die daily show die

i have been avioding the daily show for at least 3 months now, because it has turned into the new political machine for college students everywhere. i am totally sick of students who tune into the daily show then decide they are political geniuses. these kind of people need to put a sock in it. why educate yourself with this liberal leftist, slanted, spun off, poorly written, smear campaign? its the same stupid crap everyshows first segment. and yeah i know its supposed to be a comedy show, but the attacks on the president are not just jokes. they are cheap shots, that are spun off for that TOOL johnny stewart to read off and gain glory from the uneducated youth that tunes in every night.
tonight johnny was joking on the stem cell research veto that bush issued. now, we were all already aware that the liberal media does not agreee with the principles that the president supports, abortion at the front. but the daily show puts together trendy little snippetts of the president and tony snow's speeches and to make him out to be this fundementalist lying dictator. thats where the slant and spin come into the show. the president along with many members of the gop believes that a human life should not be created, only to be destroyed. he isnt agianst stem cell research, he is agianst funding this method of supply for the stem cells. he explained all of this in his message to the house of representatives. WHICH RECIEVED NO COVERAGE AT ALL. there were three parts to this bill when it was in senate, only one that bush disagreed with, and because of his strong opinions and the absence of the line item veto, the WHOLE bill had to be smashed. the part that caused the veto (which congress was well aware of before hand) a House-passed measure (HR 810) that would allow federal funding for stem cells taken from surplus embryos at in vitro fertilization clinics. President Bush has ALWAYS threatened to veto any such legislation that comes to his desk. SO WHY IS THIS SUCH A SUPRISE?
then comes bush's appearance at the annual naacp convention. all we get from comedy central is clips from kayne west, and hurricane katrina victims. agian, i wonder why. no mention of the reasons why he came or what he acually talked about. im SICK OF IT!
then colbert comes on after stewy. he is like the little guy in star wars that sits in the rafters above jabba the hut. just mimics and chimes in with the same crap. not as brash or offensive though, but still there for some reason. agian, i believe that my life would be better without these shows.

clk on myspase paige 2 c me w/pics and beers can

heres what im tired of, and yes im probably talking about you. i am sick of 1) mtv. 2) myspace & facebook 3) the combination of these things to give the youth of today a spoonful of corruption. the worst thing is that many students (at all levels) are making themselves into what they have learned from the movies and pop culture. dont understand? well its like some sort of detachment from the worlds happenings in that, the only things that are uccaptable are those things viewed in movies or agian, in pop cultures media machine.

i have been there, and still stuggle with it, which is probably why im writing this, because it seems that the best way that we identify with each other is through materialistic trendy pop language. ie- constant movie quotes as conversation, its like each new movie holds a new key that we need to have. i mean are there any more romantic situations, relationship querks, or jokes about sex that hollywood can come up with? what do these things have to do with WHO we are? what it comes down to i gues is that when i think about it i truly believe that i would be better off had i not been introduced to this perverted comedy that is the only comedy we have today on tv and movies.

and yes its perverted, centered completely around sex.
one good example, back in 1992 when mtv had a shard of credit, the reported most popular movies amound their viewers were, Terminator 2: Judgement Day (which won) Backdraft, Boyz N The Hood, JFK, and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Now mtv has in 2006- Batman Begins, King Kong, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Sin City, and Wedding Crashers... guess who won? the movie centered around two guys crashing wedding parties to have sex with the guests. and of course not much needs to be said about 40-year old virgin, and sin city. but seriosly look at how freakin far we have come. if you look at the trend on what is being allowed in movies, and tv, where are we headed? i am really asking.

and i am not calling for a special group to regulate this or for anyone to throw out their tv and stop going to movies, but really, where is it leading too? i dont have the answer and dont claim to. but whats gonna be on the big screen in 10 years? are comedies ever gonna be collectively funny without sex as a backdrop?

now please excuse me while i go back to hiding in my closet.
