Thank you -- there's a lot of.
He was blacklisted him from The Daily Show and when he released an email from one of the show's producers that expose the comedy news programs policy toward conservative -- It cost him a manager.
Fox News contributor and conservative comedian Stephen Crowder joins me now -- -- well.
Plus woman -- haven't you looked lovely.
Well thank you I try my very best I -- talk about a lot of credit for you that's that's even better that's why you think -- look okay because you can't seem.
There was -- an incident recently that happened where.
You were sent an email I believe this is right from the daily show's producer.
And they said that you probably weren't gonna be on the show because they really didn't want conservative pundits he release that email.
As part of sort of saying look there there's a bias here.
-- the real thing here is of course the macro picture that Hollywood systematically shuts down.
Voices of dissent Upjohn fortunately -- Chris Wallace.
You -- Hollywood tends to be liberal but it's not they're motivating force but an entire industry of people being almost completely on one side of the spectrum and follow lock step at a certain point.
That's no longer happenstance it's by design and I would argue by design from people like Jon -- and the folks -- Viacom and and Hollywood as a whole.
-- seeded -- on The Daily Show many times -- John sort of had -- I think only John McCain has been on the show more than meets conservative or liberal in terms of the guest host clearly.
He has conservatives he's had you know David Barton recently.
Certainly a strong conservative a Christian.
So I know he has conservatives were they angry that you -- a conservative angry that you release that email.
What is what that the trigger that you think created this situation where your manager told you I am done with you.
Well -- -- were upset that that I have been afforded the email on because it was sent my manager privately.
And there's an unwritten rule that you don't do that but there's also an unwritten rule that as a conservative comedian you don't work in this industry.
I'm so I donors and of course there are plenty of onetime conservative guests on The Daily Show but when you look at the -- really have to account ultimately.
For -- -- being based the criteria not an ability but on a point of view more specifically excluding points of view so.
That combined with the fact that.
That full time staff and in people who work with the show regularly we've seen many openly unabashedly liberal.
Contributors -- to sort show.
And I have yet to see won a regular person over there who's as boldly conservative so.
That combined of course with the audio that was in the video omni -- critics -- -- to believe that it's it's it's probably policy over that The Daily Show.
You mentioned that you think this is it a really.
Small part of a bigger picture.
-- for conservatives it's hard to break into the entertainment business as a comedian how many places tell you that look you're funny.
But -- from your -- for conservatives and and we just don't.
Make a platform for guys like you.
-- they rarely say I'm funny mister Powell had.
Seattle it's just laugh they thought you were funny.
But I should be hired as a Grand Rapids today.
But but if they give me the -- -- -- -- and hook -- up on stage generally it's important here to note that it's it's not about Jon Stewart being -- so all the liberal comedian leans left in other news water -- -- and -- he's had -- -- If it were just.
I'm John -- would claim community community as he always does the problem is when someone's not honest about their agenda.
As a comedian we've seen when faced with with going for just a funny or forwarding or protecting the leftist agenda of the day.
He's often opted for the latter so he said that his his comedy -- informed by ideological worldview.
But it's much more than that the show was used as a pulpit to propaganda guys that -- -- and ultimately -- at the comedian a comedy sometimes takes a back.
See to it.
And and I think that's dishonest.
Well -- I appreciate your being here and by the way you know.
As far as propaganda -- admit you know I'd get my point of view out there as much as I can right.
And and we'll continue to by the way -- so you'll know you played very well with our audience you should come back into our -- -- -- -- -- -- One -- it's -- you know listen we're not asking for much it's not me but a conservative community.
What they want from Jon Stewart are small things simple things -- admit.
That's not that you have an agenda that -- user should afford it and then you know issue a letter of banks.
To -- here and you bright Barger Ben for allowing him to come out of the closet and own who we truly is not a partisan leftist -- simple -- little thing.
Little things like that I'm sure will happen this week Stephen -- thank you very much.
