Reverend Jax Posted October 6, 2004 Share Posted October 6, 2004 Ok, here's a thread to post about and discuss the Daily Show. Just wanna say "Man, that joke about Bush being dumb was great yesterday!" then here's the place to say it. Wanna discuss something that might get a discussion going, post it here! Naked pictures of Stephen Colbert? Post em here! For the international members, I'm not sure if the show gets airred in the UK, Ireland or Guyana, but it's worth watching almost every night! You can grab full episodes via BitTorrent at ShunTV. The site was shut down for like a month, but it's back up now and should be posting episodes regularly, but I'm not sure all the September episodes that airred during the down time will be put up. I'll post the links to the Torrents here in this thread. You need to register (free) with the site to access it, but some sites also have torrent files that you can't actually download with unless you're registered. So, if you have BiTorrent and know it works, but the torrents I'm posting don't work, go the site and register. I'm linking two torrents. First, Oct 4th's episode, with Archbishop Desmond Tutu on the show (Benny, I suggest you watch, you know how cool Tutu is). The second is the Bill O'Reilly interview of Jon Stewert which I will post about in a second. I'm posting a video with Bill O'Reilly to offset how cool Tutu is. OK, the deal with the O'Reilly interiew is this: Jon Stewart went to go get interview by O'Reilly, and O'Reilly repeatedly refered the audience of the Daily Show (the broadcast audience, not the studio audience) as "stoner slackers." Jon Stewart ran with and took it as humor, although O'Reilly clearly menat it. He even refered to the "research" that showed "87%" of the Daily Show audience are "intoxicated when they watch the program." Again, Jon Stewart was not offended by this, and said OK when O'Reilly presented this "fact." But...Comedy Central did take offense. The next day, they released several University studies that showed that the Daily Show's audience was more educated than the O'Reilly Factor/No Spin Zone audience and were more informed about the issues. Here's the kicker for me: At the end of the interview, O'REilly said he'd be coming on the show next month. What will he have to say about his remarks and those studies?
