The Catholic League launched a boycott against the sponsors of the The Daily Show
in April over a segment that featured “vagina mangers.” In the segment,
which aired on April 16, Stewart mocked Fox News for criticizing the
phrase “war on women,” even though the network promoted the phrase “war
on Christmas” for years.


“What
can women do to generate the same sense of outrage from Fox as” the
alleged war on Christmas, Stewart asked. “Perhaps they could play into
the theme. Maybe women could protect their reproductive organs from
unwanted medical intrusions with vagina mangers.”


A picture of a nude women with a nativity scene ornament between her
leg appeared beside Stewart, which Donohue described as an
“unprecedented vulgar assault on Christians.”


The Catholic League is hoping to pressure Kellog’s into pulling its sponsorship of Stewart as well.

    It is disturbing that Catholics are so anti woman that even a Photoshop picture of a manger near a vagina upsets them, and they declare a "war on humor" rather than noting the segment was right on

    AS MUCH as this offends me, I am for freedom of speech. There is always the "clicker" or remote control. I do not like other people telling me what I can watch. He is on late at night so there is no problem protecting children.

    It was over the line, he shouldn't have put that picture up simply because it was offensive but I don't think it should be cancelled. If people were offended, they can individually choose to not watch it. I have been highly offended by some of the things he says in the past, but I don't go on a rampage trying to boycott sponsors into pulling their ads because of it. I see why christians are offended, I really do but frankly they do and say alot of offensive things themselves. Live and let live, people.

    How anyone could interpret this as an attack on Christians baffles me. Just because Stewart is Jewish doesn't mean he hates Christians. People need to get a grip.

    And what does that have to do with Delta pulling adds? They are free to do as they choose with their money. Personally, if catholics criticized me I would take it that I am doing the right thing. I like John Stewart and freedom of speech is something I fully support. If I were him, I would go after Delta just for grins...

    That decision is up to the network. If enough advertisers pull their ads, the network will cancel the show. It's just business, not censorship.

    I think he's a racist, sexist, sexualist (a word I'm trying to make replace "homophobic", as it is more sociologically accurate), self-centered, angry, hateful lying gas-bag; who would have been a much greater benefit to the world as stem-cells.
    That's why I don't listen to him.

    Tell you what: you go ahead and get your news from ignorant, misleading right-wing tabloidesque organizations like Fox News and Rush LImbaugh; and I'll just keep being informed about what's actually going on. Just using the term "lame stream" tells me that you're an idiot. Run along now.

    I personally wouldn't know, since, outside the odd speech at an event or whatever, I've not actually heard much of what he's said since the Clinton years.

    He never shocked me in his heyday of the early '90s, but that doesn't matter. Relegation to "talk radio" surely makes him a minimal influence, anymore. Yet folks like yourself keep bringing him up, as if he's some horrible corrupter of the innocent.

    Jon Stewart seems to fit that bill much more these days. He's got a highly rated show on national television aimed at the most impressionable pothead kids on the planet, after all.
  • elijahin24 Mantic 2012/05/08 20:42:19

    I don't think either one is corrupting, and I wasn't the one who brought him up. Mike did. I just responded. I like Jon and Bill. I admit that Bill can be an ass-hat at times; but I enjoy him, just as I'm sure that there are a few Conservatives out there who recognize Rush's ass-hattery, but enjoy him anyway. The rule is very simple: If you don't like it, watch/listen to something else.

    Fine by me, so far as my personal peace of mind. But then, I've no problem with boycotts against advertisers, either.

    It's merely the difference between "free speech" and "subsidized speech." The Bill of Rights does not guarantee that juvenile antics trying to impress the supposed "money" demographic won't cost you advertisers who do not serve that demographic exclusively.

    One day soon by the looks of him, Jon Stewart is going to seem too old and serious to appeal to that demographic anymore. Then he, too, may wind up stuck on the radio. ;)

    Oh, on the comparison of Limbaugh to Mahr, I think you are in apples and oranges territory. Mahr is like Coulter, having no real conviction to much of what he says and being an overblown ass for effect. Limbaugh was more of the true believer variety.

    I think people are going to still be saying that about him in 20 years.

    Boycotts are fine. Usually not that effective unless the person says something as offensive as the things that Rush or Glenn Beck have said; but you're certainly within your rights to boycott all you like. The First Amendment gives anyone the right to say anything. It doesn't protect them from the backlash that their words may provoke, or the consequences of that backlash. Still I think this is a non-issue in the grand scheme of things; and Jon Stewart will come through unscathed.
