....that a large portion of 18-25 year olds don't watch news or get it online, so the Daily Show and the Colbert Report are the only outlets from which they get their news. It's one thing to be a comedian first, but another to sway the electorate with lies when you are unfortunately a very real part of the news media, sad as that statement is. Jon Stewart went through a phase where he blasted every biased media personality he could and told them how irresponsible they were, however Stewart hides behind the "comedian" thing just like Bob Dylan hid behind the "song and dance man" thing. Stewart and Colbert have an affect on millions of voting age people and they need to know that they're irresponsible tactics are more damaging than just being bad comedy.
Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
