Typical Safe Politi-Comedy Journalism
15 April 2019 | by boohooglandSee all my reviews

Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas is the typical pandering biased current event show presented as journalism that has devolved and deformed from the John Stewarts legendary, The Daily Show. This is a show so safe, it must have been conceived by an artificially intelligent algorithm crunching twitter buzzwords, HBO demographics, and CNN headlines.

Issues are presented so unevenly and with so much moral weight to one side, that any ounce of journalistic integrity is destroyed immediately. Instead of presenting both sides to viewers and letting them decipher the truth for themselves, Problem Areas spends equal time presenting the facts and preaching morality to it's viewers. This show's arguments are so poorly conceived and full of logical fallacies, it ultimately lacks any power to change any viewer's perspective or behavior.

Problem Areas not only fails at journalism, but also fails at humor. Wyatt Cenac's jabs are sluggish, dull, and devoid of any novelty with jests so played out and stale that they would make for better bingo cards than jokes.
