Wow not much gets by you now does it? But wait yes it does!

Quote:
Nearly one-third of Americans under the age of 40 say satirical news-oriented television programs like The Colbert Report and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart are taking the place of traditional news outlets.

Thirty-two percent (32%) of adults ages 30-39 believe this to be true, while 42% disagree, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Thirty percent (30%) of those ages 18-29 say programs like the two Comedy Central shows that feature news reports with a comic twist are replacing traditional news outlets, but 35% disagree and another 35% are not sure.
Edit:
And by the way that is from Rasmussen.

When you address your Apology it should be :

You do not need to throw in Sir or anything like that.

PS you too JakEx

They are all news reporters. The shows they have take the format of commenting on the news.

Nice sidestep by the way on that Comedy Central thing.

Waiting for that apology...

I thought you would be able to admit when you are wrong. Of ALL the lefties here I thought you had it in you.

Man I wish we could have met when you were in Singapore. That would have been a fun time my friend.

They are commentators first and foremost. For the most part, their commentary follows reports and information generated by others. And you know that.

No sidestep in evidence. My opinion of TDS stands as stated. That some may choose to view it as a news source is as shortsighted on their part as it is for viewers who use the same lazy approach when viewing those on the original list.
