IU Study: The Daily Show As Substantive As Network News

An Indiana University study finds that The Daily Shows has as much substance in political reporting as the network news. Jon Stewart would be the first to say his show is a comedy show, not a news show, so I would think he would not be offended if I say that this is serious criticism of network news, verifying the arguments that they provide far too little substantive coverage of politics and other serious news.
