Bears: You Know You're Scared

Perhaps my favorite show though is The Daily Show with Jon Stewart which breaks down the current events and political happenings of the day and exposes a light onto different problems in our nation. It usually deals with federal dealings, but pieces by ‘correspondents’ are the funniest parts, as they make fun of situations that many can relate to and also highlight everyday people who may or may not be in on the joke. The humor is both subtle and in your face, and the multiple layers are a welcome change to a formerly stale atmosphere. It's also spun off The Colbert Report, which is basically a mockery of everything Bill O'Reilly and other in-your-face 'news' guys. Stephen Colbert stays in character for interviews he conducts and even off the show. It just makes for good television.
