To Kill a Mockingturd

Posted: May 3, 2011 by kellyrachael in Uncategorized

After the death of Osama bin Laden, the big time networks were reporting strictly news stories. Veteran news anchors broke the story with straight faces and said how this was a great defeat for America. Younger reporters glorified the event as a whole and showed excitement and pride while discussing the events. Over the corse of the next two days the news was everywhere, and it was about time for TV personalities to start mocking this event. Take the remarks of veteran host of the “Daily Show” Jon Stewart. In his most recent broadcast,  Jon spend the first ten minutes of his fake-news show skewering Osama. Although his method is much different then the conservative tone of regular news broadcasts, many people forget that he is not an anchor and it is not his job to report of the news. It is his job to offer his opinion about it. That is why everyone tunes in to watch anyway right?
