Good editing! "Fake news lives up to its name" Is that referring to the Daily Show or Neal Justin and the Strib?

What most established media do not understand is the Daily Show is a play on them! The MSM needs to wake up and do some actual reporting on actual NEWS.

I'm going to the Daily Show taping on friday. Anyone have recommendations on where to park? I received "reserved standby" tickets via email. What the heck does that mean? :)

I was at the taping yesterday and the article if fairly accurate. The audience usually needs a kick in the pants to wake up after a lulling 3-4 hour wait in line. Maybe Neal didn't have to put that time in. Then the actual show is shot within 45 minutes so having our experience extended with an entertainer of Paul Mercurio's caliber was appreciated.

We walked past a few public parking garages and the majority said "full". I would recommend the bus, getting the right one (ours was 74) can put you within blocks. I think that is why the Metro bus driver in the audience got such a great reaction, they were the best option for downtown St. Paul.

Congrats: Worst article I've read in years.. And it doesn't help that the title contains "but they're aren't talking." Have you ever been to a taping of ANY show? They all have a pep-talk session before hand. They all have "clap for dummies" time.. having a top class comedian to make this a bit more special is a good thing. Really, try to actually know *something* about what you're reporting on. As far as the SamB part.. IT'S FREAKING TV!! never as good seeing it taped as it is when broadcast. Also I'm kind of curious.. "mostly liberal, mostly young" Did you poll the audience? Young is pretty easy to spot but liberal? Were they wearing political party hats? This is supposed to be "real" news.. try reporting it for a change.

The Daily show is not a fake news show. It is a satiric news show. There is a huge difference and Justin's not understanding that diifference should disqualify him from ever having another article published.
