You have my permission

I’ve often used clips from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report in my communication classes.  Last fall, the two of them were a major focus of my Theories of Humor course.  This semester I’m going to ‘give my permission’ to my students to watch each of the shows as ‘supporting research’ for my classes.  One of my favorite, recent clips is on the topic of our record income gap between rich and poor.  Many say that the topic of increasing taxes is tantamount to class warfare.  But who exactly is this war against?
