Fox News is Killing MeBlendover Episode 158:

Recently, Jon Stewart announced he is leaving The Daily Show, the show he hosted for over 15 years. On one episode, he implied one of his reasons was that Fox News was “killing” him. Granted, it was jest… but it opens up many discussion points. Blendover examines this, & the role of The Daily Show in US Politics. Also, our Craniumelody artist this episode is Ed Harrison.
