MUST SEE: Jon Stewart Reveals Republican Party Hypocrisy


(5:39)

The one thing about holding an opinion is to apply it fairly to all situations. People whose opinions that flip and flop without any qualifications, that change their views depending on who is being attacked, reveal themselves to be disingenuous hypocrites.

Individuals in the media who engage in such activity should be given short thrift. Although we accept this sort of hypocrisy as part and parcel of politics, this sort of practice is simply not acceptable. There must be a higher standard. I personally don't want grossly dishonest political spin shoved in my face !

Where are the tough reporters in the media ready to challenge this sort of activity ? ... oh yeah, they are on the The Daily Show, a comedy show that runs the most critical mainstream coverage of political events in the USA.
