The Daily Show’s Fabuloso Response to Coca Cola #SpeakAmerican Ignorance

Leave it to The Daily Show to offer one of the best responses we have seen about the whole Coca Cola ad.

Our only beef? You could have added a Spanish speaker in the response, but still, it does speak to the core issue here, one that has been too common.

MUST WATCH from The Daily Show: Jon Stewart Takes on Gun Control

Once again Jon Stewart is spot on.

Part one of the Scapegoat Hunter sets the stage.

Part two drives the point home with pure brilliance:

“Technology has democratized violence.”

“What is really going on here?”

“So this is what is: their paranoid fear of a possible dystopic future prevents us from addressing our actual dystopic present.”

Last Night on @TheDailyShow: Stewart and Co. Weigh In On “Voter Fraud”

Last night, The Daily Show joined in on the "voter fraud" issue: "Conservatives and their media division are up in arms over voter fraud, coincidentally almost entirely in swing states with Republican-controlled legislatures."

Next up: leash laws for unicorns. Thank you, Jon Stewart.

TUSD Board Member Michael Hicks Appears on Tucson Radio and Says Daily Show Misconstrued His Comments

When you have problems, you tell your story to friends.

On Wednesday, Tucson Unified School District school board member Michael Hicks, who is facing a backlash for his appearance on The Daily Show this week and his views on the district's ban on Mexican American Studies, gave a radio interview to local Tucson radio. In the end, it was 10 minutes of fluff. Softball questions and easy answers.

Hicks said that he regretted making an appearance on The Daily Show, that the entire interview was 3.5 hours long, that he was "naive" about The Daily Show's intentions and that he wanted to help people in any way he could. He claimed that The Daily Show and some bloggers are destructive. He claims that his family is getting harassed, that he is getting phone calls at 4 in the morning, and said that the people are taking this too seriously.

In addition, Hicks said that he has nothing to apologize for his interview but he should apologize for what The Daily Show did to his interview. He said that The Daily Show blatantly "spliced" the show and said that people thought it was real and that he didn't say those things.

"Of course I know who Rosa Parks is," Hicks said. "It was an unfortunate thing, I am owning up to it." Hicks went on to say that the entire "Rosa Clark" piece was fabricated by The Daily Show. 

"I did not say the things in the sequence that [The Daily Show] is portraying." Hicks is standing by his word that The Daily Show misrepresented his comments."

"I am not going to allow bullies to bully me."

Hicks is currently facing a recall effort for his seat on the TUSD board.

In Email to the Rebels, TUSD School Board Member Hicks Slams @TheDailyShow Segment on Ethnic Studies

The following is the email response we received from Tucson Unified School District school board member Michael Hicks regarding his appearance with Al Madrigal on last night's The Daily Show, which covered the recent controversy surrounding the ban on Mexican American Studies in Tucson:

 

With all due respect, the Daily Show is a money making satirical show. It is not a news show. They do not present the complete remarks of their guests. They slice and dice footage to serve their need to entertain.

I went on this show to talk about the Mexican American Studies (MAS) classes. I was mislead by the "reporter" and was told that they were interested in a real interview. It was nothing of the sort.

It is unfortunate that the Daily Show opted to amuse rather than inform.

And for the record, you can see where they spliced my comments in several areas during this segment. I can assure you that my statements were taken out of context Many of my answers were altered to suit their agenda.

What I find more troubling is that there are those who will believe that what they saw on the Daily Show is accurate and complete news.

These individuals will then most likely base their judgments on inaccurate information designed specifically to support the view of Daily Show producers.

Real children were being exploited, and the producers of the Daily Show chose to ignore that.

TUSD School Board Member Hicks Responds on Facebook to @TheDailyShow Segment About Ethnic Studies

After a stunning and strange Daily Show interview with Al Madrigal, Tucson Unified School District school board member Michael Hicks reportedly responded via a Facebook post that was shared by Wenona Benally Baldenegro, who is running for Congress in Tucson. This is what Baldenegro posted on her personal Facebook page from a post that Hicks posted on his Facebook:

 

"As you know (and I know now) the Daily Show is a satirical news show and thus does not always represent the true remarks their guest make. 

I went on this show to talk about the Mexican American Studies (MAS) classes. What I believed to be would be a true interview ended up being nothing of the sort. It is unfortunate that the Daily show opted to amuse rather then inform."

We did reach out to Hicks this morning via email to request an interview.
