I had a chance to chat with Lizz Winstead, the co creator of the "Daily Show," while she is touring the country in her car in support of Planned Parenthood.
Winstead, who recruited Steven Colbert to the Daily Show, has mixed emotions about the “Daily Show” being the primary source of news for many. “It shows that the news media is derelict,” she noted. “They are easily distracted by Casey Anthony or Anthony Weiner instead of pursuing subjects of substance.”
She urges “viewers to do their own investigation of the news.”
