Don't know if you guys saw this, but here it is. Stewart is, as usual, really sharp. It's really hard for me to disagree with his general critique--cable news was first among many reasons I tossed my television. I think he's only half-right about the rancor at work in the country. His point that people with kids have stuff in common too is a good one. But that's about the broader American society--not the political realm which is where cable news lives. Perhaps people go to MSNBC to get a robust portrait of American life. But I kind of doubt it. I think the core of their audience is made up of political junkies.
