  1. So funny that he’s the most trusted! I remember him as the funny comedian type guy from way back when — wasn’t he on like mtv or something like that?!

  2. Actually both Stewart and Colbert do actually have a lot of real news stories. They just joke about certain parts of speeches or opinions but they tell audiences a lot about current events in the political scene in ways that younger people find interesting. And the way Stewart exposed Jim Cramer and ripped him a new one? Truly a brilliant moment in news history.

  3. I’m delighted the Jackson children now have a surrogate mom to love and care for them, someone they already love and know. Katherine is too old to raise young kids, but this leaves old belt-buckle Joe out of the picture entirely, and, since he was already evaluating the children’s entertainment (read $$$) potentials, it’s good that he won’t have a word to say about their futures. Let them if they want to; they’ll find their way with real love and a comfortable homelife they can depend on.
