Got a thumbs down on this one.
Looks like I hurt someone's feelings.
The title of this thread is that deceptive editing was used . If he said it, admits saying it and is upset that he wasn't given a chance to make things right, that's a separate issue.
that's simply bizarre. are you familiar with either one of them?
You give yourself too much credit, I actually was going for the disagree button.
I mean the comparison is really confusing. They're really in no way alike.
This is as silly a thread as the ones where conservatives say that websites that play a right winger's words unedited and in context are "gotcha" sites.
Guess it's just me, but on the rare occassions I catch the show it's generally on Tivo and I almost always skip the "let-me-whore-out-my-new-book/movie/TV show" interview anyway.
This was part of the fake 2-sided interview segments they sometimes do in the middle of the show. The thing is everyone watching the show knows these are edited to move back and forth between multiple view points in a comedic way.
Oh, it's THAT? In that case, c'mon...those are ALWAYS edited for comedic value. Now, that's just silly.
Yeah, I always assumed people were somewhat "in" on the conceit in those interviews. If this guy is serious about his criticism, it seems there may actually be an ample supply of people who can be suckered Ali-G style on these interviews.
He's serious in only trying to cover up his idiocy. If he wasn't in on the conceit, it's his problem. Stewart has been doing this for nearly 15 years and has been doing these style interviews for humor for nearly the entire run.
I mean, Libertarianism is idiotic enough, but saying the mentally challenged should work for $2/hr doesnt help things.
I suspect part of the reason serious people still go on those shows is ego - the thought that they are the person smart enough to do a trap interview, catch them with their brilliance, and make the host look bad.
With Colbert's "better know a district" it got to the point where even though everyone knew you would come out looking like an idiot, congressmen were still doing it and the House caucuses actually had to send out memos asking their members to please not appear on that segment because it was making them all look foolish.
I wondered where that segment went. It was great.
The libertarian doth protests too much, methinks.
Then get it right haha: Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz
Boy... Talk about hitting the lemming masses directly at their core...
Verti must be shaking in her shoes with rage.
I wish there was a "PWNED X 1,000" icon... Even then, it wouldn't even scratch the surface of the severity of this burn...
