  1. medical corporations advertising company (money makes money – its not bad).
    terribly when they spoke – "for save the tree should be killed  beaver " or  "for save Israelis should be killed Palestinians"  and the people glad supported thise Flash Mob.

  2. Daily Show confirms that the allergy season really does get worse every year, and tracks directly to CO2 count.

  3. Way to go, Comedy Central. Cut off the part where Jon finds out he was wrong.

  4. Am I the only one disappointed that they titled this "Along Came Pollen" and not "SNEEZ NUTS"?

  5. Thats just Big Pharma paying the writers guild or whoever writes the news, who then pay the media to say "Pollen Tsunami" as much as they can.

  6. Like I have always said, the people can be made to believe most anything, if they are told it enough times!

  7. Allergies suck right? Now imagine living with one 24/7, every day of the month, every month of the year, every year of your life, complete with loud, uncontrolable sneezing, throat-destroying coughing, and serious difficulty to breathe. Welcome to the not-so-amazing world of me!

  8. Jon Stewart, I'm going to miss you so damn much. You are the only one that knows how to call BULLSHIT on the media and politicians. I can just imagine what it is going to be like when there is no one around to keep these fucks honest.

  9. Wtf. They cut the best part? Where it's explained that the media is telling the truth and it's GLOBAL WARMING?

  10. American's come up with all the good names for disasters that are regular annoyances

  11. the Daily Show is not a news programme but he is satirising the so-called news channels for being sensationalist and focussing on irrelevant bullshit topics

  12. Sad to know that none of these reporters have an original thought in their heads! Omg….what the ?

  13. Why is everything in America so dramatic? We have allergy seasons too, but they never make it to the news.

  14. um the rest of that clip is really important, it shows that pollen season is getting worse, go look up the full episode

  15. Why does all the different mainstream media have exactly the same headlines… does a memo go out to them all…. they are like freakin' parrots…

  16. Amazing props to the Daily Show research time for finding all those "worst allergy season ever" clips for SEVEN years!

  17. Yea, the non-problem just gets worse and worse every year in the US.

    If you have allergy, see a doctor, get meds. I am sure people can handle themselves thank you very much CNN.

  18. This is a great segment. Kinda reminds me of the bit that Conan does on his show

  19. This is scraping the bottom of the barrel for news stories. I mean, come on, POLLEN TSUNAMI? Is there NOTHING else happening in the world?

  20. To be honest, 2014 was the worst allergy season in years, maybe even decades. Obviously no-one without allergies, including Jon Stewart, could understand how severe and incapacitating this issue is for allergetics.

  21. How do you find those stuff? Really? Have you digitized all audio from years of news footage and then you just search for 'worst allergic season', or you have people going through hours of footage to find the clips??? Really?

  22. Parroting bandwagon people…Listening to the American propaganda media just make me want to throw up… Disgusting people.

  23. FOX News said it's the worst allergy season in years. So I guess they finally admit global warming is a thing?

  24. Every year is the worst pollen season on record because as a result of global warming, every year for 9 years in a row has been the hottest year in record. Funny his clips of "worst allergy season ever" go to 2006, 9 years ago,

  25. The media is so fricking lame! If not for the work of The Daily Show I wouldn't have ever realized just how deep it goes. It's disgusting.

  26. To be fair, this clip doesn't include the rest of the segment, where a scientist explains that each year is the worst for pollen because of global warming. The full clip is on the website.

  27. They seem to be doing the same thing with heroin, every year there is a surge in heroin use and addiction and its purity seems to always be the highest since I don't know when. The only thing they change its the ethnicity of the criminals. Today it's the Mexicans, yesterday it was the Colombians, before that the Nigerians and before that the Chinese and before them the Italians.

  28. Geez.. it's really annoying that news stations just say the same shit ad nauseam, along with their lovely habit to turn a 3 minute story into a 30 minute show by teasing the headline 50 times before actually delivering the story. Thank God for the internet.

    But wtf is this shit? I know news stations also get pretty desperate when there's not actually anything happening, but this is pretty silly. Do they get a bunch of money from Claritin or something to just say the same bullshit about allergies all day to drive up sales?

