Fugelsang needs his own show again; a progressive without borders

Comedian John Fugelsang went on CNN’s Reliable Sources to discuss who would replace Jon Stewart as the counterpoint to mainstream, especially conservative, media outlets.

Host Brian Stelter nominated Fugelsang to take over The Daily Show after Stewart leaves.

“The idea that Jon Stewart did only liberal-oriented stuff is wrong,” said journalist Carl Bernstein. “He went after the left. He went after political correctness.”

“It is wrong,” said Fugelsang. “However … that is liberal. Liberal is not defending the Democratic Party. It’s going after all sides and power and questioning all authority.”

1. He's exactly the right choice...Comedy Central has taken the position that the Court Jester


served in Medieval Times. Only he could tweak the King's beard with inconvenient truth...and the King would laugh because it was always "a joke" but everybody knew that it wasn't.
