The Daily Show is full of Newsiness

It’s no joke: IU study finds The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to be as substantive as network news: “Interestingly, the average amounts of video and audio substance in the broadcast network news stories were not significantly different than the average amounts of visual and audio substance in The Daily Show with Jon Stewart stories about the presidential election.”
Perhaps this says more about the lack of substance in the network evening news programs than in the amount of substance in The Daily Show.
