Jon Stewart Destroys Chris Matthews

Chris Matthews was taken to task last night for trying to promote his self-help book, which defines success by a cutthroat standard of how much you’re willing to exploit people and how well you’re able to lie about it. By over-emphasizing the capitalistic tendencies of advancement and self-interest as a respectable code of conduct, Stewart contends that Matthews simply tosses aside our innate moral principles which conflict with such a bankrupt philosophy. He even plainly states that Mathews’ book is a Machiavellian roadmap on how to ruthlessly attain power and take strategic control of your opponents above any other consideration. What a wonderful lesson on how to be a complete asshole.

Even better than the criticism itself is the fact that Stewart essentially prevented Matthews from achieving his own shallow concept of success by refusing to properly promote his book on the subject. For a more lighthearted segment from last night’s show, check out this bit titled Specularium on journalistic hackery.
