Friday Videos Love the Daily Show

This may be one of those videos that is only available in the US. But I’m having a hard time (a) testing that since, well, I can’t walk outside the US borders from Jersey, and (b) I can’t find a second link.

So, if this doesn’t play, please note that awesome reader Kristie took a photo of her TV at the optimum moment: Have a look (and thank God for camera phones) as the Daily Show mocks Fox News’ coverage of Obama’s interactions with Chavez by posting a picture of what Fox was really trying to say. Romance novel covers used as method of political commentary highlighting the use of homosexuality as an indication of moral depravity? I’m ok with that.

Note: if you are outside the US, and Hulu doesn’t work for you check out either of these two options, or try this link to Comedy Central’s page to see if the video plays. I’m sorry US-centric videos are so snobby. Thanks to @sleary on twitter for the link.

    I live in Japan, and the Hulu video didn’t work, but the link to Comedy Central’s page worked just fine. That was a highly entertaining video. Thanks for sharing it.

    Jon said “fanfiction”! Wonder if he’s beem reading some Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert slash in his spare time?

    Bloody Hulu. Sooooo tantalising (I have actually come across a way to make it work for me, since I have a domain hosted on US servers, but, eh, life’s too short).

    But, yep, CC clips work just fine!

    *Heavy sigh*  They are indeed snobby – none of the options worked for me *another sigh*

    My notification?  appeared43 – does this mean I have to try 43 times for it to appear?

    thank you so much for that…took my mind off of studying for a few minutes.  you gotta love Jon Stewert!  Fox News really needs to come to grips with the fact that the Republicans lost.

    I am seriously impressed that Kristie was that quick with the camera phone. I couldn’t have pulled that off.

    John Stewart and Stephen Colbert are my favorite evening entertainment. My roommate and I make an effort to watch them literally ever day they are on : )

    I’m in the Philippines, and none of the links and videos want me. Boo. I did see the snapshot though, and darn it, I think I may be missing a chunk of my life.

    Lori: I am seriously impressed that Kristie was that quick with the camera phone. I couldn’t have pulled that off.

    I feel the same way, haha.

    Canadian viewers can watch Daily Show and Colbert Report clips on the Comedy Network since we are blocked from Comedy Central. 
    Or if you have fancy proxy technology, you can use Hulu.

    I’m hacking and coughing – don’t say it! – but it was worth it as I watched this. OMG that was “hi”larious.

    The still picture looked fairly amusing. Which only makes me wonder what I missed, since I don’t live in the US or Canada, which means I am excluded from seeing anything from that video provider.

    And I was not in any state to sift through the websites at the ends of the “alternative links” to – maybe – find the video there :-(

    Capcha trouble34 – that video was trouble, indeed!

    The day Fox crossed from news reporting to fanfiction…. Ow. My sides hurt. As Nelson Muntz would say: HA-ha!
