Jon Stewart Compares 'Daily Show' to Fox News: 'We're Both Expressions of Dissatisfaction' | Rolling Stone Movies

Jon Stewart Compares 'Daily Show' to Fox News: 'We're Both Expressions of Dissatisfaction' | Rolling Stone Movies: " Obama has been a disappointment to Stewart. "He ran on this idea that the system and the methodology are corrupt," he says. "It felt like the country was upset enough that he had the momentum needed to re-evaluate how business is done. Instead, when he got elected, he acted as though the system is so entrenched that it has to be managed rather than – I don't want to say decimated, because I'm not an anarchist or a nihilist. But I'm surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process."

That's not to imply that he thinks Obama has been a complete failure. "He's maintained an even keel and has not said, 'Fuck this, I quit,' and thrown anything at us," Stewart says. "I have yet to see him really curse, which I think is nice. He feels like the only president who begins every press conference with a heavy sigh. I think he was already kind of over us by the time he got into office. And now he's like, 'What the fuck is wrong with these people?'""
