9. I think the Daily Show uses an "applause reel" when they have certain guests on
to drown out the "boos" from the audience out of respect to their guests and so they can maintain a small piece of dignity so that other conservative/repub guests will still appear.

I remember well when Lynn Cheney was on. There was "applause" as she walked out, but the look on her face said it all that that was not she was actually experiencing.

Don't forget that the Daily Show is entertainment and there would be nothing ethically barring them from employing this technique.

And frankly, I don't mind much as it achieves the latter part of my first sentence up top and I think Stewart does a good job of calling some of these people out on their spin and lies.
