Leave it to Jon Stewart to bring much needed honesty to the Terri Schiavo misinformation campaigns. In this outtake of his show he offers a montage of snippets from major news sources addressing the Schiavo phenomenon and proves once again that if you’re expecting clarity and evidence of responsibility from the information, you’re more likely to get it from The Daily Show than from CNN, Fox or MSNBC cable news.
These news sources too often belie professionalism and that’s good news for Jon. He and his writers consistently entertainingly reveal the hidden issues at play when a nation is constantly misinformed and manipulated for the sake of religious, moralistic, political and high ratings gains. As long as hypocritical, agenda-rich opinions are presented to the masses as conscientious, authoritative investigations, programs like The Daily Show will remain a much needed counter service.
Thank you Jon Stewart and The Daily Show.
