I'm not sure if I can post the video here, but if you're not familiar with the "rivalry" between Stewart and Mad Money's Jim Cramer go to the dailyshow's website and check it out. I wanted to discuss one of Stewart's points. He says he wishes that the media would go back to real reporting so that he could go back to fart jokes. Think its true? If you do, think its a sad state of affairs that the most investigative and hard hitting reporter in America is on a comedy channel?
And why are we in this spot? Is it like the media giant say, they're only responding to ratings and our demands; or are they really censoring information for their corporate masters? There was a case on FoxNews where a team of reporters were doing a piece on Monsanto. When Monsanto got wind of it, they bought into Fox News and then forcably dropped the report and stopped it from ever airing. Is this what we really want? Personally, I was very entertained watching Stewart make Cramer cry.
