Tonight, journalist Ted Koppel.
Politicians on television programs us common folks watch are prevalent this week as Jon begins the show by looking at President Bush and Laura Bush on American Idol & Hillary Clinton on The Insider. As the 4th anniversary of Bush's mission accomplished on the aircraft carrier fiasco loomed large this week, the Democrats passed the Iraq funding bill only to have it vetoed by Bush in a continuing show segment, "Mess O' Potamac". Finally, snitchin' is not hip in the African-American community. Just ask Cam'ron, a rapper who made it clear that those who snitch to the police about crimes in the community, even a serial hugger who lives next door, have no street cred and thus sales of their rap albums suffer. Senior Black Correspondent Larry Wilmore talks with Jon about the ethical implications of this stop snitchin' phenomenon and the rappers code of "effix".
Forget the 24 hour biased left wing news media, the best fake news show in the world will provide you with all the news you can handle.
If you're tired of the stodginess of the evening newscasts, if you can't bear to sit through the spinmeisters and shills on the 24-hour cable news networks, don't miss The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, a nightly half-hour series unburdened by objectivity, journalistic integrity, or even accuracy. The Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Daily Show takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports and entertainment with an alternative point of view.
In each show anchorman Trevor Noah and a team of correspondents comment on the day's stories, employing actual news footage, taped field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events and finally interviews with guest celebrities and political figures.
