Comedic news casts

Its not often that I watch the late-night comedy shows. Tonite Jay Leno is doing his normal schtick bashing the administration. In the span of about 60 seconds he used the bogus AP story about the “Katrina briefing” the President supposedly received, the bogus CBS poll showing the President’s approval rating at 34%, and the “fact” that the Dubai Ports deal was going to transfer full control of US ports to a foreign firm as setups for his jokes. I wonder how many adults actually listen to those set ups and assume those facts are real?

Scary thought.
