Cory to pray for John Stewart
Shortly after the Desperate housewives issue cropped up and a lot of people were have a bit escapism on the topic. And hours after ABC TV, came out with a formal appology. Here came John Stewart on the Daily Show and in its irreverent style bashed and smashed and twisted away at the Icon’s of women leaders of three countries.
I blogged about it, and as expected and predicted – the issue produced a lot of anger here in Manila because one of those hit.
Was former President Aquino, I repost the point here from my own blogsite which seems to clogged up a bit from so many sudden hits.
Like I wrote before below, a doubt the show will apologize – its not in their character.
Perhaps the dignified and well loved former President puts it best, that she will pray for those who did the short satire.
John, and crew, be afraid – be very afraid, it seems when she asks God for something he listens.
And in his time, he answers.
But, considering the irreverent bunch at comedy central’s daily show and the attitude they show to everyone they bash. i doubt they will repent, or relent to seek anyones forgiveness. Such is TV, such is satire –
Here is my take on it.
Forget the ‘Desperate Housewives’ protest – Comedy Central was worse · October 4th, 2007
If ABC – Capitol Cities -Disney, had it’s taste of Pinoy anger and petitions over the ‘treatment’ of Philippine Doctors.
AOL – Time Warner and its outfit Comedy Central are about to get a bit ‘whacked ‘ I predict, for a slur versus three women world leaders.
So, no not once but twice fil-am’s are upset over TV shows in the U.S.A., and perhaps even in two other countries – as a comedy central report on the daily show, bashed three of the worlds leading Woman Leaders.
Comedy Central is after-all a Joke – patterned on a newscast – it is filled with Saturday Night Live – like skits – passed off as news. It has had spin-off’s and some success.
The show has been also sued, numerous times and had to apologize a lot went they go too far.
I think ‘all in good fun is via bad taste – the motto – or show mantra.
Names of those hit this time, were Golda Mier, Margarette Thatcher, and yes, the Philippines own Corazon Aquino.
