Frank Rich Thinks Joy Behar is the New Edward R. Murrow

“In our news culture, Behar, a stand-up comic by profession, looms as the new Edward R. Murrow.”

Actually we’re not sure Frank Rich means it literally — one interview does not a journalistic cornerstone make — but still, point taken. Why is it the comedy world always seems to be doing the MSM’s dirty work for them? At this point one could make a fairly solid argument for the idea that at least one of the debates should be moderated by John Stewart, Tina Fey, and Joy Behar.
