Some say comedic kingpin Jay Leno should enter politics. Ronald Reagan did it — along with other stars such as Sonny Bono, Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
For Jay Leno, Bill Clinton was the comic gift who kept giving. By one exhaustive count, the outgoing "Tonight" show host made 4,607 jokes at the former president's expense during his time on the program.
Common sense could be the operative motto for the Grand Old Party as it seeks to articulate a viable message and identify appropriate standard bearers while the 2014 midterm season fires up and rattles down the campaign trail. The clock is ticking. But the thinkers are thinking.
Is Jay Leno a Republican or a Democrat? We may never know the answer to that question. But one thing is for sure. The outgoing NBC "Tonight Show" host beat up on Democrats more than he did Republicans, at least according to the numbers. Yes, there's a study, released just as Mr. Leno exits his longtime late night perch.
Jay Leno's top targets for jokes during his time at the "Tonight" show, through Jan. 24, as compiled by the Center for Media and Public Affairs.
President Barack Obama, the joke's on you. A study of gags by late-night comics during the first half of the year found an abrupt change from 2012. Now Obama and Democrats are providing the lion's share of punch lines.
Rick Santorum's campaign was undermined by a wave of bad press, while Mitt Romney's coverage improved over time," says a new analysis of 483 evening news broadcasts covering the Republican primaries by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University.
How much do we mock our politicians? Much. Rough math reveals that late night comedians generate well over 100 jokes a week about leaders and lawmakers.
There is talk that his hair is speckled with worrisome gray and that the daily tide of public opinion polls is a welter of White House negativity. Though the hope-and-change era appears to have waned in the U.S., it's still bright elsewhere, apparently.
How long will it take before Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal retires and turns up on cable TV as a proverbial "Pentagon pundit"?
An analysis of black talk radio released today by the Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) may reveal insight into the hearts and minds of the nation's 16 million registered black voters.
