Sometimes I lose touch and find myself living in my own little world. No matter how often I vow to read the news at lunch or stop to watch it after work, I don’t feel like I’m up on current events. Part of my lack of desire to stay in touch on a daily basis is because most news shows are either so depressing or so ridiculously sappy. Enter shows like The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, and Last Week Tonight. Yes, I realize these shows are not really news programs, but they often take a different tack on issues that regular news outlets don’t.
I had no idea Puerto Rico was in such a sad state. I’m very curious if Lin-Manuel Miranda’s plea for assistance for Puerto Rico garners any support. SPOILER ALERT: his performance at the end of the show is terrific.
