    Can Stewart, Maddow, Oberman and a very few others be able in less then a day do research and come up with very important information, at this time about the guns and gun lobby, with a number of points for each segment and the National Media can't do their reporting in same with supposedly tons of well paid researchers behind the anchors?

    Oh wait, never mind, the so called real media are bottom line corporations and their extremely high paid anchors and execs gotta concentrate on who's funding that bottom line outside of even the advertising minutes, so those packages can increase as they get rid of them bottom feeder, no trickle down, researchers for quality, hmmm, sounds like most corporations and big business today!!!

        Sure there are reports that Actually are journalistic quality and give not only facts but point to where those are, but they are few and far between and drowned out by the way too many that don't, print and televised and in the case of televised cut for a string of ads, which brings us to the reason you gave, they don't pay attention because they'd have to search deep to find them!!!!!!!!!

        By the way, reason Stewart and Colbert and a few others are so popular, they bring it out in very easy form and like I said get the research on done in only a few hours before telecasting!!

          always much more about journalism than television was

          and while it is true that Stewart and Colbert do a good job, I would counter that by saying it is very unfortunate that the American people need their journalism delivered to them in form of comedy. This may say more about the country than it does about the news.
