The Daily Show On Recent Headline Topics genre: Hip-Gnosis & Tongue-In-Cheek & Video-Philes

Jon Stewart and Samantha Bee cover the latest headlines with The Daily Show's typical irreverence. In the first clip, Stewart gives the viewer a primer on the appointment of James Holsinger as Surgeon General...including some insight into the plumbing metaphor.

In the second clip, Stewart explains how the Catholic Church's settlement of the sex abuse claims in the Los Angeles Archdiocese will be resolved. Apparently, the money will be distributed based upon an evaluation of the nature of the sexual abuse...or as Stewart suggests, everyone will have to report to the claims adjuster for a determination.

In the final clip, Samantha Bee gives us an update from LA on the reaction to the huge sex abuse settlement. Her report is offered in a format reminiscent of an E! for "entertainment" segment. Her report also includes some "statistical" information on the most popular religions in the Los Angeles area.
