Isn't it time that your news was delivered in bite-sized, funny, essentially fact-free form (on purpose)?
Every time a 'free lunch' bell rings, an econ teacher blacks out.

It's December, which means it's time once again for The War on Christmas, or as it's now known, The Global Struggle Against Yuletide Celebrationism. I'd love to be out on the front-lines fighting it myself, but as you know, I've got candy canes where my hands used to be after my sleigh came under heavy tinsel fire last year. Anyway, here's what Jon Stewart had to say about the bloody affair on last night's Daily Show.
Meanwhile, Jon's interview with former Joint Chiefs Chairman Hugh Shelton went long last night, but you can see the entire unedited segment after the jump.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was voluntarily gave himself up to authorities in London last night and is currently fighting extradition to Sweden, where he faces jail time — for twice having sex without a condom — and possible extradition to the United States, where some politicians want to have him executed for releasing kind of embarrassing information that was provided to him by a member of the U.S. military.
Yes, this is a for real thing…
Mr. Assange was ordered to remain in custody until a further court session on Dec. 14, the latest twist in the drama swirling around WikiLeaks following its publication of leaked documents.
Mr. Assange's associates said his detention would not alter plans for further disclosures like those it has made in recent months relating to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and, over the past nine days, disclosing confidential diplomatic messages between the State Department and American representatives abroad.
"Today's actions against our editor-in-chief Julian Assange won't affect our operations: we will release more cables tonight as normal," a posting on the WikiLeaks Twitter account said.
The world collectively shudders in anticipation of horrific gossip memos will be loosed upon this frail global village.
