Clue/Question:  Where the comedian gets his daily news.

Answer:  THE FUNNY PAPERS

(A nice little send up to Mr. Stewart and his Daily “news” Show!  The show is extremely funny, and it delivers a tongue-in-cheek account of a number of actual news reports.  Very popular with the 18 – 49 crowd, and even us cranky 54 year olds enjoy it.  I don’t remember the numbers, but a certain segment of their audience gets all of their news by watching only The Daily Show.  On the surface that may sound alarming, but when you considered the cloned and canned crap the corporate media continues to force feed us, like the foie gras geese that we are, who’s to say that they are wrong?  I still think it’s a little lazy, though.  I still watch the network and cable news shows, but I just turn the bull shit meter up to high.  The corporations have co-opted the news in order to control the dialog.  They can sell all they want.  There’s nothing that say you have to buy it.

Today’s clue words kind of lulled me in, with two simple jumbled words.  Then they clobbered me with two toughies!  None of the words were new, but it took me a while to get “annual”, and I actually had to write out 7 combos before coming up with “fiasco”.  I wouldn’t blame anyone who had to back into either of those two words.  The answer letter layout was great.  It might have been hard trying to back into any of the clue words, because the answer is actually not correct, when you think about it.  Jon Stewart takes real news and makes it into something entertaining.  He doesn’t take entertainment and try to pass it off as news.  Oh, well.  I still enjoyed it.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
