Dany's RaaD Roundup

The Daily Show Weekly Roundup

In my constant attempt to keep up with the week’s absurd news, it’s time again for my Daily Show roundup for the week of October 12th, 2009:

CNN‘s constant lack of actually digging deep into any issues or arguments, but instead, just leaving it there.

A DC protest is only as good as who is actually protesting and apparently none of the major cable news networks (CNN, MSNBC and Fox News) found a gay rights march on Washington, DC worthy of as much airtime as the tea party protests.

John Oliver spends over 10% of The Daily Show‘s airtime (over 3 minutes of a 30 minute show) covering the gay rights protest in DC.

Giant baby gets denied health insurance and apparently Senator Olympia Snowe is the savior of Health Care?

When both Republicans and Democrats were outraged at ACORN with their latest 2009 undercover video scandal and passed a bill to defund them, the reaction from 30 Republican Senators to further clean up government contracts with Senator Al Franken‘s bill against keeping contracts with companies that squelch lawsuits by victims of rape is the worst show of hypocrisy, but I am glad the bill ultimately passed.

H1N1 Swine Flu, what’s more dangerous this year, getting sick with the flu, getting the flu vaccine, that there might not be enough flu vaccine for everyone this year or should we just FEAR EVERYTHING for fear’s (or cable news’) sake?

As the RNC Chairman, Michael Steele, attempts to revamp the image of his party, he not only inadvertently condescends to the black community, youth and a tech savvy generation, he ends up turning himself into the much maligned Microsoft Clippy and reveals that the RNC has no unified focus or message to build on.
