Lost in the Memory Hole


One of the leading lights in the news media is Jon Stewart and his Daily Show on Comedy Central. This past week he discussed news coverage of the proposed Defense Department budget. Mr. Stewart could not believe that many of the news stories described the budget as a “cut” when it actually increased by 4%.


Mr. Stewart’s analytical depth is inversely proportional to the breadth of his humor, but I wonder if he  remembers the school lunch “cuts” in 1995. Perhaps someone could check the tape of his 1995 MTV VJ talk show to see if he was equally outraged by that misrepresentation.
