“Daily Show” censored in UK for comedic use of Parliament video

I didn’t know, until I watched this, that it is illegal in the UK to use video clips from Parliamentary debates for satirical or comedic purposes.

(If you live in the UK or someplace else that bars direct access to Comedy Central clips, do this.)

If you live in the UK, perhaps you can even get in trouble for watching this. So pull down the blinds first.

And well done to Jon Stewart for visiting US forces in Afghanistan.
