Damn you Dan Rather. And damn you CBS. It is now possible that John Kerry may lose this election because the clearly biased CBS was so eager to take down George W. Bush that they didn't bother checking a few facts before hitting the airwaves, and that just sucks. Let's face it, there is a liberal media and there is a conservative media. Unbiased reporting is as rare these days as a classy Britney Spears wedding. It's up to us to understand these biases and put them through our own filter to determine the truth. We have to fact check their ass, which is why we have blogs. Thank god for blogs.

Damn you CBS. I thought The Daily Show had a monopoly on fake news. But really, if we're all so worried about being lied to and misled, it's the Bush administration we should be concerned with, not CBS. Hey, they got some bad intelligence - it's not like that's never happened before.

And hey, Terry McAuliffe, shut the hell up! Let it go man, let it go...

Speaking of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart was on The O'Reilly Factor (ack! it's difficult for me to even type that) the other day for a tete-a-tete with Mr. No Spin Zone himself. Wonkette managed to recover the transcript, illegally no doubt. Some choice highlights:

O'REILLY: Puppets can't vote, but these dopey kids who watch you can.
STEWART: They actually can -- in Florida, they can.
O'REILLY: Puppets can vote in Florida.
STEWART: As long as they vote Republican.


O'REILLY: But you do have some influence. Now, how do you see that? You have influence. John Kerry bypassed me and went right over to you. You're only four blocks away. He said, "O'Reilly, I don't think so. Stewart, I'm going to go talk to you."
STEWART: Well, I have to tell you -- and again, I mean no disrespect, but the snack selection backstage, quite frankly...


O'REILLY: That's true. But what do you want the audience to get out of your discussion with Kerry? Just yucks, or anything else?
STEWART: First of all, I shall rarely refer to it as yucks, and I think you should reconsider. O'REILLY: OK, I'm sorry about that arcane term.
STEWART: "Shnicks," we call it shnicks -- shnicks and giggles.

Read the rest of the O'Stewart Factor here. So best!
And buy America (The Book) here. Study up.
