Do you watch comedy news programs, like "The Daily Show" to get your news, or watch the real thing?

I much prefer "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" over the actual news. Watching or reading local news often leaves me feeling angry, fearful, saddened, or disgusted with the events that are presented. I really don't like hearing about the crimes and incidents that happen. The national news tends to be less emotionally jarring for me, but it's usually boring. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are much more entertaining and I end up hearing about what happened in the news through them. The only problem is when they have their breaks, then I go a week or more without knowing what's going on
