    Sadly it seems that the only thing on these days is the news. It's never any better than those terrible sitcoms that keep coming out. For me the Jon Stewart has been a wonderful bright spot in the haze of news. He adds a touch of comedy to an otherwise bleak job. It's easy to pick either of him apart from an ethical stand point as he uses comedy (usually offensive in to one group or another) to deliver the news. The main thing is his disregard for ethics. While some of his sketches may be "politically correct" it is no less offensive. The reason they get away with it is that in their eyes everyone is a target, whites, blacks, democrats, republicans, jews, christians. To him all people are crazy.He doesn't have much of a social contract and it is one of the things i admire most about his show. I have to say I really enjoy watching The Daily Show, because it brings a brighter touch to an otherwise bleak world.
