Life is funny but it's not a joke

By Libby

Crooks and Liars has the video clip of the week. Jon Stewart goes where the White House press corps fears to tread. Maybe it's something they put in the free coffee in the press room that causes amnesia or maybe The Daily Show has the only staff capable of searching the archives but it appears Comedy Central is the only media outlet with the guts to point out the obvious discrepancies between the initial statements on the attorney purge scandal and the unfolding reality revealed by the hearings.
"Oh," Stewart concluded, "you will reconcile that by -- LYING!"
And they wonder why young people who want to become informed watch a comedy station instead of CNN to get the news?
