thats one of the things i like about the daily show. interspersed with obviously fake news is occasionally real news, like a brief but intelligent discussion with the guest. its almost like they are tricking people into learning things.


Back to conspiracy theories, again, who shot the "missile" into the Pentagon?


no one. the pentagon doesnt exist.

One thing I can't get over is how well Jon Stewart interviews his guests... whether it's a huge movie star or some obscure political analyst who wrote a book, he's always friend, intelligent and witty. Rarely is he condescending to guests he disagrees with and is always knowledgable on the subject of his guests.

I'm particularly impressed whenever he interviews O'Reilly. I found it interested the last time O'Reilly was on the Daily Show that Stewart never pretended that his show should even be taken seriously, while O'Reilly went off on how The Daily Show audience is all a bunch of slacker potheads.

Then Comedy Central did a study and discovered that viewers of the Daily Show are FAR more likely to have a college degree than viewers of the O'Reilly Factor.

I think it's the "fake news" label that lets Jon get away with being so laid back with his interviews. That, along with doing 4 minute bits on the taint before bringing out someone like Jimmy Carter.

The guests let their guard down a bit, and Jon doesn't really take advantage of it. He comes off as being very even-handed with everyone, even when they clearly don't agree.

There's a rational aspect to it that you'll never get from the shows with those sploogechoking pundits. There's nothing to be heard on those shows but the hosts yelling over the guests or trying to put words into the guests mouths.