  29. It sounds like all of the news comes from one source…..wonder where (or who) that is

  30. 2:09 – before it became a movie – The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger was a great guy book. I bought it for hubby and he enjoyed reading it. ^_^

  31. US the most stupid,ignorant,affraid,fat people in the world.

  32. Why do so many Americans have hay fever, here in Ireland I don't know a single person with it.

  33. Well Jon those are your liberal buddies selling fear and hate condemn them

  34. Being by the sea helps, unfortunately I can't be there all the time. It has hospitalised me plenty of times, it triggers asthma attacks for me. I hate summer

  35. one word gentlemen "pharmaceutical industry" well that were two words srr 😀

  36. I have that Botany textbook. Hahaha. Pollen tsunami is a real thing. Even got an A on that. XD

  37. Complain about lots of warm weather, in spring. That is something I'd expect to hear in an Onion video.

  38. Why is it that every time I pause a Jon Stewart video, his eye's are half closed and he looks baked as fuck?

  39. While I agree pollen tsunami is a dumb expression hayfever totally sucks balls and should not be made light of 😉

  40. HAHA, gotta love comedy central. But if you are truly looking for an allergy remedy. Check out some supplements.

  41. This reminds me of when I was 12.
    My 'classmates' (overly violent idiot bunch of people I shared a classroom with) were always complaining and threathening to start a fight with something or someone.
    So if they got agitated and said; 'What's up with the class today, where is the teacher?!' I'd offer to 'help.'
    And I'd then go to the principal, ask for the truth (which was usually bad.)
    Then I'd ask for the worse case scenario, that was still véry close to the first answer. And thát is what I'd report back.
    And then I'd watch them explode and curse and kick tables and freak out.

    I mean, I didn't do this very often..the scenario rarely happened like that. And I do know it's wrong nów.
    But I was 12 at the time. And it's amazing American news is the same as that classroom.

  42. Remember the good old days when we were allergic to plants and not our president? And our president wasn't allergic to common sense and the rule of law?! I'm so old I remember those days! I wish I describe for the future watchers of this show.

  43. hey it could be worst every year, it would just mean that it's getting worse.

  44. Do all mainstream media outlets in the US employ the same writers to come up with this bullshit rhetoric, or do they shamelessly rip off one another on a daily basis? These are the only two explanations as to why all the channels have exactly the same script all the time.

  45. The most accurate term is probably "plant bukakke", actually.

    –Dave, I blame 4chanophyll

  46. My sinuses do not appreciate having plant cum all up in there. Cant say i blame them

  47. Fuck dude, nobody can deliver the news with snark like Stewart. Miss you, buddy.

  48. Giving birth is always the Worst pain in the world. Until the next pregnancy. Causes a severe memory loss

  49. No, our news is not controlled by a few people. It's merely a coincidence that they all report from the same script. The Country has been sick for a few decades now. I was hoping it would recover and get well, but now it's on life support. I wonder what would happen if the 100 million eligible to cast a vote actually did so?

    But even then, voting is not enough. Voters have to be factually informed, which they would rather not be, evidently. Why else would people without healthcare vote for people against them having healthcare? Or Social Security. Or Food Stamps. Or Veteran care. Or, and on and on.

    Here's a little joke. A guy is elected to the Senate. He makes about 175k a year. Yeah, that's right. He has the cost of living in two places, one place probably with a family. Two, or three, or four years later that same guy owns assets in the millions. Shrewd money management? Come on man. The punchline is the joke is on us. The people lose out to the few, relatively speaking, at the top. Man, in general, just ain't gonna do right. If you think that's harsh, check out our history.

    Two cavemen lived a very long time ago. One had a nice cave, one had a small cramped cave. The only two people on Earth. Cramped cave guy plotted, stalked and killed the nice cave guy for his cave. But alas cramped cave guy committed suicide due to loneliness. And the wheels on the bus go round and round…….

  50. "Yes, yes, yes, the… Pollen Vortex, or as it is sometimes referred to… a garden." …I need to start calling my garden The Pollen Vortex.^^

  51. GOD DAMMIT NBC NEWS CALLED 2019 ALLERGY SEASON THE PERFECT STORM AGAIN JUST TONIGHT

    GOD DAMMIT

  52. You know what, this is what I watch to cleanse my palette. Because holy shit every talk show now is TRUMP THIS, TRUMP THAT! My god talk about something else please. We know Trump sucks.

  53. Each year in September/October the news cries, “global warming” – maybe it’s just hurricane season

  54. This reminds me of the time they were announcing some swarm of some bug or other on the east coast, i forgot the bug's name. They went on about it for two months, really created a panic, and then when the moment came I literally saw like two bugs one day that I wouldn't have noticed otherwise and that was all.

  55. I miss Jon Stewart so much, wish he comes back. I don’t find Trevor Noah funny at all.

  56. Last Week Tonight is the closest descendant of The daily Show, only at a further stage of development.

  57. Government is slowly killing us, they just want you to be okay with it, so every year… Random ailments and allergies are worse then last year…. Manufacturing consent is not just for war mongerers
