    Commenting on the news using comedy and satire is clearly comparable to spreading rumours about Hillary Clinton ordering assassinations.

    Of course. I'm dumbfounded that Reps have a rep for being dumb.

    It's not criticizing The Daily Show or The Onion or any other satire outlet to note the irony that, for a generation, people commented amusingly and approvingly about how young people were getting their news from satire outlets and then reacted with horror when fake news sources were shown to exist.

    people who got their news from Jon Stewart for 15 years were way better informed than any Cnn/Msnbc/etc viewer. You will notice i ignored Fox news in this statement (as should any reasonably intelligent person)

    If you compare Jon Stewart's Daily show with the Onion you are either ignorant about at least one of those or dumb as a rock.

    Yes, a person who does get all of his news from The Daily Show would say so...

    all their news? as in only care about the subjects Jon Stewart is covering and then completely shutting off any other news source?

    is that what you think i meant? that would make your argument easier to support, wouldn't it.

    "Fake News" is any source that deliberately spreads false information. That wouldn't include the Daily Show.

    End thread.
