This is far from a complete list, Jon routinely pulls back the curtain on the media, but these are some of the most memorable moments. There's nothing better than watching someone else actually say and do exactly what you WISH you could do if you had a) the guts, b) the talent, and c) the forum. Jon Stewart is just the man for the job. These are some of the moments that made viewers howl with joy.
I think this could be the greatest thing I have ever seen on TV. And while I may be prone to hyperbole (I, in fact, wear a t-shirt with the word "hyperbole" on it) watching Jon imitate Glenn Beck's utterly ridiculous show was both gut-wrenchingly hilarious and also gut-wrenchingly painful. Painful, because of how many people BELIEVE every ludicrous thing this man makes up on a daily basis. see more on Glenn Beck
My loathing for shows like Crossfire and dickweeds like Tucker Carlson is really quite shocking. Never, ever quote these kinds of bulls**t, talking head, know-nothing pundits to me in a discussion unless you don't mind talking over my ranting. When Jon went on Crossfire and showed Carlson just what a f**king pretender he was... I was standing on my couch cheering through my tears of joy.
This was stellar. I'm not even talking about when Jim came on the Daily Show, but really, the whole thing. The perfect ripping down of the curtain these guys stand behind. I just wish that there were more lasting repercussions when Jon reminds us that the Emperor wears no clothes. Sadly, nothing much ever comes from it except the fleeting satisfaction of watching someone else say just what you want to.
