Anyway, here's the take on it from a student at Providence College:
In the past, society has followed a general trend from ignorance to tolerance. Take the case of the African-American in our country. Actually, let's not. How about the example of The Daily Show. Many years ago, The Daily Show was hosted by Craig Kilborn. Soon, Kilborn was replaced by current host, Jon Stewart . Some people did not like this change because it was new, and sometimes things that are new are scary. And it is OK to be scared, as long as we realize that our fears are foolish and ungrounded. Stewart has brought The Daily Show to unprecedented levels of credibility and popularity. Anybody still claiming that today's Daily Show will never top the good ol' days with Craig Kilborn and "5 Questions" is a lonely weirdo with poor social skills and little understanding of culture.I only started watching The Daily Show regularly this past school year. While home I watched the 10 AM rerun on Comedy Central.
