Agreed. Part of why Stewart gets some of the traction that he does is that aside from being truly engaging with his chosen audience (and I think Stewart's is a bit broader than Becks), the qualilty of news outlets has declined to such a degree that not-newsmen are just about as informative, sometimes more so.Jon Stewart is an equal opportunity fun-poker. And sadly, as entertainer he delivers better news than the news outlets....
In truth, I haven't listened to Beck for long enough at a stretch to form an opinion of how informative he actually is. I don't care for his delivery or his manner all that much, and some elements of his platform simply rub me the wrong way.Beck on the other hand....Instigator is more like it.
