Jon Stewart Blasts ’60 Minutes’ For ‘Sort Of Acknowledging’ Benghazi Story Was ‘Total Bullsh*t’

The Huffington Post

On Monday, Jon Stewart dove into the scandal rocking CBS News, and what he called the “meh culpa” offered by “60 Minutes” in response to learning the key figure in its Benghazi story was lying.

Stewart mock-sympathized with what a “pain in the ass” it is to have to ask “Is this true?” before going to broadcast, and then went off after rolling a clip of Lara Logan revealing that Dylan Davies had lied to CBS:

“What? If you can not trust an international mercenary existing in the netherworld ‘twixt assassin and bounty hunter, whose very livelihood is predicated on the flexible morality needed to survive in the chaos and lawlessness of failed nations, who can you trust?”

But CBS isn’t the only one having to deal with this mess; Jon Stewart’s favorite southern gentleman (and accent) Lindsey Graham has some tough questions to answer now, too.

Bill Maher Slams Paul Ryan, Rand Paul For ‘Ruining’ Libertarianism: ‘I Didn’t Go Nuts, This Movement Did’ (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post

On this week’s episode of “Real Time,” Bill Maher used his final “New Rule” of the night to take on Libertarianism and the conservatives whose obsessions with Ayn Rand have “ruined” the political philosophy for him.

Once a supporter of Libertarianism and its views on government intervention, Maher explained why he thinks politicians such as Paul Ryan and Rand Paul are “intellectually stuck in their teen years” and have turned a once promising movement into a free market-obsessed, “nanny state”-fearing delusion.

Maher went on to defend his new views on Libertarianism by mocking the party’s tendency to reject government services even when they are arguably very useful:

“To everyone who keeps trying to shame me about abandoning my Libertarian moorings, my message is this: I didn’t go nuts, this movement did. Like when you see a stop light, your reaction should be ‘Great, an easy way to ensure we don’t all crash into each other,’ not, ‘How dare the government tell me when I can and cannot go!”

Watch the full segment above.
