Jon Stewart was in prime form last night as he ripped into conservative and mainstream media for their completely hysterical and pretty much expected FREAK-OUT over the legalization of recreational pot in Colorado.
From Bill O’Reilly’s claim that legalizing pot is “literally Russian roulette” to the hypocrisy of anti gun control pundits versus pro pot control pundits, and all the way to the lax views and promotion of alcohol on television by those same people, nothing was off the table for Stewart.
Bringing it back to O’Reilly however – because lets face it, there’s never a shortage of asinine, uneducated and baseless things this man will say – it was a particularity stunning moment when Stewart showed a clip of O’Reilly trying to connect drug addiction to teen texting somehow, because let’s face it, there’s no easier target than teenagers for adults to pick on.
“What the hell just happened?” Stewart asked after one of the longest comical pauses in television history. “How did we go from “Just Say No” to “and what’s with all the beep-beep-boop-boop machines, and with the LOL and the TTYK.””
The list of hypocrisy goes on and on with known racists saying American kids should be more like Chinese kids, that Facebook and marijuana are identical “addictions”, and Stewart calling one Fox guest Keith Ablow a “f**king idiot.”
Watch the two videos below, take a minute to laugh your ass off, and then take a second to click one of the share buttons on the left so more people can see Stewart destroy the media freak-out over Colorado’s new pot laws.
