A: He has forced the media’s hand.

Twice before Stewart has led the media. Back in January he was the first to tweak Obama as Bush 3 and remember the atmosphere where that took place:

As an aside, did you note the hesitancy of the audience to laugh at this stuff? They’re really so besotted, they think they’re not supposed to laugh or question President Obama, who Hollywood is declaring we must “pledge to serve.”

That was back in January when nobody would touch him. It was Stewart’s move that allowed what would eventually follow.

Next Came ACORN, While all the media was pretending the tapes didn’t exist Stewart Struck.

When you have a video on the Daily Show that complements Fox News AND Michelle Malkin vs the regular media then you know you have troubles.

Hey MSM when John Stewart isn’t going to go along you’d better start worrying.

And now for the 3rd Time John Stewart has struck on a story that the MSM has ignored or pooh poohed.

What does this mean? It means that the story that the MSM has ignored is now before the audience. It means that the customers of NBC & MSNBC that has made the green cause their own is openly scooped by a person who openly states that his business is “fake news”

This explains why so many on the left consider him a valuable news source. To them he is “breaking news”.

Stewart is biased, that is known but he is smarter than the networks. He is far sighted enough to know what was coming and got ahead of it, (at least compared with the MSM).

Stewart and his staff’s actions protect his reputation as a newsman & staff. Apparently their reputations are more significant than the reputations of Couric, Williams, et/al. Just think about it, a fake newsman is more worried about getting news out than the people who supposedly do it for a living.

If the media is not ashamed, it’s only because they have no pride or standards left.

It would be very funny if it wasn’t so sad.

No wonder the Huffpo is turning to skin…

…that’s where they eyeballs are

Researchers were conducting a study comparing the views of men in their 20s who had never been exposed to pornography with regular users.

But their project stumbled at the first hurdle when they failed to find a single man who had not been seen it.

“We started our research seeking men in their 20s who had never consumed pornography,” said Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse. “We couldn’t find any.”

I guess that means that Mary Katherine not withstanding Huffpo is on the right track.

The subject of this post comes directly from instapundit… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Update
: Can someone tell me how you can have a memeorandum thread started on the subject and not have instapundit on the blog list there?

…and I’m not going to bother to look it up. But Charles’ whole “instabeg” business certainly didn’t hurt my traffic. It quadrupled yesterday.

Jules Crittenden who is the source of a lot of those extra hits (thanks muchly) had this to say on the subject:

Some people ask why we do this … pay attention to loony tunes like Charles Johnson, Andrew Sullivan. I say because they are there, like mountains that loomed large in their world and are weirdly inverting themselves into crazy molehills. Also because, as GOV deftly illustrates, it is an entertaining exercise. Of course we open ourselves up to charges of Johnson obsession. No cruel “Johnson” jokes please.

The disease he is worried about is Bloggers Alzheimer’s aka Sullivan’s Syndrome. I was worried about catching it myself, then I looked at my hits…

Maybe Chucky should change sides more often.

There are role models and there is Rihanna:

While promoting her album, Rated R, in an interview with New York City radio station Hot 97, the singer admitted she was the woman in the naked photos, which were leaked earlier this year.

“They were for my boyfriend at the time,” Rihanna, 21, said, adding, “if you don’t send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him.”

As a former one myself I’m sure there are teenage boys all over the world that are cheering this advice.

As a FATHER, I’m just shaking my head in despair of how many kids are going to take this to heart. I get the feeling that very few of those teens will be found in line to get Sarah Palin book signed.

As a tech support guy I had to laugh at the next quoted sentence:

…discovering nude photographs of herself on the Internet – just weeks after a photo of her battered face also found its way online, allegedly having been leaked by the police department – the singer said, “trust me, I was [freaked out].

“It was the worst thing that could possibly ever happen to me. I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that [with the other photo leak] and then, when that came out, I thought, ‘Oh great, so now there’s nothing they don’t know about me and my private life,’ ” she said. “It was humiliating and it was embarrassing – especially my mom having to see that.”

It would seem to me those paragraphs are mutually exclusive. And I would remind you that in the digital age if you take pictures like that, they will not only be on the net, but they will be googled and oogled on the net for the rest of your life and beyond!

Do you want those photos to come up in when your name is googled for a jobsearch someday? Unless your goal in life is to try to generate hits for the huffington post I think not. I’d stay far away from this advice.

Rihanna you have earned this Nelson award.

Take my advice: don’t let your daughters become a Nelson award on some other blog.
