I got a great birthday present last Friday, when I read Comedy Central’s announcement that David Alan Grier will host a new show entitled “Chocolate News,” a sort of Black newsmagazine version of The Daily Show. This could be hilarious.
But would Grier have a consistent source of material to satire, I wondered.
Well, today, former right-wing Republican Congressman JC Watts has announced that he is launching an African-American news channel. But don’t worry: he promises us that it will be fair and balanced.
One wonders whether the folks at The Onion think that everyone is stealing their material.
