Okay, the study doesn't say that (and actually, I suspect that NewsHour wins that one), but it certainly seems to be true when you consider that The Daily Show often has 1/3 to 1/2 less time per half hour to do "reporting" because of the tail-end interview (though sometimes it's a political guest).
If you need me to draw the conclusion here, it's that the "real" news organizations have been doing a crappy job. But you already knew that.
In other news, the concept of Limbo is going away. Rather than endorse birth control, just rearrange the netherworld. Easy peasy.Posted by mike at October 5, 2006 07:47 AM | Daily Show
