--Fake and scathing 1, fair and balanced 0. CNN and MSNBC have gotten used to losing to Fox News. But during the Democratic primaries, an unexpected foe stole the ratings crown from all three. The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, a mock news program airing on Viacom's (VIA) Comedy Central, attracted more viewers at 11 p.m. than any of the cable news channels in the last two weeks of January, outdoing Fox by 20 percent even as the news network was running live campaign coverage. Stewart's fake news show has won ever-growing audiences with help from real politico guests like John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and John Edwards. --
I've said it before and I'll say it again, the best news source on TV is The Daily Show w/Jon Stewart. Hey, it's almost as comedic as Fox News, and at least it KNOWS it's stupid (THE ONLY NEWS PROGRAM WITH NO CREDIBILITY TO LOSE!).
