Someone needs to let Jon Stewart know he doesn't have to worry about running out of material on either Chris Christie or the beltway Villagers in our corporate media any time soon.
February 3, 2014

After first taking a few shots at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and his attacks on former high school friend David Wildstein, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart lamented the decision by many of the pundits in our media to treat Christie with kid gloves.

Stewart Blasts Media for ‘Measured’ Response to Christie: ‘Where’s Your Rush to Judgement?’:

Stewart surveyed the media’s reaction and found that most were advising caution before rushing to judgment on Christie. “Where’s your rush to judgment?” the Comedy Central host asked. “Where’s the immediate eulogies for his political career? The swift, impatient justice in the court of public opinion? You know? The news.”

“If this measured approach thing catches on, I’m out of a f***ing job,” Stewart concluded.

"Measured" isn't the description I'd use. Ass covering is more like it since so many of them are enamored with Christie. Don't worry Jon. You're not going to run out of material on Christie or the beltway Villagers in our corporate media any time soon, no matter how much cover they're trying to give him right now.
