  •  I...er...well... (none)
    I was just flipping past - I only have about 90 seconds between home and the train station, and I left my British Sea Power CD at home.

    If I cancel my cable (actually satellite because I vowed my petty revenge against my cable company), then I won't get The Daily Show anymore.

    •  Yeah I know (none)
      That kept me from doing it for a while, but the last straw for me was when Jon Stewart called Zell Miller "a good man" to his face. That's when it dawned on me that TDS isn't interested in changing anything, they are just exploiting the situation just the same as the cable channels are. I didn't think that before the election. I saw the passion in Stewart's eyes and heard it in his words. That's all gone now. I think he's given up and is just playing the game now no different than Russert or Matthews. Made the decision easier.

      Why don't you call them on their bullshit on the air? You're an anchor for fuck sake! - John Stewart

      •  Keep asking that question - (none)
        It is an unwelcome one, but keep asking it.

        The one bit of power individuals have left is the ability to bitch slap these tickling commoditeers (CorpsMedia) with the invisible hand.

        •  I don't come here to make friends (none)
          I come here to make a difference. The sad thing is that we have enough who visit this site every day to make a real difference. I don't think Kossacks understand that what goes on at Daily Kos influences all of American media. If we all decided to boycott corporate media tomorrow it would have a chilling effect across not only the blogosphere but all of mainstream media. But like the saying goes - getting liberals to agree on anything is like herding cats.

      •  You quote John Stewart on your posts, yet (none)
        you simultaneously accuse him of being a sellout. It is not selling out to not insult your guest on your TV show. He was not "praising" Zell Miller - he was merely being a gentleman. Can't you tell the difference?
    •  Daily Show (none)
      You can watch the best TDS clips online -- that's what I do.  I pay Time Warner for cable internet, but not cable TV.
