The Daily Show More Entertaining than "Real" News

Apparently viewers of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is watched regularly by more college aged people than regular news. And those viewers were more likely to have negative opinions of the candidates.

The first part of that can be explained by the simple fact that The Daily Show is humorous in its presentation of the news. The real thing straight up is simply depressing. As for the second part... How many of us, even those who vote regularly, have confidence that any of the candidates aren't scumbags?
