Here's my big problem:

I watched the Daily Show when it first premiered in the early 90's, with Craig Kilborn in the anchor chair and all of that… Back in the day, it wasn't liberal-leaning.. in fact, politics were just one small part of the whole show… However, when Stewart took over, it slowly became more political, and more left-leaning.

What I'm saying is, TDS as we know it today evolved into what it is.. The 1/2 Hour News Hour is contrived, reactionary, and mean-spirited.

What's always made the TDS work is that it makes fun of whoever's in charge and whoever is a bit out there. Their best jokes aren't ones that need writing, they are expositions of ridiculous things going on (though this is starting to drop off more and more). You could tell the FOX guys were trying too hard because they needed to squeeze every last drop of potential funny out of a situation that isn't already pretty silly. Because of this strained effort they come off as wooden and the few well-written jokes they have in there are lost to poor introduction and worse delivery.
Handshakes and mustaches are the only ways to know how much you can truly trust a man.
