'Investigative comedian'

That's the term used for KCRW's Harry Shearer by Lloyd Grove in today's New York Daily News. He says that on last weekend's "Le Show," Shearer played an audio tape of Fox News talking head Sean Hannity coaching two nurses what to say during the Terri Schiavo controversy. It was off the air, between commercials on his evening Fox show, and Hannity is heard instructing the nurses how to respond to questions from the show's more liberal co-host, Alan Colmes.
