Broadcasting Baloney

The US TV news networks rarely offer their viewers real journalism. Instead, thet serve up a toxic concoction made up of infomercials & deranged, partisan cheerleading (just check Fox News' website...then again, best not to). We all know the broadcast media in the UK has numerous shortcomings, but most BBC reports & Channel 4 News are head & shoulders above anything masquerading as journalism across the pond.
Yesterday's edition of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart was on fine form in skewering the hype, rants & general bullshit which passes for news (http://www.thedailyshow.com/ ).
