Writer's Block: Comedians as Journalists

Distrust of the media has grown to the point where many people only trust the news if it comes from a comedian. Who do you trust more: Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart?



Neither. I love them both. I want them to fall madly in love run off to Canada and move in with Rick Mercer. S/J/R (C/S/M?) ftw!

And y'know? It's a darn good thing I don't write RPF anymore.

That was awesome! You are the only other person I've encountered who knows who Rick Mercer is. (down here in south Florida). Props to you!

Rick Mercer is made of utter awesome. He should be world-famous, yessir. There are a few of us Yanks who are fans. :)

I would run off with either of them- or preferably both of them. I see no distinction really - they are so intertwined both personally and professionally that I cannot possibly trust one more than the other. The important point is that I trust both more than I trust Bill O'Reilly or Tucker Carlson (ha!), and anything after that is just gravy.
