As soooon as I read the title I was hoping for that clip.

I don't understand how he stays on the air... EVERY SINGLE other network/ "news" person understands he is nuts.... he is good for comedy sake though

It's actually funny how Stewart equates what Beck as saying is ratication of a race, when what he is talking about is how both Russia and Germany were about Social Justice. It's about the emitional plea. I actually really don't like Beck, but that part is funny.

Yes, Wes, Stewart is just as annoying as Beck, hate to break it to you.

I have heard Glenn Beck maybe twice for maybe a 5 minute at a time. The couple of times I did listen to him, his points made sense. He did seem a little fast paced and east coast fast talk vince from sham wow kind of way.

John Stewart is a comedy show host. I have seen more stewart than Glenn Beck by at least 30 to 1. John is a self described liberal who happens to have a comedy show. He found an audience during the Bush administration by repeating the same democrat lies that they had nothing to do with (insert topic). He now will hit the democrats from time to time (he has too, they run everything) but he still likes to try and stick with his political hack ways.

His shtick is typical. Frame out of context points into your sub context. Make fun of it. Ignore the rest of the message.

That's why I mock mostly leftist political commentary because much of it comes from comedy shows. The reality hardly any leftist political talk shows actually stay on the air because most of the arguments really do not hold water logically and end up sounding more of a hate fest than anything. Not saying some of the conservative shows don't do that, but, logically much of the content makes sense. Stewart stays on because he makes people laugh. Pure and simple. He is a genius at what he does but at the end of the day he does what ALL comedians do.

They take a real life situation. Take it out of context and place it in an out of context situation and make people laugh at it. Just like Dave Chappelle. Pure genius. Loved the show. Agreed with almost all the skits premises but I sure as heck am not going to take political/ economic advise from him.

As soon as I saw the title I knew what this was, hilarious!

Did you spot his white Converse he was wearing with his suit? Pretty funny too...

Stewart, gets funnier and funnier as time goes on. He nailed his portrayal of Beck right on the head.

I don't like Glenn Beck and I think Stewart is a moron. Colbert is more entertaining...his ratings suggest that too.

I don't watch Beck, but I've never been able to stand Stewart...for those who were asking why I wasn't going to watch.

I'm more of a "we the people" kind of guy than a me vs you type. Most of these guys just try to keep the division alive.

Kind of disappointing cuz John Stewart is usually a lot funnier than that. Seems like he tried way too hard and spent way too much time trying to make a point by taking Beck out of context. Beck comes up with a lot of stuff on his show that everybody should know, whether or not they think it's important enough to worry about or whether or not they agree with Beck's philosophy. Yes, he's a little dramatic and annoying, but he provides good information in most cases. I actually can't watch it too much cuz it's kind of depressing when you start learning some of this stuff. Many people who have not spent a lot of time watching his show will argue against these points and that's fine. That's their loss. I'm not hear to convince anybody to watch Glenn Beck.

Unfortunately, the way his show is structured makes it really easy for guys like Stewart to cherry pick out-of-context clips and make fun of them. Usually, Stewart does a much better job.
