Fake News Shows Influence Bloggers

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote an excellent article in the latest edition of “Rolling Stone” magazine. The whole piece is a must-read – I especially like the following paragraph:

A recent Indiana University study found that The Daily Show was just as substantive as network television news during the 2004 election. I’m not surprised that young people who watch it are well-informed. I read about ten newspapers a day and three newsmagazines a week, and I have my TV tuned to cable news all day, and I still find myself taking notes from The Daily Show.
