Media Softball: Daily Show Defeats NBC Nightly News

TVNewser has an important report from the field today. The softball field, that is.

Last night, Kevin Allocca trudged all the way to the west side to cover an epic softball battle between Jon Stewart and members of the “Daily Show” staff and NBC‘s Brian Williams and his “Nightly News” crew.

Williams and his “Most Trusted Team” were handily defeated by Stewart and the “Daily Show” bunch, 12 to 2, but Williams was a good sport.

“We have the advantage at the end of the day because we make the news that they parody,” he said post-game, after accusing Stewart of recruiting players from the major leagues. “Without us, they don’t have the raw materials.”
