In an article on HuffPost, recent footage from The Daily Show is discussed:

Wednesday night on "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart hit Karl Rove and Bill O'Reilly with damning evidence of their hypocrisy regarding Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

While Rove recently praised Palin's experience as the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, Stewart showed video of Rove trashing Virginia Governor — and former Richmond Mayor — Tim Kaine's executive experience, listing all the cities that are bigger than Richmond and calling such a pick "political."

Then, after recent video of O'Reilly describing Bristol Palin's pregnancy as a family issue, Stewart showed a clip of the Fox News host blaming Jamie Lynn Spears' parents for her teenage pregnancy.

Why is Stewart's investigative reporting better than that of traditional press?

Don't know, why is it "better"? I guess a more sensible question would be, why is it so one sided?
Oh, I must have forgotten about B.O.'s infallibility and dearth of hypocrisy. My mistake.

Fox News host Sean Hannity is now referring to his programs (radio/tv) as alternative media.
How do you define alternative media?

Jon not only has to come up with interesting stories, he has to be funny and entertaining. Like Tim Russett audience, Jon's expects him to dig deep and in return Jon (as Tim did) can expect his audience to engage their brains.
In short I’m saying that Jon can do this type of segment because his audience allows him to.

UPDATE: folks, sorry, sometimes we attract people who make things up.
John Stewart, brilliant? Wow. Come on people. His scthick is old and he is part of the long line of racist Democratic lapdogs in the media. These multi-millionaires have nothing in common with the common folk.
