Review -- The Daily Show Convention Coverage

Jon Stewart and the Best ****ing Fake News Team in the world performed with excellence covering both the Democratic and Republican Conventions. In the event you didn’t get the opportunity to catch the shows live, please visit their web site to view the shows you missed.

Upon his arrival in Colorado on Monday at a breakfast at the University of Denver Jon blasted 24 hour cable news by telling them exactly what he thought about them: No Joke: Jon Stewart Takes Aim At 24-Hour Cable News 'Beast', by Howard Kurtz Washington Post Staff Writer

“Wearing a gray T-shirt, khaki pants and a healthy stubble, the "Daily Show" host told reporters at a University of Denver breakfast that Fox's "fair and balanced" slogan is an insult "to people with brains" and that only "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace "saves that network from slapping on a bumper sticker. . . . Barack Obama could cure cancer and they'd figure out a way to frame it as an economic disaster." for the entire article, go to this link. Since this is one of my pet peeves, it was a pleasure to read that Jon Stewart and I think an awful lot alike (scary actually).

But my hat really tipped when Jon presented the following "John McCain's Big Acceptance Speech", his last night of the Republican Convention. No matter what anyone may think of Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, it is easy to see why he is “the most trusted man in America”, as noted by the NT Times
Consider...according to main stream media, more people watched McCain's acceptance speech than watched Obama's acceptance speech; really... it was the same night as the U.S. Open Tennis Men's semi final matches and opening night for NFL Football, could the numbers be right?
