Tim Wise and Don Lemon break down “white racial resentment / white racial paranoia” that is occurring at town hall meetings and the inflammatory rhetoric (e.g. comparing Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler) spewing out of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Buchannan et al.
Jon Stewart and Larry Wilmore, from the Daily Show, satirize “white fear.”
Jon Stewart’s interview of CNBC’s Jim Cramer isn’t what I would call comedy. Stewart’s show may run on Comedy Central, but this interview really picks apart CNBC and Jim Cramer. I noticed that some of the “real news” networks ran stories about this interview. The sad part was they didn’t look in a journalistic mirror and ask themselves why a show on a comedy network was doing a better job of analyzing a legitimate news story. These 3 clips are uncut/un-bleeped. They are not safe for work, my mother or any fans of CNBC.
