""Does anyone have any actual evidence of this?"
Somebody posted a link to a story about Jon Stewart. I didn't look at it closely. A comedian might not be the best source of news info. But, sometimes he and Colbert say things that no one else does."
I did. And I don't know that I'd characterize Stewart as a comedian. Unlike Faux News, he doesn't generally make stuff up, he just informs his audience about various subjects in an often humorous way. I remember when Bush2 was running for reelection, someone (sorry, don't remember who) did a survey to see how correctly informed people were - pitting those who watched Faux News with those who watched Stewart's Daily Show. The folks who watched Stewart were much more correctly informed than those watching Faux.
Anyway, the Stewart piece on gun legislation is pretty enlightening. It should be easy enough to verify his 'facts.'
