Another motherlode of irony discovered, possibly enough to fuel mankind's needs for the next 200 years, courtesy this ultrapartisan and tendentious piece by Al Gore.
This was the point made by Jon Stewart, the brilliant host of "The Daily Show," when he visited CNN's "Crossfire": there should be a distinction between news and entertainment.Yes, because by hosting a show whose whole premise is presenting news as entertainment, Jon Stewart is doing so much to preserve that distinction.
What is it that Daily Show promotors like to brag? 20% or so of young people report the Daily Show is their primary source of news? Does Jon see that as a problem?
Maybe he was joking.
