Bill Maher vs. Jon Stewart: Maher Takes On Rally To Restore Sanity (VIDEO)
I’ve watched Stewart’s closing speech at the rally once in its entirety, and parts of it a few times. Stewart mostly was not talking about liberals and conservatives, per se. What he attacked was the media as a whole, specifically cable news. It was the air of bickering that Stewart despised, and to this, he claims that both liberals and conservatives are at fault.
The bigger point is this: People like Bill Maher and Keith Olbermann, likable as they are (to me, anyway), pretty much perpetuate the existence of Fox News because they need a target, someone to place the blame and ridicule. Jon Stewart believes that Maher, Olbermann, and other liberals need not to keep attacking Fox (other than correcting factual errors) in order to prove their points. Only by taking the high road will the state of American politics be less disgusting.
