Writer's Block: Comedians as Journalists

Distrust of the media has grown to the point where many people only trust the news if it comes from a comedian. Who do you trust more: Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart?
Jon Stewart by far. Nothing against Stephen Colbert, but The Colbert Report is a totally different show. It's a take on pundit shows, not on news shows. So yeah, I take my news from The Daily Show. I know Jon's expressed concern about that in the past, but it just goes to show how silly the 'real' news has become.

Keith Olbermann is pretty good too, though. I was watching him last night. Fun times.
