ICYMI: Sideshow Mel

|

Having picked the gossip bone clean, the media’s first feeding frenzy of Mel Mania is finally over, meaning we can now enjoy the more introspective second course of coverage in which we turn our attention from the three ring circus of the scandal itself to the comical sideshow players surrounding it (or in this case, reporting on it). Nobody is more amused by this smorgasbord of sensationalism than Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, who take this hilarious look at what happens when news programs have a very big story, but very little video footage to support it.
