As an informed adult, I love the Daily Show and Stewart. The humor is just terrific. But I am informed and easily see through the creatively funny twist & spin. I find that part of the humor.

However, as you know, far too many people are uninformed, and many surveys have pointed out that the Daily Show is viewed as a "source of news" to many people.

News told in a humorous way is one thing, News told in a humorously spun/un-true way is not "a news source at all".

Here's an article that outs the technique the Daily Show uses to gather & design their spin from interviews. Dirty liars is what the behind the scene Daily Show folks are. Kind'a destroys my willingness to now laugh with them.

How about you? Does this mean anything at all?

The Daily Show is Bill Maher lite. Pure BS liberal slanted garbage. Don't watch it or anything associated with comedy central. You'll be much happier.

Hint.... Agreed. Ironically, a majority of college students "think" of it as their "new source". <lol wink wink back at ya.....

My point was, as comedy they are good. I really did not know the deceive their guests to garner their context. That's what the article was identifying.

Completely agree, comedy and laughter is the key to misery.

People also read a The Onion and think its real news. Isn't it just easier to let the stupid just be in peace?

Just about every source has been hijacked by either party. Even Rolling Stone was taken over and backs moves by the Democrats that were identical to Republican moves they opposed. American media is nothing but Tass and Pravda of the 1970's. Corporate BS to keep you arguing at the bottom while the wealth is moved through New York and Washington. Try finding a good political novel without party bias and lies. People don't want to improve their minds ...they just want someone to blame and confirm their limited beliefs. Just look at most posters here. Most don't have any historical knowledge. They leap from sidebar to sidebar.

Unfortunately Bob, your right more times than not with that accusation. The uninformed think it is a win/lose game they must play. Seems they have failed to realize that when freedoms & We The People legislative control is inhibited or lost, "we" all lose. It's like they believe lying, cheating, deception, and stealing is "fair play" to win. Regardless of who does or has done these things, it must be considered "wrong" by all. Reagan & Clinton are two fairly recent POTUS examples of leadership that inspired both sides to work together. It can happen again, but not with a POTUS who sticks you in the eye with a sharp stick, rejects "all" your proposals, and then "blames" you for not cooperating. This type of leadership is exactly what we don't need.

How can you put Reagan and Clinton in the same sentence? That's like comparing Gene Autry with John Holmes. The only thing Clinton ever "lead" with was his pecker. He was a serial molester of women.(excluding Hillary)
