Totally Biased: Extended Talk with Jim Norton and Lindy West


Jim Norton and “Jezebel” blogger Lindy West to debate misogyny in comedy and whether any topic can be considered off-limits for artists. While only a 6-minute version of the debate aired on FX, “Totally Biased” has released the entire thing online.

Good discussion and good TV.

Jim killed it particularly towards the end there.  However, I thought the woman put forth a fairly reasonable argument for the other side of the coin despite me disagreeing with it.  Good job by both

How did this community college teacher get a tv show? And why no discussion on the appropriateness of upper back fat on tv? Nice hipster bangs,Elsie...

Wow that fat white broad is really trying to ride the host's dick..... They are in serious danger of becoming a stereotype they hate.

Sick of Jimmy's repetitive attempt to be fancy arguments. Not going to push play and move on.

I can't decide who is less funny, the host or the fat broad...they're both horrendous.

Love to see lil jimmy poised, eloquent, and gracious.  She was clearly outmatched, and he knew how to help her keep up with him.  Fucking brilliant.

She has no idea what comedy is and does.

After his Joan Rivers analogy, she turned into a stuttering mess

I see this as Lindy West not considering comedy to be art. Her failure to counter Jimmy's argument about Death Wish shows that she considers cinema as art but not comedy. Fuck that. I'm not really a fan of Norton but he easily won that debate. I'd suggest Lindy listen to the Unmasked archives for an appreciation of comedy as a true art form.

As far as rape goes, this bitch has nothing to worry about

Melissa McCarthy's new character sucks.  

Good job Jimmy.  She never confronted your argument about museums or the other arts and their "Golden" standard.

I fucking hate this bitch. Very happy to see the full extent of just how much Jimmy put her in her place.

My wife used to say she could never laugh at a rape joke, it wasn't funny, blah blah blah. Then she watched a Patrice special with me.
