Fandom Musings : "It would be hard to top this group in terms of absurdity" Ooooooh poor John. If only you knew what 2016 had in store.

Emmanuel Morrell : I have never seen a worse verbal ass whooping given to two grown men. LOL

Sergey Malovatov : Jon Stewart carried out his mission brilliantly! He led two CNN nitwit puffed-up clowns into a trap and had their dilettante political show closed shortly thereafter.

Gabriel Blomkamp : I feel like if anything he went too easy on these guys.

Aarion Lynch : God, John destroyed them.

OriginalNightshade : And tragically lost are the lesson & Messages Stewart was trying to teach you all, in a way that would hold your Attention because instead of LISTENING to the message you're all focused on who "WON" THEY did & Today we have "Alternate Facts" & they're trying to turn THOSE into Alternate REALITY SMH Don't bother to rage insult blah blah blah I wont be here to Listen-BIGGER fish to fry.

Grey : Tucker Carlson never wore a bowtie after this interview again

Twisted Operator : When a comedy shows is more influential to a generation than a actual political show..

LO AD : The sad thing is Jon advocates platforms of news that invite more than a quick snippet. His hatred of this show was that it was writers for two TV personalities presenting a dichotomy on literally any viewpoint when any one aware of critical thought should have an issue with that. Y'all defending this show & criticizing Steward (or Lebowitz or whoever he is); are buying into the Us vs Them of Left vs Right when he simply hates both people he's at the table with.

2MorrowsPeople : Jesus, Jon went in dry on them. Lol

Harry Ortiz : Tucker, you craven dunce!

Bushdoctorbeats : Still up-to-date I get more (relevant) news from comedic news shows than these idiots at whatever other news tv-program...

Craig Perkey : How innocent we were in 2004.

Heelin Off24/7 : this was savage before savage was savage

A G : see everyone saying welcome to 2018/2019...shit it only took till 2008.

Fred Flinstone : this episode of the show radicalized Tucker

shingshongshamalama : Good god, Tucker Carlson just cannot let anyone else talk.

Weathers95 : I've always loved Jon but I think if he was this concerned about the media hurting the country then he should have transitioned into a more serious news outlet for himself. The brilliance that he expressed here is a valuable resource for a better news outlet.

TBE 50—0 : Tucker Carlson sounds like an effeminate, rich teenager

Wabajak13 : The guys trying to be comedians in front of an expert's just embarrassing. Trying to dismiss all of the cogent points he is making with a "I thought you were going to be funny". How sucked into the media machine do you have to be to not realize how idiotic you sound?

andYz00m : "OH, THAT WENT GREAT!"

James Ratliff : I wonder if Jon would do the same thing he did for Crossfire for Fox? If you work for Fox you are a traitor to your country.

JeevesReturns : Anyone ever watch AHS? Tucker is Dandy.

Cyrill Gebert : Pretty much impossible to hit Jon Stewart. He's a bit like the Muhammad Ali of Comedy.

DedifferentiatedPeen : timeless

drizzitdude : Dude the puppets making crank phone calls argument left me dying. They didn’t get they were debating a comedian at all.

Rick Higson : Nice!

sparksoffyou : 7:38 Just you wait, Jon.

Frau V : You don’t know the meaning of the word ‘implodes’, Fucker Carlson.

be it : It's like nothing has changed...

Kartyman550 : Whats happening here?

s h a d ø w b a n n e d : Vaporized.

Böbb : I thought he won when I saw this several years ago. Rewatching this some years later I've changed my mind, john stewart is just being hypocritical and an asshole. He ducks for cover under the guise of "'im just a comedian lol" whenever he feels like

Jah Oose : I was actually able to watch this on the day it aired, I'll never forget it. He went on in October and by January, it was cancelled. He pretty much single-handedly _dropped_ that show. I'd always liked him, but Jon Stewart forever gained my respect that day.

erfan chowdhury : ownageeee

LE R : Gotta love Jon Stewart - buts through the bs with a razor. I for one miss him.

obi wan kenobi : Somewhere there is a video titled John Stewart Gets Owned by Tucker Carlson........ same video

charly77ish : We don't hold there feet to the fire I like how he walked right into that one lol

Steve C : "I'm gonna come on and be serious but also I'm just kidding so you can't criticize me."

rishnix : If Jon Stewart is using the excuse that what he says shouldn't be taken seriously because his show was a comedy, then why should anyone take what he's saying here seriously?

Zapruder1984 : Stewart - "You hacks are hurting the country! And you should take me seriously when I say that, because I'm just a comedian!"

Dan Lyons : Does Jon Stewart really think he's not a hard left wing Liberal? He really pretends to be non biased doesn't he?

Denverb : Renee from Texas owns Jon Stewart. He can't even make eye contact with anyone after the ownage.

Tom Peterson : Tucker was 100% right in this. Jon claims cries comedian over any criticism. Now Trucker is part of the counter culture and Jon is a remnant.

Razlo5000 : I remember seeing this exchange back when I was a fan of the daily show. In fact, I never missed an episode. I was cheering John Stewart on and thought he demolished Tucker in this. Today, I can see what a joke John Stewart was. Not to say I support Tucker or the other guy, but Stewart is just a real classless jackass. The man did a clown nose on, clown nose off routine to dupe an entire generation of millennials into sharing his political views. Stewart made political hit pieces in-between comedy sketches. He fawned over the leftists that came on his show and heavily edited his exchanges with rightists to make them look like fools. Anytime somebody called him on that, John LEBOWITZ retreated to: "hey, I'm just a clown fellas. Yuk yuk!" What a coward. I'm glad I grew smart enough to reject the crap he filled my head with.

Richard Chase III : Funny hearing a guy(jon leibowitz) who is hid behind a fake stage name(jon stewart) talk about honesty and integrity.

Túlio Fernandes : Jon Stewart is such a pain in the ass. He speaks a lot and says nothing while cracking some jokes and lecturing people on being serious.

michael gross : Jon Stewart is acting so fake! Like a couple of you guys said, he switches from comedy to politics when it best suits him.

Prexxuss : John Stewart is such a phony. Is is no different than them except he hides behind "comedy" so that later he can say "oh but my show is a comedy show". gtfo
