Why do we have to rely on a comedy show to present to Americans, what the news media should be doing without hesitation. The upside down political nature of the Republican Party is ripe for parody, sure, but it's also perfectly suited to provide the same entertain value cable and prime time news viewers, and isn't that what the networks are dying to accomplish?
Take this simple bit of research by the writers of the Daily Show. Obama's move to put in place a small piece of the Dream Act dealing with deportations, mirrors other previous administrations that made similar decisions. This should embarrass the hell out of "serious" all news channels. What, not enough time in the day to do a little work?
