The Daily Show Sucked Last Night

| | Comments (0)
TDS spent the first segment of the show talking about 'Rathergate,' and didn't actually do any real lampooning of CBS. Stewart said one of the panelists should be wearing a press hat, Rather was not fired even though the 'gate' was named after him, and Andy Rooney has bushy eyebrows.

The rest was just using this news event as a vehicle to bash Bush and Fox News.

They deserve bashing, but this was a huge event in the news business, a catastrophic failure of one of the preeminent TV news organizations. If TDS cannot actually lampoon CBS intelligently over this, then what good are they?

[Insert charges of liberal media bias here.]
