Here's my question: why can't someone in the mainstream news media highlight the hypocrisy like this? Why can't we see Tom Brokaw or Brian Williams run these kinds of clips? This stuff is used for a laugh line on the Daily Show, but really should be pointed out by the news media at large.

I've shared that thought Diemen. News media is far too serious. There's so much to say about spicing it up with laughter, which is so healthy. I would rather get my news from the likes of a John Stewart type. (Brian Williams can sometimes be funny though)

I'm not even talking about laughter, though. I don't mind the "serious" news being serious. But they should be the ones we look to to expose these kinds of inconsistencies and hypocrisies from our politicians, not a comedy show.

I could not agree more Diemen Hope you watched the whole episode last night. Really a great one

Send a comment/email to the news networks. If you find a link/addy, post it (or PM) and maybe others can write in as well, demanding good journalism.

BTW, did you catch Brian Williams on Tuesday evening?

I did. I look forward to him every time he's on The Daily Show. He and John are frickin' hilarious together. I was practically in tears from laughing so hard by the end of that interview. Brian Williams+John Stewart+Stephen Colbert=my

I've been watching The Daily Show for 3 years now, and I still never remember that.

It definitely was a great one - one of the best ones, I'd say. He nailed Gingrich pretty well with the choice bit.

You know nobody takes the Republicans seriously when serious news networks take a Daily Show approach to covering their convention.

^I think it's hilarious; political satire at its best. Its why Stewart and Colbert really are the best political "journalists" of their day. They put the regular news organizations to shame, except for my guys at NBC. The article is really great too.
