An Illinois high school teacher has been suspended because he had his students watch parts of "The Daily Show."

Eureka High School teacher Rhett Felix showed three segments of the satirical news show to students in his government and law class. Parents complained the segments had obscenities and sexual content.

Felix was suspended Tuesday with pay. He will be reassigned when he returns to school Nov. 28.

"The Daily Show" segments included discussion of sexual misconduct allegations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. One segment had a joke about another Republican candidate, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum.

One student also complained that Felix regularly criticized conservative candidates and praised liberals.
