(See http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/17/ar...on/17kaku.html and http://newsinfo.iu.edu/web/page/normal/4159.html)
    And you think this is good? Jon Stewart by his own admission is a comedian, Brokaw has been retired for several years and Rather discredited. I'm really not very familar with the other two.

    I think the volume of work is pretty darn good. I am amazed that Jeff has the tenacity to do the leg work he does to research material that supports his position, especially when he surely knows that his audience will just reject out of hand anything that conflicts with their ideology.

    That is another fine example of the sad state of our country and the 'intelligence' of young adults.

    Yes he does and I respect him for that. He'll pull up research to support his view though I don't always agree with his view of the material.

    For instance; I view our broken immigration enforcement as a contributor to the problems we face today. That blame goes all the way to the top of our government and our failure to enforce since Reagan. Most on the left have no problem with the massive illegal migration to the USA. Different values for different folks. I liked things they way they were and some want to change it all.

    Stewart is clearly a left leaning individual, but I'd figure you guys would almost have to like him. In the early years the show was 100% comedy but there has been a shift over the past few years. The majority of the content of The Daily Show looks at government (left and right) and exposes hypocrisy and stupidity in a comedic and often hyperbolic way.

    I'm sure the majority on the right love Bill O'Reilly. Bill has said on his own show that he respects John Stewart and almost feels like he is the same kind of guy, just with some differing opinions. They've been on each others shows frequently and it's usually quite entertaining.

    Sure he started off as a pure comedian, but that has really changed. Some of his end of the show interviewees (left and right guests) have found a formidable opponent who knows his crap.

    Here are the unedited clips of Stewart on O'Reilly. I thought it was very interesting.

    The only part I never liked about that interview was Bill defending Beck...I'd like to think he knows better.

    Since you make the claim, would you mind posting links to some of the threads where this has happened. I would like to revisit them and compare the presented facts on both sides.

    There are no links to the times he disappears from a thread when his opinion is disputed. That is what I'm refering to.

    If you are talking about me, I think it is is safe to say that my opinion is always disputed and that I normally respond pretty quickly and in detail (what you call my volumes of BS, where BS seems to be defined by the volume, not the quality of what is said). However, appearances to the contrary (since I work at a computer all day), I actually sometimes leave the computer behind. It may be for several hours or several days. I do remember once coming back from such an outing and finding that you had posted a couple of different messages many hours before asking why I wasn't responding. I don't remember if I posted anything, or went on to the next thread. If my facts are proven to be untrue, as HEW has done at least 1-2 times, I try to make a point of accepting the correction. If the retort seems better suited for the playground, I will generally ignore once the "heat of the moment" has passed.
