The FBI and the Seven Knuckleheads

You can't help but wonder why the gov'ment would crow so much about the yahoos they framed in Miami. The only contact they had to Al Killya was through an informant posting as a member of the terrorist group? How ridiculous is that? I am sure there has got to be other more dangerous homegrown groups out there than these guys. They are colored and they did study Islam a little bit, that is much more frightening than crazed hillbillies in the midwest with actual weapons?

Stop, you are making me more apathetic

I've heard about this before. The Daily Show is making kids more cynical and less apt to vote? I would think John Stewart's willingness to show government at its worst is a good thing. If some of the humor is lost on someone and then they don't participate then I think we are better off. He's got to be doing more good than harm.

Besides if this is the result of viewing the Daily Show's coverage of politicians then the Daily Show is doing its job: "The results showed that the participants rated both candidates more negatively after watching Stewart's program. Participants also expressed less trust in the electoral system and more cynical views of the news media, according to the researchers' article, in the latest issue of American Politics Research."

Sounds like it's causing people to question their government and those than run it. Thank god. Only in George Bush's America would questioning your government be considered bad for your country.
