“This Just In…” A Fair and Balanced Daily Show

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Via Think Progress comes a great tidbit reported by Forbes today. It looks like Jon Stewart has some future competition. Fox News and Joel Surnow, the executive producer of “24,” are scheming to put together a news satire show for the right. Surnow thinks it’s time for the left to have it handed to them, Fox News style. “The other side hasn’t been skewered in a fair and balanced way,” says Surnow. The working title for the show is “This Just In” and is set to air this winter, on Saturdays during primetime. The impetus for the show appears to be the change in power in Congress and Surnow wants to be ready: “By January, we will have a whole bunch of new people to do material about.” Watch out Pelosi.
