The Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper died today.

Comedy Central should form a news team, hell, a news network, around its Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert core group. Comedians of the "left" seem to be much more informed then the "middle" wing of the various mainstream news media.

Stewart understands that he needs the news networks to actually provide him some news to work with. But that seems less probable as the few outfits left coalesce into a few rightwing corporate news organizations.

The liberals need to move. We need more newsrooms, with clearsighted reporters and a lack of "balance".
