    Pretty sure Colbert, Stewart and other American comedians will do segments on wars, mass murderers and general injustices that involve death and destruction that will garner laughter. Itīs probably because you don't get the jokes that you find it offensive, but they're all at the child rapists expense.

    Mmm, maybe. I still think Jon Stewart has more class when it comes to topics as horrible as this.

    I don't find the things the hosts are saying very offensive at all... just the audience's giddy laughter.

    I like Stewart but he comes across as a bit of an actor. I don't buy him when he goes into "solemn" or "outrage" mode (though usually for the purpose of a punchline so I forgive him).

    The audience laughter was sometimes inappropriate, even when the points made were meant to be serious, but they were there for a comedy news show and were probably in such a mood. Regardless, a comedy news show canīt avoid a major story and they can't pick and choose which they will/won't make jokes about.

    Sadly, John Peel hasn't escaped accusation either.

    It may well be that back in those rock n' roll times, groupies were all too common and nobody was asking too many questions about ages, enabling those such as Savile to fly under the radar, and effectively as they said on HIGNFY, hide in plain sight.

    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    The Boy Scouts, the RCC, the BBC, Penn State.....apparently, child rapists are everywhere and there is no place you can blindly entrust a child to AT ALL.

    are you talking about pedophilia here, or balling an underage tart?
