    Watch Colbert Report and Jon Stewart. In many ways you get more of who, what, where, why, when, and how from these satirical news anchors then the ridiculous CNN news anchors. If this doesn't post I will be sending a list of all my non posted comments to comedy central and all the major news media including fox.

    Jon Stewart has the best press of anyone on TV.

    April 24, 2008 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm |

    Jon is not as cool as he used to be to be honest. He is supposed to tell the fake news and make fun of news not try to be the news. I believe he is becoming what he has always hated.

    The Daily Show has been the best source of non-spin out there. Pretty sad, but true. Their piece on Clinton Double speak, goal post moving, and rounding up the PA votes they aired last night was fascinating.

    Seeing video clips of the Clinton empire contridicting their own thoughts and actions back to back like that really confirms that she shouldn't be in offce.

    I am very anxious to help change the negtative and prejudice that exist in the U.S.A...I am so tired of people who claim to be christian and then say they cannot vote for a black man !!! And that is suppose to be a statement from someone who claims to be a child of God????..It is ironic that so many people fall for the slimy television ad's against Obama..I will vote for him this fall and might not vote for Hillary if she steals the presidency..I am an retrired teacher and a white woman over 70...Go Obama..Ruth In Mo.

    My question for them.

    Is an extensive background check done on the candidates prior to running for president? If not,Why?

    Will a extensive background check be done before they go into office?

    Newton Gingrich...the guy who divorced his wife when she was in the hospital dying of cancer. Those are morals and virtues...Republican style.

  22. Woohoo!

    Ruth, Ruth, Ruth – a retired teacher from Montana should know there is no ' in "ads"! And who said they cannot vote for Obama because he is black? I cannot vote for him because he is underqualified and affirmative action was never meant to include the White House.

    Emphasis on FORMER House Speaker Newt Gingrich who was in the throes of his own sex and ethics scandals during the Clinton impeachment.

    He is irrelevent, even on a fake news show. Did I say fake news? That must be Fox. Sorry.

    To everyone saying Clinton is "destroying the party" by staying in the race - do you mean to say that DEMOCRACY is destroying the DEMOCRATIC party?

    Because...that's basically what you're saying.
