“What the hell happened to CNN?” the comic asked on last night’s The Daily Show With Jon Stewart. He skewered the network for its branded news segments such as Political Pop, No Talking Points, Political Gut Check, End Point, R&R, Street Level, Today’s Rock Star, and Your 15 Minutes Are Up. ”I’m not against news organizations having fun,” he says. But “most of your segment titles have no bearing on the news within the segment.”
