    Stewart did good bit on this “story”. and CNN coverage of “breaking news”.

    There’s a rumor that CNN, NBC, MSNBC will merge and form the “News Ghouls Network”, NGN, all the news “fit to disgust, annoy and spread fear”.

    tigger: as you confess you only watch NBC, and never watch Fox because you aren’t “hooked up”, do you actually watch Stewart or Colbert??


    In the midst of the parody and humor, either Stewart or Colbert often present more real facts and NEWS in 4 minute humorous sketches, than hours of network and cable news provide, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, Fox, et al combined.

    Satire does not equal news when the purpose is entertainment.

    After two months, The Flight 714 hypothesis (thugs, volcano then alien abduction) is as credible as any other…

    Stewart doesn’t claim to do news so he is free to tell the truth unlike the real news programs.

    “Satire does not equal news when the purpose is entertainment.”
    .
    I think the point is the Daily Show and Colbert Report actually use and state more actual facts in a short period of time than the others combined.
    .
    That’s right, Stewart and Colbert report facts in a satirical manner. The others stir up fear, hatred and offer tons of speculation and their own opinions and call themselves news or journalists.

    So how are the viewers to determine when these paragons of virtue aren’t exaggerating, distorting a point to be funny? Colbert has been guilty of editing other’s statements to be funny, not factual. He’s as bad as NBC but he has more excuse.

    Tigger: you again prove my point, so true of so many conservatives, and too many “liberals” as well, if you don’t WATCH them, or LISTEN to them, not just “summaries” made by others, HOW do you know what their actual POV, or statements? That is why I’m actually listening to Limbaugh’s Saturday rehash of the week, rather than just watching or hearing potentially out of context clips and “interpretations”. It’s like listening to ALL of Bundy’s statements that were disgusting, not just the “edited highlights”.

    Tigger: P.S., if you watch or hear commercials, that “free” service you’re “sponging off of” (the public airwaves) isn’t actually “free”, either.

    I watch Fox and also watch Stewart, and several others (time permitting). Someone from SNL, said it’s better to make fun of the GOP or conservatives because they are more able to laugh at themselves. From my experience that is mostly true.
