Here is the reason why smart and sophisticated people listen to Jon Stewart's The Daily Show for the news albeit satire, because he is one of the few who actually alludes to the important news in our society.
The Senate Intelligence report came out on June 5, 2007 and basically concludes that the Bush administration lied and distorted the facts to rationalize reasons for the war misleading the American people into a trillion dollar fiasco. Two of the three networks, CBS, and ABC didn't mention this most significant finding at all on their news broadcast, and NBC only gives in cryptic coverage.
It seems indeed ironic that you have to watch a satirical comedy program to get any significant news in the U.S. Makes you seriously question the role of the corporate media in our so-called democracy where propaganda and entertainment passes now as the evening news, and comedy gives us the truth.
The video lasts 4:24 and is worth watching.
