So Kerry was on the Daily Show. I watched. What I thought was interesting though was the fact that Jon Stewart pointed out that it was fake news at least a dozen times over the course of the broadcast.

I guess that's what he thinks he has to do when he knows so many people are watching that the non-sense-of-humored will be in his fold. Razz Kind of like the warning that needed giving to the towns in Alabama that got all up in arms about that Onion article about Harry Potter. Laughing

Yeah, but he only mentions that it's fake news like once or twice during a normal broadcast. This time around it was definatly different. I kind of wonder if Kerry wanted it to be pointed out numerous times as a contingency for his appearance on the show.

What I meant by "so many people" is that the crowd watching such an important figure likely drew a lot of newcomers (including people who don't get satire very well). My guess is that Jon Stewart was letting the uninitatiated and satirically handicapped in on the joke - or at least letting them know what they're watching. *shrugs*

So my guess it was more the Daily Show than Kerry's idea.

So if Kerry appears on a fake news show does that make him the fake Presidential Canidate?

And yet it isn't too. They really don't make up news, they take what's already there and just add (and embellish (sp?)) a funny side to it just like most of us do when we talk to each other about stuff in the news. I like when Stewart tore up the ad made by the Swift Boat committee.
