Ashleigh Banfield ‘Digging In’ on Wake ‘Em Up, Despite Jon Stewart Take-Down

“The Daily Show” took on CNN’s “Early Start” segment “Wake ‘em Up” where anchors Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin call up a Kennedy, or Ru Paul, or an unsuspecting man who isn’t Chuck Nice.

But Banfield is not going to let the criticism from her “absolute hero,” Stewart, get in the way of the segment. “You know what?” said Banfield, “If you thought you were going to tear us down, my friend. You’ve got another thing coming, Jon Stewart. Because we’ve decided to notch it up.”
