Jon Stewart — No Big Deal

Jon Stewart takes a look — so to speak — at the story about Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) and the photo that has, apparently, become the Most Important News Story Ever.

As he also notes, the best reporting on the whole kerfuffle has been from blogs, which have actually done the investigating into how someone’s Twitter and yfrog photo sites could be hacked.

But apparently that’s just too much work for the likes of CNN.

PS: Steve M has a good post regarding Mr. Weiner’s inability to get out from under this story: for some strange reason, he seems to think that the same rules about scandals apply to Democrats as they do to Republicans.
