Stewart skewers CNN

There is a reason why people who watch the Daily Show are generally better informed than people who watch cable news networks. Jon explains why CNN does not do real journalism here:

The clip is hilarious, but makes a serious point. We take the most ridiculous statements by politicians or pundits at face value, but we make sure to fact check everything that is said on Saturday Night Live, because we would not want satirical programs to get away with being unfair. So if you want to spread misinformation, all you have to do is get a senator to say it, because you'll never get away with telling falsehoods on a comedy show.

  1. On this we would agree but were this clip to appear on Fox News it would be called "bias."
