John Gibson is an Asshole - Part I

15 August 2007

Nine days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, comedian Jon Stewart came back on the air and delivered an emotional monologue, detailing his thoughts and sympathies. However, former gossip columnist John Gibson recently used his talk radio platform to publicly mock Stewart for this, and to question both his sincerity and patriotism.

Here is the audio of John Gibson being an asshole: .

Once the audio had spread around the internet, martyr John Gibson had this to say for himself: "The war on Gibson is real. It is pursued every day by the people who just can't abide what you hear on this radio program."

Gibson elaborated:

"GIBSON: Well, he was all teary and sobby, and, you know, I -- at the time, it's -- I believed him. At the time, I said, 'Man, you know, that came from the heart.' But now after listening to --

ANGRY RICH: Six years --

GIBSON: -- six years of him attacking everything that's been done to make sure there isn't another one of those, you just got to wonder.

ANGRY RICH: You got to conclude he's a phony.

GIBSON: Well, that's what I concluded, and we're being attacked for coming to that conclusion."

I don't really understand the argument that this somehow makes Jon Stewart a phony. First of all, you can clearly tell that what he's saying is sincere. Second of all, he didn't say anything whatsoever to contradict what he's said since (indeed, it all supports what he has said since). Therefore, the only logical explanation is that John Gibson is an asshole.

Oh yeah, and John Gibson recently hosted and defended a man who argues that "another 9/11 would help America." Gibson added, "I think it would take a lot of dead people to wake America up."

...I wonder if Bill O'Reilly will compare Gibson to Nazis, the KKK, Stalin, Mussolini, Osama Bin Laden, etc.
