          Now I am all confused, I'm not sure if this is a political thread or not. I have always liked the Onion so I will let Josh decide.

            Did you catch the line "Not calling your waitress a Cu-T"? That kind of language belongs at home, not here!
            No matter who is in power, democrat or republican, there will be critism and humor. I prefer to avoid the politics, very disappointing to realize folks are not who you thought they were. You guys have fun proving who is right and who needs to be attacked. I have more important insect probems to resolve.

              What kind of home are you living in?

              Then again, try calling the insects that and they might leave..................

                  I must have missed that part. Though I do find it increasingly difficult to tell the difference between The Onion and say, MSNBC.

                    Ahhh, The Onion. It's taken over where Saturday Night Live and Bill Maher and The Daily Show w/ Jon Stewart have all left off. No stone unturned! No guts, no glory! And no politician left un-tarred & un-feathered!

                      Sadly, these outlets put the traditional fourth estate to shame.

                        Even worse, some can't tell the difference between the two anymore.

                          But these outlets are intentionally MADE to be tongue in cheek, and I don't feel that we can blame them, or say that are putting the "real" news to "shame". They're gleefully making fun of the over-the-top, extreme fanaticalism that politics and "the news" tends to incite in people. Case in point? Political conversations on here, and the fallout that we've all been discussing about it this past few days or so. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case.

                          While I don't disagree with your observations, fellas (both good points), unfortunately the media has been it's own worst enemy. There is indeed nothing left of the "traditional fourth estate" anymore. The main goal behind the news (unbiased and unfiltered spreading of information to the masses) has been mutated by the quest for ratings, market share, branding, shareholder profit, etc. And this has led to people blindly agreeing/under the influence/etc., and not making their own educated and unbiased decisions based on each individual case and it's own individual facts and merits.

                          Even our own CBC is unfortunately slowly starting to steer down the same path. It, like the BBC, has been a steadfast in the unbiased nature of things. Hopefully things can correct themselves.

                            I actually think that the Daily show is more unbiased than most network news.

                              The traditional media (including Fox) lets their interview subjects repeat their talking points. Stewart asks the questions the rest of us would ask these folks if we were sitting in his seat. He is fair and balanced but doesn't let the guest weasel out giving a revealing answer.

                              Of course when someone asks a tough question they skewered for springing a trap (What newspapers do you read?). How dare anyone ask a spontaneous, rudimentary question.

                              Stewart gets away with it, I think, because he is fair about the situation. He lets the guest hawk their wares, he's friendly with them, doesn't call them pinheads or attack them personally. Yet he will challenge the guest to support their perspective sans talking points or the conventional jargon.

                              Colbert, who I find hilarious, is an equal opportunity satirist. My all time favorite interview was when he interview O'Reilly. At one point during the interview, O'Reilly said of himself "This is just an act.". Without missing a beat, Collbert replied "If you're just an act, then what am I?".

                              To the uninitiated, Colbert's on air personality is a caricature of Bill-O. And of course Bill-O is a caricature of Ted Baxter.
