6. No!

Stewart and Colbert are excellent at analyzing the news in their own styles, but without some knowledge of the news prior to watching, you will get a distorted view.

8. You are right

but for those people who don't watch news or read news it is better than reading those stupid chain emails.

If they are in groups who do watch Stewart and Colbert there may be some discourse among their peers.

11. I know so many people who only get the news from Jon and Steve.

I don't consider them well informed, but it's just that Jon and Steve distill the double speak into something they understand. We would have many more Tea Partyers if it weren't for them. They really are heroes.

13. And it's the prized demographics that Stewart and Colbert keep informed, too.

Amazing it has to come from an outfit that calls itself "Comedy Central." But thank God we have them both!

33. They also self-deprecatingly call themselves "fake news"...

... but the news is real; they just cut through the doublespeak and highlight the hypocrisy. What they do involves more journalism than so many so-called" "news" shows who parrot stuff in a he-said-she-said format.

but very no nonsense BS meters, those same people would believe everything verbatim they get from the "librul" media.

9. These people say "More Government" as if it's all about "Welfare"...

But every one of them milks the government for everything they can get.

If not for themselves than for some major company in their state. In return, they get kickbacks in the form of "campaign contributions" which is nothing but bribery.

10. And I was surprised Rachel didn't point this out

When she showed that his house in his middle class neighborhood is now up for sale (at just under $700k in a moderately priced Miami, by the way).

A minute earlier he talked about his retiree neighbors on Soc Sec in any attempt to show how he is just like you (calling Christine O'Donnell!). A minute later he was decrying govt. programs. I guess govt programs are good only if they are helping people who are props in your Everyman story. Same problem that Paul Ryan had.

12. Really a clumsy bait and switch.

All these Republican cons are living on government subsidies of some sort or the other, paid for by tax payers, all the way up to the Koch brothers. They know that when they are in charge they never will lift taxes on the poor and middle class, but they will make sure the taxpayers get no benefits from the taxes either. It's just them who will benefit. It's really their game plan. Big oil and industry will get all the subsidies and tax loopholes they can get their paid for legislators to pass. The savings will be passed on to their overpaid executives and stockholders as profits. They will keep the money for themselves while they look for more government money to now feed on. This is why they are after Social Security and Medicare, the last government money they haven't been able to raid for their benefit.

14. For Republicans the purpose of government is to put money in their pockets.

It's that simple. If whatever government service doesn't do that...well, of course
it's unnecessary.

35. Nope. Too dishonest and lacking in moral consistency for the mob.

The mob weren't nice folks by any stretch but I think there cut would be above the TeaPubliKlans, they at least weren't granny starving assholes robbing the poor.

Probably a case could be made that the most people were in less danger, more secure, and less likely to have their lives intruded on with organized crime than disorganized crime and the response to it but that is another issue and one best dealt with by ending vice laws and enforcement.

Once everyone started looking, illegal nans were everywhere. Great to see them getting sensitized to the fact of government helping out people everywhere, in all kinds of ways.

39. I discovered Jon Stewart 10 years ago when our cable company expanded channels

and we finally got Comedy Central. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When Colbert started his own show, I admit at times I just didn't get him. Now, Stephen is my favorite, although I never miss the Daily Show either.
