Professional Journalism Update

It is a sorry commentary on the state of professional journalism when the toughest question that has been asked of the administration about Obama Care comes from a pro-Obama comedian on a show advertised as fake news:

How Obamacare's Exchanges Turned Into A 'Third World Experience' - Forbes: "All you need to know about the rollout of Obamacare’s subsidized insurance exchanges is that, so far, the toughest questions posed to the Obama administration have come from Comedy Central. “We’re going to do a challenge,” Jon Stewart told Kathleen Sebelius on the Daily Show. “I’m going to try and download every movie ever made, and you are going to try and sign up for Obamacare, and we’ll see which happens first.”"
It is a pity this Stewart guy can't get into Obama's press conferences, though at an average of six questions an hour I am not sure that even Stewart could make one watchable.
