This is the place to stick anything you happen to find that could be relevant to this comm. Got a favorite clip of Daily Show pwnage? Got a clip where somebody failed really, *really* badly? Read an article about fakenews and hipster racism? Sick of me writing in questions yet? Well, please post them here! This way, I'll have things to prompt a weekly discussion thread and everybody has a nice resource post for TDS/TCR srs bsns materials

Analysis of Olivia Munn's first TDS appearance on Racialicious :

A Thin Line Between Stereotype and Satire

Excerpt: The Daily Show creates a strange dynamic for those of us who watch television through an anti-racist lens. They simultaneously lampoon racism while perpetuating it behind the scenes (and sometimes on camera), but one has to admit the make up of the Daily Show is a far cry from the inception of the show.

They also speak about the small number of women on the TDS writing staff and the conflagration of racism and sexism. Interesting read!

So here's a link to the various clips of Colbert's "Ching Chong Ding Dong" character, (including his response to the criticism) followed by a link to the comic I posted about it. (It's at the bottom of the archive page for Secret Asian Man.)

Here's that "behind the scenes" article about Daily Show interviews written by the president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
