You're preaching to the choir, and that's the problem!
Shows like the Daily Show and independent magazines are simply not seen by the people who matter (ie. undecided voters and mis-informed masses).
The type of information contained in many web sites, tv specials, documentaries, books and such is simply not accessed by the people who really need this information.
It is somewhat ironic that we live in such a time when information is freely available for the taking by people who are seeking it, yet the majority of the country seems to be turning into a mass of couch potatoes growing more and more apathetic about everything.
It must be in the food!
