But where’s my circus?

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert break union solidarity and return to their TV shows—that’s not the headline any of the pro-corporate news outlets puts on this story but they should. The Huffington Post’s comments summarize the reactions I’ve seen to this: apparently it’s okay to chastise late-night talk show host Carson Daly for having new shows during this writer’s strike, it’s not okay to chastise Stewart/Colbert because they host “funny” shows that don’t “blow” unlike Daly’s show.

So while Viacom is trying to convince the strikers that there’s no money in “new media”, Viacom sued YouTube for a billion dollars.
