“The Daily Show” Chides CNN

The Huffington Post has an article up concerning fact-checking.

Saturday Night Live had a sketch where someone playing the role of President Obama claimed that he couldn’t have been bad for the country as rightwingers claimed, since he had actually done nothing while in office. CNN then did a story about fact-checking the SNL skit.

Jon Stewart at “The Daily Show” then took up the futility of CNN getting all bent out of shape over a certain artistic license in an SNL skit script when they had a number of interviewees who simply delivered false information without CNN bothering to find out whether those people had their facts straight.

It’s pretty sad when one is finding over and over again that a major bastion of journalistic integrity nowadays is itself a comedy show.
