News you can use.

Posted Wed Aug 11, 2004, 10:07 AM by Tracy | |

It’s a bit of old news, but you may recall the AP reported back in March (CNN article here) an increase in the percentage of under-30s who say they get their news from comedy programs such as The Daily Show with John Stewart.

Here’s a good reason why (requires Windows Media Player).

You simply do not see a guest nailed for obfuscation and evasiveness on any other “legitimate” news show.

(I’m hoping I got this link working correctly. Fingers crossed. If not, go to The Daily Show and click on Congressman Henry Bonilla under Celebrity Interviews.)

  1. Heh - the thing is - it sounded like John Stewart knew the answer anyhow. Smart man. :)

    I miss cable.
