    The rumor is that Jon Stewart now openly supports all things Dem and rejects all things Repub, because he was told hollywoodies like Matt Damon, etc would never go on his show if he didn't.

    Beliebable. I turned off Jon Stewart mid way through the last election cycle because, in my opinion, he went full retard. You never go full retard.

    I would expect his viewership to decline as more and more people who tolerated his liberal bias for the sake of a laugh, find his show less and less watchable (and funny).

    Its a damn shame. I've been watching his schtick for 20 years.

    Uh. . . Yeah. . . ....

    To me, Stewart has always been in the same boat as a Chris Matthews and/or Rachel Maddow. They've never deserved a second of view time from me.. lol

    I never really looked at it as a solid state value, with the broadcaster in question being either a full blown moon bat, an impartial journalist, or a right winger.

    Instead I tend to look at them on a scale, with Keith Olbermann on one end, Hannity on the other, and everyone else somewhere in between. I think Stewart started out about 10% left of center, and has allowed himself to become radicalized, sliding to to some place around 30% left of center, or 20% right of the hard left. I place him just to the right of Mathews.

    If we arent talking about comedy and entertainment, I like AC, Major Garret, and John King, though AC is starting to do some pretty dorky entertainment stuff and he really isn't very funny. I actually feel sad for Colbert, who is horrible at comedy, analysis, and journalism.

    Would you peddle child porn if it earned you "a squiliion bucks"? Jim and Tammy Faye Baker made quite a bit of money too, peddling a very similar product, and I dare say they were funnier than Colbert without even trying to be.

    He's not peddling child porn though is he? He's providing "entertainment" to the masses that watch him. There's a massive difference there.

    Oh joy. Welcome to America. Come here for the benefits, stay to tell us you hate us.

    Oh, and if you have a problem with that whole formula, you are probably a racist, homophobe, flat earther.


    If by "entertainment" you mean kool aide, I can agree. What was the difference between him and Jim and tammy faye again?

    He is who you think he is? Doesn't preach one way but lives another? They were preachers claiming they were godly, but they weren't? I don't know. You tell me?

    They were both people who make money peddling nonsense? I suppose Colbert actually tries to be funny, where Jim and Tammy didn't, but that just makes it more pathetic, IMO.

    I read a few updates in the news. They've arrested a few of the bomber's friends that tried to get rid of evidence. Source: NewsDay

    And here's a video interview of the carjacking victim. In the earlier news, I thought they were saying something about the bombers deciding not to kill this man because he's Chinese. In the interview, he's not claiming anything like that. He's saying he had to attempt escape when they stopped at the gas station. I'm glad he was able to get to safety.

    I think the first question anyone should ask, before judging whether it's been edited, is what's the source of that image/video? On the FBI website they have the released video/images, I don't see this particular image he's discussing at 00:17.

    Rebecca, thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/04/18/new-higher-resolution-image-of-boston-marathon-suspect-emerges/


    the photo is really weird (square part on the arm), when you zoom-in in photoshop (I work in photoshop too). There are other videos on youtube, which ARE NOT on FBI website, they are interesting too (like this one watch?v=Wpu6_kArb9U). The FBI page has very little info for obvious reasons.

    Jesus, where do these people come from? Perhaps all the dead and amputees are acting! Dzhokhar is being paid to claim he did it! He just ran over his brother because of a family feud.

    According to that article, the picture was taken by a Mr. Green that participated in the Boston Marathon.

    After the FBI released photos of the suspects, his friends noticed one of the suspects in Mr. Green's photo. Even if the picture was edited, which honestly, I don't believe it was, it would have been on Mr. Green. He was the one that photographed and posted the picture.

    Think about the evidence they've gathered. They have an eye witness of the bomb being planted. They have video and pictures from a variety of sources. The police were in a shoot out with them. The car jacking victim says they admitted to the bombing and killing an officer. The bomber that lived says he did it. And so on...

    oh yes, Dzhokhar will say no in FBI hands? Are you on planet Earth or somewhere else?


    all that according to whom? According to police? They added later that his brother ran him over with the SUV but then they said he was dead in a shootout while driving...?

    just look at this page and photos and videos on it. http://enfordummies.com/wordpress/more-proof-evidence-boston-bombing-man-leg-blown-off-fake/ (warning +18) Photos with no blood is strange, and then suddenly the blood is on the ground. Many strange things explained there, from medical view as well.

    look at this photo:

    [​IMG]

    why is this lady laughing? Also check out the glass - on the right 30 mins later - its gone. Where and how?

    Police, news, witnesses, victims...


    I didn't read anything about him being dead while driving. Here, I pulled up Wikipedia for you:




    Suddenly blood is on the ground? I have no idea what you're talking about.



    If the lady is laughing, I have no idea why. People can react strangely to stress. It's hard to tell in the picture. It looks like she's making some sort of an expression. And yes, it does look like a window is broken. If this passes for you as proof the Boston Marathon bombing was fake, I'm not sure what to say. I guess you're just trying to believe what you want to, regardless of facts.
