of 24-hour news coverage. They have the unique ability to follow the punches to the face from 2018’s outrageous midterm election headlines with the first aid of laughter.  Many television historians credit Jon Stewart with being the original comedy newsman.

    Lewis Black: George Bush Jr. looks positively Jamaican compared to Mitt Romney (Video)

    On last night’s Totally Biased, Lewis Black stopped by to chat with host W. Kamau Bell about sports, men’s fashion and low-calorie alternatives to cheeseburgers. JK! They talked about the election, you silly geese. What else would they talk about? In fact, the veteran comedian and the rising comedy star spoke about what made Romney lose the election (hint: it has something to do with the headline above), the fundamental

    David Letterman rips into Karl Rove for his super awkward election night analysis (Videos)

    The presidential election is over, but the news — and more importantly, the videos being circulated — surrounding the night Barack Obama won a second term, are far from over.

    Ricky Gervais would’ve voted for Obama, you know…if he was allowed to vote (Video)

    Before the election results were in yesterday, Ricky Gervais dropped by the Opie and Anthony Show on SiriusXM, where naturally an Obama-vs-Romney discussion developed. Although Gervais isn’t allowed to vote in America, as he’s still a British citizen despite spending most of his time in Los Angeles, he was painfully clear as to who he supports. “Obama,” Gervais tells comedian Jim Norton, the show’s third mic co-host. “The real president,

    If you watched the special live editions of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report last night, you already know that both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert revealed that Barack Obama won reelection to their studio audiences.

    An ode to School House Rocks features an angry, homeless Uncle Sam (Video)

    The folks at Animation Domination High Def have struck again, this time tackling the process by which we vote for president of the United States. A play on the classic School House Rocks songs that still help educate our youth, this one features a homeless Uncle Sam who’s more of a conspiracy theorist than a patriot. Or is he more patriot? You tell us.
