Jon Stewart isn't a newsman, a reporter, or a correspondent. But he is an honest broker of ideas in a time when it's needed to separate the PR noise from the daily news, and that he does better than anyone else in the media.
Sarah Palin, Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh have figured out what progressive media have not. If only heard and commented upon by their own audiences, like Fox and their radio stations and Facebook page, they would not amount to very much.
Yes, Glenn Beck would likely conjure a grand conspiracy in sending someone named "Whitehouse" to the Supreme Court, but as a sitting senator it would be difficult for Republicans to filibuster his nomination.
Is there anyone who can possibly make the case that America benefits from being the only country in the world that endorsed the Israeli attack on the flotilla? Does Beck really believe that American and Israeli interests are identical?
