The Daily Show and Fox News

Watched the last episode of the Daily Show (the first part(~5 min) and the second part (~5 min) – both of them are essentially about the same) yesterday. This is really too much.

And the simple calculations from the second part make this episode probably the saddest among the recent ones. Stewart was great as usual. Structure of the US debt
