Roland Martin’s Ascot May Be Jon Stewart’s Favorite Thing on CNN

Jon Stewart spent five minutes on “The Daily Show” last night discussing CNN’s Roland Martin and his genteel, on-air ascot. Stewart can barely contain himself for most of the segment, saying, “It may be my favorite thing I’ve seen on CNN.”

CNN’s recent ratings issues also get a couple of jabs, but its mostly about the ascot. As regular news viewers know, Martin is no stranger to splashy fashion, on air and off. (Martin’s been spotted rockin’ the ascot at both the RTCA and WHCD in the past few months.)

More: CNN tells us Martin will be responding tonight to the ascot segment on “Campbell Brown.”
