    We say goodbye to the month of June as we hose down with some SPF and head for the beach. First let’s take another look at the best of June 2012. In a seemingly endless election season, one thing we have to look forward to is the nightly skewering of the news media by the comic geniuses at The Daily Show. The person responsible for bringing it to life is comedian and writer Lizz Winstead, who talks about her life and career in her new book of essays, Lizz Free or Die.

    In a seemingly endless election season, one thing we have to look forward to is the nightly skewering of the news media by the comic geniuses at The Daily Show. The person responsible for bringing it to the small screen is comedian and writer Lizz Winstead, who talks about her life and career in her new book of essays, Lizz Free or Die.
