Stoned Slackers?

Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, recently visited Bill O'Reily on The Factor. In what may have been a tongue and cheek exchange, O'Reily said.
"You know what's really frightening? You actually have an influence on this presidential election. That is scary, but it's true. You've got stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night and they can vote."
Not wanting to let the misconception persist, they did a little research with the help of Nielson Media. What did they find?:
Viewers of Jon Stewart's show are more likely to have completed four years of college than people who watch "The O'Reilly Factor"
Now, I gues you can still be a stoned slacker and have a four year college degree. I have a Degree, and since I lean Left, by definition the Righties say I am a slacker.

Comedy Central President Doug Herzog was asked how he would describe O'Reilly's audience, he simply stated
"I'm not getting into that game"
O'Reily will be making an appearance on the Daily Show October 7th. It will be interesting to see what Stewart has in store for him.
