MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]WE'RE BACK.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

OUR GUEST TONIGHT OH, SHE PUTSTHE HUFF IN HUFFPO.

ARIANNA HUFFINGTON WILL BE OURGUEST TONIGHT.

BUT FIRST, FOR WEEKS THE BIGSTORY HAS BEEN THE MISSING

MALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT. TODAYSATELLITE DATA SEEMS TO

HAVE CONFIRMED THE WORST. ITHINK WE ALL FEARED THIS STORY

WOULD END IN TRAGEDY, AND SOEARLY ON WE TURNED TO THE NEWS

MEDIA FOR A SENSE OF SOBERCLARITY.

>> AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS INSOUTHEAST ASIA HAVE LOST CONTACT

WITH A JUMBO JET CARRYING 239PEOPLE.

WE'RE OF COURSE DOING ALLWE CAN TO GET AS MANY DETAILS AS

POSSIBLE FROM OUR SOURCESAROUND THE REGIONS AND THEWORLD.

>> Jon: THIS ACCURATE ANDHUMBLE ASSESSMENT FROM CNN UNTIL

THEY REALIZED OH, (bleep) WEHAVE 23 HOURS AND 59 MINUTES

LEFT TO FILL.

[ LAUGHTER ](bleep) IT LET'S GO NUTS.

AND THEY DID.

WITH EVERYTHING INTHEIR BAG OF TRICKS.

GIANT FLOOR MAPS.

BIG FAKE AIRPLANES.

LITTLE FAKE AIRPLANES.

HOLOGRAPHIC AIRPLANES.

NO AIRPLANE DETAIL LEFTUNSPOKEN.

>> A PLANE LIKE THIS IS AROUND61, 62 METERS END TO END.

61-62 SIDE TO SIDE.

>> Jon: YOU ARE TELLING THEMWHAT A PLANE LOOKS LIKE?

[LAUGHTER]DID YOU FORGET WHO WATCHES CNN?

YOU COULD TELL 90% OF YOURVIEWERS LOOK OUT THE AIRPORT

WINDOW AT THE PLANE THEY AREABOUT TO GET ON.

[ LAUGHTER ]BUT, OF COURSE --

[ APPLAUSE ]THERE'S A SAYING CNN IS POPULAR

AT AIRPORTS.

[LAUGHTER]OF COURSE MAN DOES NOT LIVE BYHOLOGRAM

ALONE. GIVE ME A SIX BOX,FLANK IT, NOW STUPID ME.

>> PEOPLE ARE ASKING ABOUT BLACK

HOLES AND ON AND ON AND ON ANDALL OF THESE CONSPIRACY THEORIES

NOHA SAYS WHAT ELSE CAN YOUTHINK? BLACK HOLE? BERMUDA

TRIANGLE? AND THEN DEJI SAYSIT'S JUST LIKE THE MOVIE LOST.

I KNOW IT'S PREPOSTEROUS BUT ISIT PREPOSTEROUS, DO YOU THINK,

MARY?

[LAUGHTER]>> Jon: DON'T ANSWER, MARY

IT'S A TRAP.

[ LAUGHTER ] SOME SORT OFWEIRD BERMUDA TRIANGLE

OF LOGIC WHERE QUESTIONS AREANSWERED BEFORE THEY ARE ASKED.

[LAUGHTER]>> A SMALL BLACK HOLE WOULD SUCK

IN OUR ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

SO WE KNOW IT'S NOT THAT.

THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE IS OFTENWEATHER AND LOST IS A TV SHOW.

[ LAUGHTER ]>> Jon: WELL --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]-- I KNOW IT'S A TV SHOW BUT IS

IT, MARY?

[LAUGHTER]LOOK AT ME, MARY.

MARY, LOOK AT ME!

[LAUGHTER]IS IT?

[LAUGHTER]YOU HAVE TO DRIVE ALL THE WAY

DOWN TO THE STUDIO, MARY, LEVELWITH ME, MARY.

[ LAUGHTER ]WOW, DID THAT LOWER THE BAR,

CNN.

BUT I THINK YOU CAN GO LOWER.

>> INVESTIGATORS SOMETIMES USEPSYCHICS.

WHY HASN'T ANYONE CONSIDERED THESERVICES OF A CREDIBLE PSYCHIC

SPECIALIZING IN MISSING PERSONS?

IT SOUNDS INCREDIBLE BUT THEYHAVE BEEN USED BEFORE.

>> Jon: YEAH, WHILE WE'RE ATIT WHY NOT USE THAT OCTOPUS THAT

ALWAYS PREDICTS THE WORLD CUPVICTOR?

WHY DON'T WE STRAP SOME WINGS TOWOLF BLITZER AND LET HIM LOOSE

BECAUSE IN ORDER TO CATCH APLANE YOU MUST BECOME A PLANE.

