Worse than Swift Boating and worse than Willie Horton, Mitt Romney is running the most craven, dishonest, and hypocritical campaign we've seen in contemporary American politics.
We'll have to wait until next week to see if and how the late night shows tackle the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado (except for Craig Ferguson, w...
Humor has always been the best way to swallow and accept the obvious exploitation of political office and the misbehavior of politicians.
Our lazy embrace of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert is a testament to our own impoverished comic standards. We have come to accept coy mockery as genuine subversion and snarky mimesis as originality.
Romney is taking advantage of the government's "free stuff," too, and has been profiting from it handsomely for a long, long time -- even as he rails about the "free stuff" that the government provides other people.
Over the last year, the late night hosts have celebrated everything both wonderful and terrible about America (or Amercia if you're Mitt Romney). This 4th of July, let's all take a look back at the most patriotic late night clips of the year.
From the beginning of the week with their ruling on Arizona's immigration law to the big health care decision on Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled the...
The question before us is plain: Why should I pick up the phone and give Barack Obama money this year?
This week, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart looked into the psychology of the presidential bully. Conan spent time with Romney's sons, David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon taught Justin Bieber valuable lessons, and Jay Leno made out with Andy Samberg.
Bassem had been a fan of The Daily Show since he first saw it while on a visit to the United States a few years earlier. He longed for an Egyptian version of the show, but that would have been impossible prior to the revolution.

All of the late night shows were back in full force this week (unlike last) to cover these stories and more.
In our interconnected world, all of us, individuals and organizations, public and private, can no longer be fixed on "I." We all have to learn to play well with others and collaborate substantively in the proverbial sandbox.
After two long weeks off the air, "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" returned this week, just as almost every other late night show went on hiatus
It is a real a stretch to see Stewart as a teacher of religion. True, his interviews on religious matters, as on everything else, are always civil. But the fact is that while he avoids anger and bitterness, his jokes and skits on religion have a mocking, dismissive tone.
NPR and Jon Stewart's Daily Show came out on top as the most informative, making the schadenfreude all the more delicious for Fox-haters, and the twisting of the liberal knife-in-the-back all the more painful for Fox fans. But how did it come to that?
Yesterday I came across one particular lie from David Barton that is so incredible that I just have to share it. For anyone who's ever wondered just how far Barton will go, I think this one answers that question.
