Jon Stewart tells Rachel Maddow what’s wrong with the media. But as usual, he focuses only on cable TV news. That’s understandable. If you’re a TV comic, it’s much harder to lambast the print media. But I wish he’d find a way because I think the print media watches him and thinks, “We’ll he may be the most prominent media critic in the country—by far. But he’s talking about those TV guys, not us.”
Which is a shame because I think his criticism about the shallowness and fixation on conflict of cable TV news also pertains to the print media.