[LAUGHTER]CNN'S MISSING AIRLINE OBSESSION

NOT ONLY DOUBLED THEIR PRIMETIMERATINGS IT ITSELF BECAME NEWS

BECAUSE THE ONLY THING LESSLIKELY THAN AN AIRPLANE

DISAPPEARING OUT OF THE SKYIS CNN'S RATINGS DOUBLING.

>> SPECULATION HAS BEENREPLACING HARD FACTS IN NEWS

COVERAGE EARLIER THISWEEK CNN ANCHOR DON LEMON

BROUGHT UP THE THEORY SOMETHINGQUOTE SUPERNATURAL

COULD BE AT PLAY.

>> THE NETWORK IS IN DIRERATINGS TROUBLE.

THEY GET A PULSE.

OKAY.

SO THE EXECUTIVES ORDER YOU GUYSHAVE TO DO THIS WALL TO WALL.

>> Jon: YOU BETTER BE CAREFULO'REILLY OR FOX'S COVERAGE OF

CNN'S OVER COVERAGE WILL BECOVERED -- BY CNN. NEWS LOOP!

>> WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF BILLO'REILLY SPEAKING WAY HE

DID?>> I THINK HE IS NERVOUS BECAUSE

HE LOST IN THE DEMO THEYOUNGER VIEWERSHIP THREE NIGHTS

IN A ROW LAST WEEKAND HE STARTED GETTING NERVOUS.

>> Jon: WE ALL KNOW MOST OFO'REILLY'S YOUNGER VIEWERS ARE

COMING INTO THE ROOM TO MAKESURE THEIR GRANDPARENTS ARE

STILL BREATHING.

[ LAUGHTER ]I DON'T --

[LAUGHTER][CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

I THINK IT DOESN'T COUNT, ONCETHEY PUT THEIR HAND ON THE

CHEST, DOES THAT COUNT?

[ LAUGHTER ] STILL, IF CNN ISHITTING RATINGS GOLD WITH THIS

SPECTRO-LOM-OTRO-TRON, FOX NEWSWILL NOT BE OUT-SPECULATED.

>> THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIOIN MY VIEW IN MY VIEW IS THE

PAYNE STEWART SCENARIO,SOMETHING HAPPENED WITH THE

OXYGEN ON BOARD, EVERYBODY DIED.

>> Jon: THAT SOUNDS LIKELY BUTEXPLAIN WHAT WOULD HAPPEN THEN

WITH THE TRANSPONDERS AND, IFYOU PLEASE, ACT IT OUT WITH AS

LITTLE RESPECT FOR THE VICTIM ASPOSSIBLE.

>> WHO SHUT THE TRANSPONDERS?

>> THAT COULD HAVE BEEN SOMEOF -- I'M CHOKING.

I'M CHOKING.

LET'S TRY GO BACK.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

EITHER GERALDO IS CALLOUSLY PLAYACTING THE REAL DEATH OF A REAL

PERSON OR HIS TONGUE HAS GONEROGUE AND DECIDED TO TAKE HIM

OUT BEFORE HIS TONGUE IS FORCEDTO SAY SOMETHING EVEN STRANGER.

BUT IT ISN'T CNN ONLY. CNN ISMISSING A LARGER STORY HERE.

>> YOU HAVE TWO PILOTS. BOTHPILOTS WERE MUSLIMS.

IT SEEMED TO TAKE A LONG TIMEFOR THEM TO BEGIN TO LOOK INTOTHE

BACKGROUNDS AND WHETHER THEY HADANY POLITICAL RADICALIZATIONS IN

THEIR BACKGROUND.

BY THE WAY, THERE'S A GOODCHANCE A SUBSTANTIAL

POPULATION OF CABINARE MUSLIMS AS WELL.

YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH AND FINDTHE OUT WHO HAS POLITICAL TIES,

EXTREMIST TIES.

>> I BELIEVE IT'S A 65% TO 75%CHANCE I'M CORRECT THE AIRPLANE

DID NOT CRASH AND IT'S GOINGTO BE USED IN A FUTURE

RADICAL ISLAMISTTERRORIST MOVEMENT.

>> Jon: YES, DOESN'T IT SEEMSUSPICIOUS TO ANYBODY THAT A

PLANE ORIGINATING IN A MUSLIMCOUNTRY WOULD HAVE SO MANY

MUSLIM PASSENGER AND PILOTS?

IT'S A LITTLE TOO CONVENIENT TOHEAR THE AIRLINES SAY IT THERE

ARE MUSLIMS AND MUSLIM PILOTSFLYING EVERY DAY WITHOUT

INCIDENT. WELL I DON'T BUY IT.

[ LAUGHTER ]YOU KNOW WHAT FOX AND CNN THIS

IS GETTING WAY TOHEATED AND WEIRD.

