Whos to blame

The Daily Show : Who’s to Blame

The more I see The Daily Show the more it seems to me to be the only show in America that speaks any sort of sense, out of the American shows I see over in England anyway.  When I see they are talking about the Virginia Tech shooting I can only guess how they are going to laugh about it.  I was glad when they decided to highlight how awful the media gets post tragedy and get into the whole `what one thing is to blame except us` debate.  There is nothing I hate more than ignorant people expressing ignorant views but when they make it onto TV it defies belief and in America they seem to be out right in charge.  I hear about people coming out and saying he must have played computer games, he must have watched movies, heaven forbid it was just the result of a lifetime of choices resulting in one awful act when someone can outright blame one thing to forward their own agenda.

This culture of the easy answer is just so wrong for so many reasons. Why ever bother trying to ban anything when you have a society that allows easy access to guns, there always will be someone out there who will just snap for reasons far beyond seeing a film of zombies or watching some pixels fall down. What is by far the more important issue is what can they get hold of when they do.

Anyway well done Daily Show, your convincing me that not all of American TV is run by the stupid.

    You should also check out ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’, he’s very intelligent and doesn’t mind (in fact seems to enjoy…) pissing people off – it’s not quite as laid back as the Daily Show, but still an excellent watch 🙂 Commenting on current events now hey, i like it!

    As an American who watches the Daily Show as well as reading *cough* other media, I wholeheartedly agree. It’s a breath of fresh air, and gives the most accurate news. Other news shows criticize it for the way they deliver their news, and the Daily Show says, “well, we’re comedy, and, like, on Comedy Central” and then polls come out showing that viewers of the Daily Show know more about the world than viewers of, say, Fox News. Like: where’s Britain, who’s Vice President, etc.
