The Daily Show and Philosophy vy Jason Holt (Ed.)

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as thought I would. There are interesting essays about media analysis and the philosophical relevance of various parts of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. The main problem with the book is that many of the essays were not sufficiently different from the others; this was especially true in the first half. So, while worthwhile overall, I would recommend only reading parts of the first half of the book.

Useful or not, the work did reinforce my belief that Stewart & Colbert are the current high point of intellectual satire.
