Filed in National by on January 29, 2013

This is so much awesome — John Oliver doing the Daily Show investigative report into why investigative reporting is dying in American newsrooms. Once more — The Daily Show commits an act of news that neither the news networks or newspeople could manage (approx. 6 minutes):

    At first, I thought the comedy skit was about how ABC’s Martha Raddatz, during her interview with Sen. Bob Menendez, failed to mention him being the subject of an FBI probe into him soliciting underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, CBS’s Steve Kroft’s (admitted) softball interview of Obama/Clinton, the lack of coverage of he Bengazi debacle, the corruption of the SEIU, or that NAACP President, Benjamin Jealous, says black people are worse off then when Obama took office. Then, I remembered where I was.

    City of Wilmington just going to be getting worse over the next 4 years.

    Unfortunately, Miscreant, what qualifies as a comedy skit on Fox News, the Daily Caller, Rush Limbaugh or your usual wingnut hangouts just looks like heapin’ helpin’ of the usual resentments that your fevered conspiracy theories are getting just about the attention they deserve.

  4. cassandra_m says:

    And now we get to see WHAT makes this a conspiracy:

    The investigation is believed to be focusing on Melgen’s finances and the allegations about Menendez’s trips and contact with prostitutes. A spokesman for Menendez could not be reached for comment, nor could Melgen.

    This story can’t even CONFIRM why the FBI is raiding this man’s office. But they can mention a rumor about the prostitutes, but the detail is in this doctor’s financial issues.


    Like I said, this is the kind of bullshit that flies in your usual braindead haunts.
