Hey national news, you think your ratings are bad now?
I haven’t seen a survey but I would be willing to bet that most journos and PR peeps watch Comedy Central … for news.
Why? How much drive-by shootings, domestic disturbances, child abuse cases, political scandals, and weather reports can one person take in a day? We need some levity so we read blogs with a tinge of snark and watch TV with a bit more.
Thank you Comedy Central for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
While they joke wonderfully about the world around us, they educate America by giving a no-nonsense approach to what “breaking news” obfuscates on a minute-by-minute basis. And now, there’s proof: Stephen Colbert has been voted the “most informative U.S. news source.”
