As it occasionally does, “The Daily Show” dedicated a segment to CNN last night. While MSNBC and Fox News are routinely mocked on the show for their partisan pandering, the CNN critique was focused more on the gimmickry the network has rolled out over the last few weeks, like computer-generated goats, and a replica of Jodi Arias‘ apartment.
“I’m not sure it’s wise to have virtual goats when there is a guy named Wolf in the building,” Jon Stewart quipped.
Of course, as noted by CNN senior digital producer Steve Krakuaer, the next segment, which focuses on the delay in veterans benefits, was built off of original reporting… from CNN.
