Ummm... Really?

I don't see the similarities between a comedy news show on a comedy channel and a guy who had a serious talk show on AM radio, then a serious show on a "legitimate" news channel and is deeply intertwined in the Republican political circles.

People actually form political opinions and feel Stewart is actually backing some of their viewpoints. It is frightening. In a nutshell, the retards ruined what would normally be a good comedy show for everyone else.
Make whatever point you want. It might even be a good point. No one is denying that the rollout of Obamacare has is having problems.

Just don't dismiss it as easily when the shoe is on the other foot and Republicans are made fun of. Don't say "Oh, it's just The Daily Show." Because you're using it for your argument, too.

I still stand by the fact that this comedy show is far more factual and honest than 90% of the stuff on Fox News (and other cable news stations to lesser degrees).

That's a fair point.

That's without even getting into the bits about Glenn Beck directly profiting from his hysteria and panic inducing program. Gold, survival kits, food insurance...

I find his fear pedaling pretty entertaining.....the moment he started pushing gold a rational (key word) investor should have known they missed the bus.

I'd like to see a chart of left and right commentators compared by their level of political slant and/or craziness.

I mean, who do you have on the left?

Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, Michael Moore

The right?

Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld, Fox & Friends

Which ones are equals?
