Yes, I know The Daily Show is a comedy. My cable guide specifically says, “A humorous slant on recent news stories.” The point Joe makes here however is that across the board, there is a liberal slant that isn’t based on kickbacks from the DNC, but (to quote his guest New York Times journalist John Harwood),
I don’t think they are hacks for the Democratic Party. People write about what’s funny to them. And the stuff that’s funny to them is, is the stuff that comes out of what they see that they want to make fun of from Republicans.
The point Harwood mistakenly makes is that yes, people in the media (from Harwood to Stewart) only see Republican “stuff” as worth covering.
Joe’s point of course is that we should all look at both sides-not just the “Republican stuff” or the “Democrat stuff.” Americans need to open their eyes, and see which side is selling the worst used cars.
