Not to be outdone by Jon Stewarts superb explanation of net neutrality, Steven Colbert gives a most excellent slam on the hollowness of today’s morning “news” shows. You can watch here.
The sad thing is that Colbert is right (“as always!” he would add) in a number of critical respects. First, his show actually does more in depth political reporting than most news shows. His “434 part series ‘Better Know A District’ (he eliminated Connigham’s district)” is actually very revealing. Second, so called morning “news” shows are to real news as “People” is to real news magazines.
