The Video Ticker: Thomas, Ensign, Geist, Stewart

> NBC’s Ann Curry interviews her “inspiration” Helen Thomas on the “Today’ show. (Worth it for Chicago’s “You’re the Inspiration” intro.)

> CNN’s Dana Bash tracked down Sen. John Ensign outside his office for an exclusive interview on the way through his hallway and across the street. The backwards camera-walking deserves to get nominated for something.

> MSNBC’s Dr. Nancy Snyderman got together with “Way Too Early” host Willie Geist to answer some difficult health care questions. (@williegeist1)

> On the Daily Show, Jon Stewart reviews the media reaction to the IOC’s announcement that Chicago would not be getting the 2016 Olympic games. He also does an impression of CNN’s Ali Velshi. (Starts at the 5:00 mark.)

All the vids after the jump.
