The Truth About The News Stations

I love this clip from Joy Behar's show. I'm not into Joy Behar, but finally here is a topic we can agree on.

Jon Stewart from The Daily Show on Comedy Central has been targeting Fox News for years. Now, Bill O'Reilly from Fox News has finally started taking on Jon Stewart. Jon Stewart had the courage to go on Fox News and confront them right in the lion's den.

What's being talked about, though, is important. There are so many people who take what Fox News says as gospel. It's not. It's opinion about current news stories from a Republican viewpoint. It's as if you were watching the Republican News Station.

Fox News tries to claim that everyone "knows this". Not everyone knows this, and sadly, not everyone cares. That's why there are a bunch of people at a Tea Party Convention, with Sarah Palin being paid $100,000 to be their keynote speaker. Fox News has done their part to "promote" and even "sponsor" a lot of the marches and other activities with this same Tea Party.

As opposed to Jon Stewart, who is also doing a show giving opinion, but his Daily Show is not on a "news" network, it is on Comedy Central. People watching that show know there is serious parody going on there.
