I haven’t seen The Daily Show or The Colbert Report in ages. The American Comedy Central site is blocked in Canada, and the Canadian site you get re-directed to isn’t Mac compatible. For a while, the new Daily Show website worked here. Now, it just shows a never-ending string of ads.
These shows were the only television news I had ever watched with any regularity. Until their online infrastructure changes, it seems that print and web sources will be my sole connection to the mass media.
[20 August 2008] Ashley has kindly informed me that full episodes of The Daily Show and the Colbert Report are available in Canada through CTV.ca. It looks like I won’t need to set up a special US proxy system after all, though Pandora may still tempt me to do so.
