Daily Show   Leave a comment

I watched an episode of The Daily Show that discussed whether or not the religion of a presidential candidate should matter.  Different views were satirized to make humor of the situation and the fact that most Americans don’t know the differences of certain religions was also brought into light.  By exposing ignorance, the show was insightful and humorous in dealing with this subject that some people find as an interesting topic.  Jones’ comments about satirical news shows seem fair but a little more against traditional news shows that I would be.  He brings up some ideas that I haven’t thought about before that I find myself agreeing with.  I believe that satirical news shows have some advantage over traditional news in being more entertaining and able to focus on more specific details of speeches and debates.  He brings up some good arguments for both sides of the news spectrum.
