The corporate press won’t let go of its Orange Man Bad narrative.
Donald Trump still dominates the news coverage of the so-called mainstream media.
But Jon Stewart went on CNN and clowned an anti-Trump host in one sentence.
Comedian Jon Stewart is back after a years-long hiatus from the political comedy scene.
Since hosting The Daily Show, the dull Trevor Noah has replaced him, and show correspondents Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee have both launched their own unfunny late night shows.
During a recent reunion appearance on Colbert’s show, Stewart humorously made the case that the COVID lab leak hypothesis is most likely correct.

Prior to that point, even mentioning the lab leak theory drew condemnation from the corporate press.
Stewart recently appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper, and called out the network for obsessive Orange Man Bad coverage.
“I think we make a mistake focusing this all on Donald Trump as though he’s, I don’t know, Magneto and some incredible supervillain that has changed the very nature and temperature of the United States…He’s just been an effective vessel.”
Legacy media was quickly dying without Trump, and he pumped life back into institutions like CNN and The New York Times.
They can’t help but talk about Trump, and each time they talk about him, the rhetoric gets more apocalyptic and ridiculous.
The consequence has been that more people have awakened to the dishonesty of the corporate press.
Trust in the media is at an all-time low, and Americans are beginning to have second thoughts about Trump.
MSNBC personality Donny Deutsch even admitted that Trump would beat Joe Biden if they both ran in 2024.
“I don’t know that autocracy is purely the domain of Donald Trump. I think that we all have a bit of a tendency to grant amnesty to people that are doing things that we would prefer, even if that means that they’re slightly undemocratic.”
Stewart’s point has also been expressed by liberal journalists like Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi.
Both have correctly analyzed that the reaction to Trump is far worse than anything Trump did in the White House.
The Orange Man Bad hysteria has been used as a justification to spy on Americans, lie in the press, and censor stories and individuals on social media to influence elections.
