I've been catching up a bit with the GOP debate and the last episode of Jon Stewart's run on The Daily Show. While I have only paid scant attention to the debate, I did watch the final episode of TDS, and I have to note that Jon Stewart's final segment was a great coda to his sixteen years of parsing news media nonsense. These are words to live by:
A well-calibrated bullshit detector (whether in the garage or not) is a necessity in this day and age of non-stop marketing. It's nice to see that Jon Stewart ended this phase of his television career with an admonition- it's up to his viewers to do the work now.
