Episode Summary

Michael Moore
Tonight, director Michael Moore promotes his new documentary, Sicko.

Jon begins the show with another installment of "You Don't Know Dick". Tonight's little 'Dick nugget' is the fact that the Vice President's residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory is blocked out of Google Earth and pixelated. This is due to the fact that whatever Cheney touches, pixelates instantly.

Next, "Clusterf@#k to the White House". Jon reports on Giuliani's visit to Pat Robertson's Regent University and one of Giuliani's aid indicted on cocaine charges. Jon also reports on Former EPA Administrator Christie Todd Whitman who testified in front of a House subcommittee defending why she allowed 9/11 rescue workers to work in unsafe breathing conditions, proclaiming at the time that the air was safe to breathe.

Finally, Lewis Black in "Back in Black". Lewis talks about how right-wingers are trying to make the internet more conservative. Rupert Murdoch who owns Fox News is trying to control the left-wing liberal conspiracy machine by trying to buy it, namely trying to buy the parent company of The Wall Street Journal. Also, Wikipedia has its own conservative version called Conservapedia where it describes homosexuality as an immoral act. Youtube has spun off and been transformed by conservatives into QubeTV, which simply posts conservative video links off of Youtube like a video of Obama morphing into Osama bin Laden. Lewis ends his report telling us about a Daily Show spin-off show on Fox called the 1/2 Hour News Hour.moreless

  • Stewart pokes fun at the latest 9/11 scandal involving the EPA and then talks with Michael Moore about the health care crisis in his latest movies "Sicko"

    Probably what I remember best about this show is what Stewart showed about the EPA. The EPA is caught in a big scandal where they idiotically exposed a lot of workers during the 911 cleanup to asbestos. Now it's one thing to admit your mistakes but instead what the EPA administrator does during the hearing is lie, lie, lie. She says there was no danger and that everything was doing to "fight terrorism" (yep the same this administration says to excuse their crimes).

    I'am surprised and not surprised by this after 9/11 you really do see the boatload of mistakes people did and are now covering it up.

    The Michael Moore interview was entertaining. Moore did not "get caught lying" here. Although he does gear his movies toward an agenda, even the most ignorant person can't reject his latest movie "Sicko". "Sicko" basically examines the sham that is the health care system and how we have the WORST (or one of the worst) healthcare systems ever that really killed the working class. It's gotten to the point as Moore points in the interview that people will go to Canada and other countries for free healthcare system that our great rich country SHOULD BE providing (but doesn't). Hmmmm why is that? As Stewart and Moore look for the answer they find it easily, this country likes making bombs more than looking after it's citizens.

    All in all it was a great show and that Stuart Black segment poking fun at FoxNews was hilarious.moreless
  • It's sad people believe propaganda from people like Michael Moore (who has been caught lying to get his point out) and John Stewart, who is just a comedian.

    I can think for myself I watch different types of shows on politics to get all views not just the liberals propaganda views, not to mention isn't this comedy central? So why is it all politics, I won't deny all politicans are comical, but he only makes fun of one. Why is that?? Is he out of material, is he pandering to the people who can't think for themselves to get an easy audience by telling them what to think? I'm just asking, I used to love John Stewart he used to be funny, I guess he still is, but he had a variety of jokes, and they weren't one sided or trying to force opinions on people.moreless
