Don’t get me wrong, I love ‘The Daily Show,” but the way Stewart picks, chooses and crops his source material to carefully construct a knock-out blow of a point is something no journalist would ever be able to do.
The way Stewart retracts into “Hey, man, I’m just a comedian here” mode after an attack also strikes me as somewhat disingenous. If so, “Hey, man, you’re not being very funny right now!” so maybe he’s as guilty as those he’s attacking?

By “News or Entertainment” do you mean Jon Stewart or Rick Santelli?
As out of touch as mainstream newspapers may be, nobody in the media is hurting America right now more than MSNBC and CNBC. OK, maybe Rush Limbaugh.
