Tell me, how crazy could Fox 'News' get before they'd lose their audience? Is there any limit? There really doesn't seem to be.
Fox has long been a laughingstock for anyone sane - well, sane and well-informed, at least. But they just seem to get crazier and crazier, while still making money hand over fist. I ask again, isn't there any limit?
Incidentally, PZ Myers calls Jon Stewart "the only news source worth listening to anymore" (re. Stewart's Monday night clip about Brian Williams). I'm not sure he's wrong, but given that Jon Stewart is a comedian, not a journalist, that says a lot about the state of America's media, doesn't it?
Sadly, Jon Stewart is leaving the Daily Show. After losing Stephen Colbert earlier this winter, this is especially going to hurt. As far as I'm concerned, John Oliver is the only person who comes close to those two, and I doubt if he's going to come back to the Daily Show.
But who knows? I wasn't expecting John Oliver to be as good as he is, either, and look what happened. (Last Week Tonight is on HBO, which I don't get, but they do post clips on their YouTube channel.) When they replace Jon Stewart, we'll just have to see...
