New slogan: more people get their news from Jon Stewart than from any other source.
These cable political pundit guys still can't get over the fact that people watch Comedy Central instead of them, and get their exposure to politics by watching guys like Jon Stewart lampoon people on the Daily Show. Now they're all having a big cow over it.
Last Friday Tucker Carlson took on Jon Stewart on Crossfire and Stewart basically handed Carlson his head. You can read about their big feud here- all the details about Stewart's appearance.
This has been an absolutely silly political season in the United States as far as the media are concerned. Traditional media is the big loser of this election! In other media news CBS News is still investigating Memogate (the Bush hatchet job), Sinclair Broadcasting is in hot water for planning to air an anti-John Kerry documentary ...and Bill O'Reilly is having to fight a sexual harassment lawsuit.
Who has the last laugh, now?
JON STEWART, THAT'S WHO.
Har har har. Life is good.
