They May Be Stoned, But They're No Slackers

Something to bear in mind about our databased age, when making cracks about a certain group of people make sure there isn't any data that can turn you into the butt of the joke. In the aftermath of a John Stewart appearance on the Bill O'Reilly's The O'Reilly Factor, Comedy Central did some research into the demographics of the two shows. It turns out that the viewers of The Daily Show with John Stewart are probably not the stoned slackers as O'Reilly characterized them. According to the research, the Daily Show audience has a higher rate of college education than O'Reilly's.

The CNN article did note, however:
Comedy Central had no statistics on how many people watch "The Daily Show" stoned.

I have sometimes wondered if being stoned helps in watching the news, regardless of the source.
