The Daily Show Rips CNN for Programming Cuts (VIDEO)

“The Daily Show” is always a witty 22-minutes of weeknight fun. However, on Monday they really got some extra applause from me for a segment on investigative journalism.
The key to this particular clip is that Jon Stewart & Co. totally deflated CNN for its cuts to the investigative journalism department. Using an interview with a former CNN employee, correspondent John Oliver took a very sarcastic hit at the news network that in so many words thinks deeper stories don’t create enough profit.
It was hilarious!
I always kinda feel bad for CNN when it come to Stewart’s show. As polished as they are, his team easily finds glaring faults in their operation.