I'M AFRAID I'M GOING HAVE TOCALL MOM.

>> SOMETIMES IN THE WORLD OFCABLE NEWS THERE'S A MISMATCH

BETWEEN THE DEMAND FOR NEWINFORMATION ABOUT A STORY AND

THE SUPPLY OF NEW INFORMATIONTHAT EXISTS.

OUR JOB IS NOT TO FILL THE AIRBY TELLING BEDTIME STORIES.

>> THE WE WON'T TRY TO TURN THELACK OF NEWS IN THIS VERY SAD

STORY INTO SOMETHING THAT SOUNDSLIKE NEWS WHEN IT ISN'T.

>> Jon: YOU KNOW SHERMAN ANDMR. PEABODY ARE RIGHT.

[LAUGHTER][CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

AN ELOQUENT CALL TOACCOUNTABILITY.

WELL, MAYBE THEY SHOULD HAVECCED THAT TO EVERYBODY IN THE

BUILDING.

>> THE PLANE WAS CLEARLYMANIPULATED WHETHER IT BE BY THE

PILOTS OR SOMEONE WHO MAY HAVECOMMANDEERED THE PILOT.

A 5000 FOOT RUNWAY COULDHAVE BEEN BUILT ALONG THISSEARCH PATH.

IT COULD HAVE EVEN LANDED AT AREMOTE STRETCH OR IN A DESERT

SOMEWHERE. I THINK IT'S A WELLFUNDED HIJACK OPERATION AND

IT'S SITTING SOMEWHEREIN THE JUNGLE.

>> Jon: INTERESTING.

SO WE'RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE RICHAND EVIL ENOUGH TO FUND A HIGH

TECH JUNGLE PLANE HIJACKINGBUT TOO DUMB TO REALIZE THEY

COULD JUST BUY THEIR OWN(bleep) PLANE.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN --[LAUGHTER]

SCHULTZ IS AGAINST CROWDSOURCING THIS.

>> GET YOUR CELL PHONES OUT.

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK: TONIGHT'S QUESTION DO YOU THINK

THIS PLANE WILL EVER BE FOUND?

TEXT A FOR YES AND B FOR NO.

>> Jon: BECAUSE I'M LONELY.

AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT IF YOUARE WRONG BECAUSE THERE ARE NO

CONSEQUENCES FOR THAT AT ALLEVER.

[ LAUGHTER ]WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THESHOW.

BEFORE THE BREAK PRESIDENTBARACK OBAMA WAS ABOUT TO GET

SOME GOOD NEWS.CONGRESS WAS ACTUALLY

GOING TO ALLOW HIM TO APPOINTHIS PREFERRED CANDIDATE

TO A HIGH PROFILE POSITION.

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA SET TO MAKEHIS PICK FOR THE NEXT SURGEON

GENERAL. THE WHITE HOUSEANNOUNCED THAT HE INTENDS

TO NOMINATE DR. VIVEKMURTHY FOR THE JOB.

>> THE FIRST INDIAN AMERICANSURGEON GENERAL.

>> HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOLINSTRUCTOR AND TECHENTREPRENEUR.

>> Jon: HOLD ON THERE INDIANAMERICANS, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR IVY

LEAGUE DOCTOR OR YOUR TECHGENIUS YOU CANNOT HAVE BOTH.

[LAUGHTER]HE SEEMS EVIDENTLY QUALIFIED.

LOOKS LIKE SMOOTH SAILING FORGOOD SHIP MURTHY.

>> THE SECOND CONCERN I HAVEALONG THE SAME LINE IS

ABOUT YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT GUNS.

>> Jon: ICEBERG!

SOMEONE SAID THE WORD GUN WHICHMEANS IT'S TIME FOR THE NEW

SEGMENT: AMERICA STANDS ITSGROUND.

SO WHAT WERE DR. MURTHY'SCOMMENTS ABOUT GUNS?

>> IN YOUR TWEETS OF OCTOBER 16,2012: TIRED OF POLITICIANS

WHO ARE SCARED OF THE NRA,THOSE ARE SOME OF THE WORDS.

I WOULD HOPE YOU WOULD KNOW THATAMERICANS HAVE A FIRST AMENDMENT

RIGHT TO ADVOCATE THE SECONDAMENDMENT.

>> Jon: YES, AMERICANS HAVE AFIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO

ADVOCATE THE SECOND AMENDMENTAND APPARENTLY YOU DON'T HAVE A

FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO HAVE ADIFFERENT OPINION FROM THAT.

EVERYONE KNOWS THE FIRSTAMENDMENT ONLY APPLIES TO SAYING

POSITIVE THINGS ABOUT THE SECONDAMENDMENT.

