Life imitates art

Actually, journalism ignores comedy, but that just doesn't have the same ring.

Jon Stewart lays it out for the cable news blatherers. To their credit, CNN gives a summary that had to sting, starting with:

Jon Stewart took after the "established" media for getting too cozy with candidates and regurgitating campaign spin when it comes to political coverage.
Then, McCNN proceeds to fill its Political Ticker with abject propaganda from two Republican political operatives who don't even try to find anything but a way to spin Democrats. And McCNN "balances" them with Bill Schneider, who is not only center right but who seldom misses the chance to push out some vacuous RNC mantra - "No one will mention Obama’s middle name here."

McCNN is still not Fox, but it's willing to be Fox if that will get it laid. Or MSNBC. Or even Media Whores Online, if it could just figure out which way is the right was to get on its knees.
