I don't know how much of the hatred against Leno is justified because I have always only viewed it from the perspective of Stern. But lately have been watching a lot of Jay Leno's Garage on youtube and he seems like a decent guy. I've never really heard him strike back but maybe because he is a nice guy not because he can substantiate his views. His talk show is shit but really he fills a niche that is much desired by his viewership so you can't really say he sucks in that context. I dunno? I am really curious what others who have a better perspective think. Afterall, it was quite common to hate Iran until you really empathize with how they are being encroached by other nations. And most of the War is really perpetuated by lobbyists and moneyed-interests (who coincidentally don't send their own sons to serve). Anyway if you like cars, his channel is really great as it has a wide range of vehicles.
