Why Are Comedy Shows Our Best Sources of Information?

Well… maybe they’re not our best sources of information.  But why are Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show and Stephen Colbert’s The Colbert Report so frequently and so substantially more informative than our newspapers?

We invite any newspaper to show us how they have elaborated the misuse of 501(c)(4) organizations like this (Colbert Report, 9/29/2011). The test is not whether they did it better or worse than Colbert, but whether they even bothered to try.
