Message to Jon Stewart-- quit 'bumming out' the young people or they won't vote!
According to this article from the Science Blog watching the Daily Show makes young people more 'cynical' and less likely to vote.
Folks may remeber this Jon Stewart guy as the same guy who advised Paul Begala and Tucker Carson, the hosts of 'Crossroads,' that they were... "hurting America." "Stop, ...stop it now..." he implored them while on the stage of their shouting match CNN attempted to pass off as a televised debate show.
You have to wonder how Mr. Stewart ( goes to Washington) would handle the same type of criticism leveled against him from 'Sciencey' Blog? I mean, the criticism must be legitimate, it's Science Blog after all. Science is their first name.
I'm sure there couldn't be anything in today's political climate ( war in Iraq) that Mr. Stewart could lay claim to that might be the cause of the cynicism young people profess to harbor for their political leaders (poker and hookergate) and regarding their civic responsibilities. (Vote?-Diebold security issues in touch screens.) Nah...I didn't think so.
