Jon Stewart mocks the vacuousness of the media. What a great critique. It lasts 6:41 and every student of the media should watch it.
I don't pay for cable TV because most of it is so stupid. It has very little value. I worry that our democracy is in peril if people rely on this media for their information about what is important in our society. Thank god there are critics like Jon Stewart who bring our attention to how ridiculous it is. His mockery really is funny and the joke is on us.
