It was very loud, and quite heated. “This is the courtroom scene from ‘A Few Good Men’ after a case of Red Bull with the volume knob cranked to 11,” said Matthew Felling, an analyst with the Center for Media and […]

Who could possibly argue that Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show isn’t the smartest show on TV? Check out this “School House Rock” spoof on midterm elections… (note: the views expressed therein are not those of ACS. But come on, it’s pretty hilarious…)
