I don't really like the Daily show [sorry]..as it is horribly manipulative. I have to admit though, the interview with the pakistani president was well done.

i know where your coming from but i wouldn't really use the word MANIPULATIVE. It's true they have their own opinions, but they express them in an honest, forward and genuine way. I also don't get the impression that they are lying - it seems that it is genuinely what they believe.

The joke is that so much of the media is pushing the OTHER way (pro-republican), they provide a refreshing breather from the opinions that are imposed on us in a much sneakier and less genuine way from everywhere else.

TDS is also nice and light with a good sense of humour making it easy to watch :)

Distorting the truth [no need to lie] .. showing only partial segments of a spech or event [out of context] that highlight their ''joke''. Not having the right to reply . I'd say that was pretty manipulative.

I know that, i have no issue with them having a right to say what ever they like. The point was i find them manipulative [obviously you disagree] and i don't like that or the programme.

No doubt they believe in the slant they adopt. I don't think they are blinded or not willing to see another perspective. Most rational people can do that [i'm not claiming they are irrational].

''Distorting the truth [no need to lie]''

The art of manipulation [imho] is knowing the ''truth'' but then manipulating that truth. Ofcourse they know what they are saying is not a ''lie''. They are too smart for that. They just choose to take the POV that suits what ever 'agenda' they have.

We can't say that there is a genuine ''pro-republican'' stance amongst our media or there media as this show as a e.g , there are many many differing views. We only hear that claim on the shows like this and ones that DO have a pro-republican stance. Obviously the reverse of that occurs in other places with a pro-republican stance.

I agree. Just because it is not my cup of tea. I do appreciate its point of view and its style.

it's all cool man, i think TDS really is something you love or you hate :)

i guess one of the main reasons i feel drawn to it (hilarious comedy aside!) is its tendancy to say things that i would never dare say! Most of the views they express on there I agree with, and it's fantastic to know that some people out there aren't afraid to voice them :)

and a silly extra point - i don't think anyone could ever dislike stephen colbert! hehehe :D

Well it might be the point that i DON'T agree with most of what they say.. :whistle: ..That might be a reason i don't like it ;) . Though i was watching Bremner Bird and Fortune [Hazel Blears: Shoveling shit from one place to another.. now that is funny.]. That was ok.. and they have the same kinda stance. Maybe it is the brash americanism of the whole thing.



I dunno.. Like you say it is like marmite.. :whistle:

Don't you find it patronising when they interview some one and take the piss. I watched that british chap take the piss out of some dude from the mexican peoples union [or something].. i felt sorry for him.. Though i suppose if they don't like it they just don't let them show it.

yeah i have to admit at times it can be a bit cringeworthy at times... it has it's good episodes and it's bad episodes though :)

and the good ones are usually fantastic! :D
