Daily Show Review!!

After watching couple daily show episodes by Jon Steward.

It was just hilarious seeing him talk about serious issues in a funny way.
I think it is an intersting way of presenting information that usually is boring or very little attractive in a way that the audience can easily relate to. Indeed, we can learn from it. He is sarcastic and cynical in his comments, but these comments contain some truth and honesty. It is a way of criticizing leaders and governments on their unexplainable actions. I usually do not pay attention to any political information, but I found I enjoyed watching these programs and I actually learned from them.

THUS, we have to see more of them in class!!

Hmmmm . . . alliances between parties? I guess I can't remember this ever being an issue in the States. Though it would be nice if we had more than two major parties.

Oops, that other comment was supposed to go with your more recent post "British without a head!"

I'm so glad you liked The Daily Show! It's definitely one of my top 3 favorite shows. And while I'd love to watch him in class all day, I can't promise any more clips for this year. But if you want to see more, you can watch most of his show for free on his website:

You may also like his friend/former colleague Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report. It's the same type of show, but Colbert plays a character (he pretends to be very narcissistic, conservative republican), and so his program sometimes seems to be a bit more crazy/silly.
