The irony sustains me.

Wow, Bill O'Reilly...

The last person I want criticizing other media is anyone who works for Fox News. Bill O'Reilly honestly believes that everyone who watches the Dailey Show uses it as their number 1 news source. I'm sure that some people might actually use it that way, but most people just watch it for entertainment (that's why I watch it).

"In some young precincts, it is hip to be dumb, cool to be uninformed. In fact, you're a geek if you know a lot about current events."

I don't know what young people Bill O'Reilly is hanging out with (I feel sorry for those kids), but where I am, I see it the other way around. Being dumb has never been "hip" to me (using the word "hip" proves that Billy has no clue what he's talking about).

I actually know a lot of people that get their news from the Daily Show rather than anywhere else. While I do think that's better than being completely uninformed, I think it's really, really stupid.

As for the FOX News bashing: I don't really like FOX news, but seriously, get off of the whole "FOX News is conservative propaganda" crap. Really, with the exception of Sean Hannity, 'O Reilly, and John Gibson, it's not nearly as bad as it used to be.

It is as bad as it used to be. It's completely biased in every sense of the word. They really are a joke.
