In my column this week, I wrote about a recent article in the New York Times that discussed how The Daily's Show with Jon Stewart has, over the past eight years, become an almost trusted source of news and desired pit stop for celebrities and politicians alike. Even so, it was a little bit surprising that Stewart's criticism of the cable news media, including his spat with Fox News is something that is being reported as though it is coming from a legitimate media critic. Come on people! Stewart is lampooning the media in the same way that Saturday Night Live has satirized TV shows, newscasts, and movies for more than 30 years. The fact that the media has devoted so much space to his criticisms, and has taken it so seriously, just proves his point further. Thoughts?
