New study says Comedy Central fake news show contains just as much truth as real news.
Oct 06, 2006
Daily Show equals real news

A study released Wednesday by an Indiana University professor states that when broken down, The Daily Show coverage of the 2004 presidential election contained as much actual news as a regular broadcast news show. The study compared The Daily Show to ABC Evening News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News.

Jon Stewart Bleeds on TV, Still Goes Easy on Weiner (VIDEO)
If the Daily Show host wants to be taken seriously, he should really go after his disgraced pal. But does he want to be taken seriously?
After weeks of speculation, it finally came to pass: Jon Stewart hosted the Academy Awards. How did you like him?

Post Mortem: How did Jon Stewart do?

We can all let out a collective sigh of relief, because, for better or worse, Jon Stewart has his first Academy Awards gig in the rearview mirror. Now, the world can expound endlessly!

The show opened with a video intro starring various Oscar hosts of the past, all of them bowing out on hosting the show. Stewart was shown waking up in bed with Halle Berry, then realizing that was a dream and waking up in bed with George Clooney. The video was met with tepid laughter.

When Stewart launched into his opening monologue, playfully ribbing some of the A-listers present, many stars fidgeted uncomfortably or wore unhappy smirks. Clooney was the exception, goofing along amiably as Stewart teased him that Good Night, and Good Luck was how the movie star ended all of his dates.

Steven Spielberg, director of Munich and Schindler's List, glowered disapprovingly as Stewart said ...

Forget the 24 hour biased left wing news media, the best fake news show in the world will provide you with all the news you can handle. The Daily Show is a comedic view of recent news headlines and political figures through a series of satirical monologues by Jon Stewart along with segments by "correspondents" and finally interviews with guest celebrities and political figures. Craig Kilborn (SportsCenter) was the original host until the fourth season when Jon Stewart (The Jon Stewart Show) came in to take over after Kilborn left for CBS. The Daily Show has won multiple Emmy's and other prestigious awards such as the Peabody Award. It airs Mondays-Thursdays at 11pm ET on Comedy Central. It re-airs the following day at 1am ET, 10am ET, 2pm ET, and 8pm ET on Comedy Central.
