Quote of the Day

"Truly a terrible, cynical, disingenuous news organization."

-- Jon Stewart on Fox News

I've said it over and over again: Whether they're willing to accept it or not, the staff of The Daily Show is doing some of the best journalism on television -- although in its defense, Fox News is funnier.

Their like IA for TV journalism, which is probably the worst medium for news possible. Still prefer Fox to everything but CNN.

Wasn't it just a few years ago they were rated as close to political center of any TV news show, but still left leaning? Don't have a citation, just remember reading it.

Will B - if you are open minded try watching "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism"
(2004). You can play it instantly if you are a Netflix subscriber.
