A View From Across The Pond

A boneheaded decision by executives at Channel 4 last year saw the dropping of daily transmissions of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It's a pity because it means all but the web & blog-savvy won't have seen this clip from Monday's programme which takes a look at the phone-hacking scandal: http://gawker.com/5820243/jon-stewart-tackles-the-news-of-the-world-scandal .

That's really frustrating. But I find that in the UK people don't seem to find Stewart very funny. As if sarcasm is not proper humour. Maybe because Stewart and the others from the Daily Show (and Stephen Colbert!) do something that most British comedians are unable to do: take an uncompromising shot at powerful people and public figures.
