I'm not too heartbroken since you can still basically watch a full show by just watching all the clips in order (which it will handily do for you). Colbert is still totally blocked though which is really Heartbreak

Geoblocking happens because rights are sold to broadcast the show in the country concerned, and the local broadcaster therefore needs local eyeballs on the local channel/website/ads, not the US channel/website/ads.

1) In Firefox, Go to tools->modify headers
2) From the drop down box on the left select add
3) Then enter: "X-Forwarded-For" in the first input box without the quotation marks
4) Enter: "12.13.14.15" in the second input box without the quotation marks
5) Leave the last input box empty, and save the filter, and enable it
6) Click the 'Configuration' tab on the right then proceed to check the 'always on' button.

Close the Modify Headers box and it should work.

Works a charm for me. How long this header spoofing will last given that it has been cunningly hidden on the official daily show forums is anyone's guess though.

No, I tell them they get the news equivalent of FOX news if they don't pay up. If they ask me what would be so bad about that, I tell them to watch the Daily Show.

I guess we have it better, because our people are simply uninformed (and uninterested) and not missinformed.

To be fair our version of publicly funded television breeds it's own kind of stupidity. I'd gladly pay 20 per Month to get BBC level of quality (altough even that seems to be on a downwards slope these days) but for german public televison?

German public television has been envisioned to be a truly neutral source of information without partisan influence or the need to make commercial viable programming with all the subtle possibilities for influence that enables. After WW2 and the National Socialists, the allies and the new german government felt that what they needed was radio and televion which could not be influenced by politics. That's why the government can't even collect the fees for the TV licence and the networks do this themselves.

Cut to today where the board of directors for the two public television networks consists solely of members of the ruling parties, where nearly half of the budget is made with commercial advertising, where the programming of both public networks is a bastardized version of the private networks' programming, where Editors in Chief get bullied out of office because a local Governour is pissed off by the neutral reporting.

There are still quite a few pearls of programming especially on the smaller special interest channels but this gets drowned out by a neverending stream of musical variety shows (Volksmusik), daytime soaps, the movie equivalents of women's pulp fiction, celebrity 'news' programmes and cooking shows.

You could easily do a german version of the Daily Show. We just don't have the personalities for such a show.

Olbermann is not good at being funny.  He's good at being outraged.  Although lately he isn't even as good at that.

Yeah, I didn't read it as petty; it seemed more to me like Olbermann didn't want to have to come up with a segment that night, so he spent most of his time running a pertinent Stewart clip instead.    awesome, for real

Generally I agree with olbermann but he has the same problem people like hannity or rush have and that's the need to be outraged.  Being ok or just politely disagreeing with the opposition doesn't get ratings.  I don't even think it's a concious thing,well for olbermann/hannity I think they are true believers so to speak but over time you find yourself getting pushed to the fringe more and more until a republican or democrat can't sneeze without you getting upset.

So in short, I'll just go with stewart and say olbermann is better than this but he can still fall into the same trappings as so many on the right.