THAT'S ALL. IT SAYSYOU HAVE A FIRST AMMENDMENT

RIGHT UNLESS YOUDON'T HAVE ANYTHING POSITIVE TO

SAY ABOUT THE SECOND AMMENDMENT.THEN YOU YOU HAVE TO SHUT THE

(bleep) UP. YOU HAVE TO SHUT THE(bleep) UP IS WHAT I'M SAYING.

IN ADDITION TO THAT TWEET MURTHYALSO SUPPORTS MAJORITY POPULAR

IDEAS LIKE BACKGROUND CHECKS ANDASSAULT WEAPON BANS IN OTHER

WORDS, STOP HIM?

>> THE NRA AND RAND PAUL HAVEMANAGED TO WHIP UP QUITE AFRENZY OVER MURTHY.

>> THE SURGEON GENERAL OUGHT TOBE FOCUSED ON THE MAJOR

HEALTH ISSUES OF OUR COUNTRY,HEART DISEASE, CANCER, STROKE.

THOSE ARE THE KILLERS.

>> BEING AGAINST SMOKING,BEING AGAINST OBESITY, THINGSTHAT ARE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH.

[LAUGHTER]>> Jon: YOU KNOW, BULLETS --

[LAUGHTER]-- ARE NOT GENERALLY CONSIDERED

SUPERFOODS.

[ LAUGHTER ]THEY ARE, AS WE HAVE LEARNED LOW

IN OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS ANDRELATIVELY HIGH IN LEAD.

BUT EVEN IF MURTHY WAS ANTI-GUNHE IS JUST THE SURGEON GENERAL.

HE IS THE NATION'S OFFICIALSCOLD. THE WORST HE COULD DO IS

PUT A WARNING LABEL ON BULLETS.THAT'S NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, IT DOESN'TMATTER ANYWAY REPUBLICANS, THE

SENATE RULE SAYS YOU CAN'TFILIBUSTER NOMINEES ANYMORE.

ALL THE PRESIDENT NEEDSIS A SIMPLE MAJORITY AND HE HAS

MORE THAN ENOUGH DEMOCRATSTO DO THAT.

>> ACCORDING TO THE NYTIMES QUOTE OPPOSITION FROM THENRA HAS GROWN SO INTENSE IT HAS

PLACED DEMOCRATS FROMCONSERVATIVE STATES SEVERAL OF

WHOM UP FOR REELECTION IN ADIFFICULT SPOT.

AS MANY AS TEN DEMS ARE BELIEVEDTO BE CONSIDERING A VOTE AGAINST

DR. MURTHY ON THOSE GROUNDS.

>> Jon: I GUESS THAT WILLTEACH DR. MURTHY TO MAKE WILD

ACCUSATIONS ABOUT POLITICIANSBEING SCARED OF THE NRA.

IS NOBODY IN AMERICA ABLE TOTAKE A COMMON SENSE APPROACH TO

DRUGS -- GUNS?

>> A FIFTH GRADER IN OHIO ISSUSPENDED FOR THREE DAYS AFTER

POINTING HIS FINGER LIKE AGUN. THE PRINCIPAL SAID THERE

IS A ZERO TOLERNCEPOLICY AND STUDENTS

WERE WARNED ABOUTPRETEND GUN PLAY MULTIPLETIMES THIS YEAR.

[ LAUGHTER ]>> Jon: OH FOR (bleep) SAKE. ISAID COMMON SENSE.

COME ON, THAT'S OBVIOUSLY A SELFDEFENSE FINGER GUN.

[ LAUGHTER ]NOT LIKE HE HAS ONE OF THEM HIGH

CAPACITY MAGAZINE FINGER GUNS.

IT'S A REGULAR OLD FINGER GUN.

WHY -- IT'S NOT AN ASSAULTFINGER GUN.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE][LAUGHTER]

EITHER I'M HUNGRY OR THOSE LOOKA LOT LIKE STACKED DOUGHNUTS.

SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT.REAL WEAPONS ARE OKAY, GREAT.

COMPLETELY IMAGINARY WEAPONSWEAPONS ARE INTOLERABLE.

WHAT ABOUT SOMETHING IN BETWEENTHERE.

>> A BIG TOY MANUFACTURER MAKINGWEAPONS NOW FOR GIRLS.

>> Jon: TOY WEAPONS FOR GIRLS.

MUST HAVE TAKEN A LONG TIME TOFIGURE OUT HOW TO TAKE A BOYS

WEAPON AND ADOPT IT FOR A GIRL.

I SEE.

OKAY, THAT MAKES MORE SENSE.

THIS IS EIGHT YEAR OLD GRACE'SFAVORITE TOY THE NERF REBELLE

HEART BREAKER A SPARKLY AND PINKBOW AND ARROW. SOME WONDER IF

TEACHING GIRLS TO PLAY WAR GAMESCOULD BE SENDING THE WRONG
