Commentary: Is the media too scared to laugh?

I must make a disclosure: In August, I attended a taping in New York of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. As an audience member, I was told I was a ``part'' of the show, since viewers at home would get juiced by our laughter and applause, and in that regard, I ``participated'' in the program, much of which included political bits and derisive remarks about contemporary bigshots. Yes, I did laugh.
