Zitate Jon Stewart

„I'm not going to be your monkey.“

—  Jon Stewart

Crossfire Appearance (2004)
Kontext: Stewart: You have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.

„Peoples' senses of humor tend to go about as far as their ideology.“

—  Jon Stewart

On whether The Daily Show is liberal.
Hartford Advocate Interview (2008)
Kontext: I think the metric by which television is considered liberal is literally based on the metric of liberalism in each person's soul. Peoples' senses of humor tend to go about as far as their ideology.

„The country’s 24 hour political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems but its existence makes solving them that much harder.“

—  Jon Stewart

Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear closing speech (2010)
Kontext: The country’s 24 hour political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems but its existence makes solving them that much harder.  The press can hold its magnifying glass up to our problems bringing them into focus, illuminating issues heretofore unseen or they can use that magnifying glass to light ants on fire and then perhaps host a week of shows on the sudden, unexpected dangerous flaming ant epidemic. 
If we amplify everything we hear nothing.

„Other forms of Judaism dispute this claim, although it does explain certain passages in the first Torah, such as, "I'm sorry, am I boring you?" and "What do you like better, Moses, Lord Almighty or Big Hoohah?"“

„It should have been a crowning moment, but I clearly remember thinking, What am I doing here? I hate crowds.“

—  Jon Stewart, buch Naked Pictures of Famous People

Naked Pictures of Famous People (1998)
Kontext: Hitler: I'm not going to lie to you, it took a while. There were moments all along where I knew something was wrong. I remember one time... I think it was in Munich. We were having a rally. 100,000 people all chanting my name. The bonfires were going. The whole shebang. It should have been a crowning moment, but I clearly remember thinking, What am I doing here? I hate crowds.

„Yeah, okay, maybe they're not fair and balanced, but CNN used to have the slogan "You Can Depend on CNN". Guess what? I watch it, no you can't.“

—  Jon Stewart

C-SPAN interview, October 14, 2004
Kontext: Everybody wrings their hands about Fox News. You know, "fair and balanced? Why, that's snide!" Yeah, okay, maybe they're not fair and balanced, but CNN used to have the slogan "You Can Depend on CNN". Guess what? I watch it, no you can't. So what's the difference?

Kontext: We are not warriors in anyone's army. And that is not trying to be self-deprecating. I'm proud of what we do. I really like these two shows. I like making 'em. I like watching them. I'm really proud of them. But I understand their place. I don't view us as people who lead social movements.

„There are women here who can barely afford enough gown to cover their breasts.“

—  Jon Stewart

The 78th Academy Awards (2006)

„If the presidency is the head of the American body politic, Congress is its gastrointestinal tract.“

—  Jon Stewart, buch America

America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction (2004)
