Fox News to develop rival to The Daily Show. As you can imagine, it sounds like a complete trainwreck. In fact, you have to wonder whether the co-creator of 24 (which might also explain why I've never really got on with that show) has ever watched TDS:
"The way I look at it, almost every comedy show or satire show I see uses the same talking points against George W Bush and Dick Cheney. The other side hasn't been skewered in a fair and balanced way," he said.It's not a partisan show. It exists to mock. And it does, from the right, to the left, to the people that make human-flavoured tofu and truck drivers demanding their right to throw urine-filled cups out of their lorries. The Fox equivalent sounds like it's just going to be a shrill copy that'll spend most of its time calling Nancy Pelosi the Wicked Witch of The East.
