We’d heard that CNN only discussed the latest IPCC report for two minutes — compared to an average of 22 minutes by other networks, including Fox — but Jon Stewart makes that hilarious as only he can. It involves strategically placed ping-pong balls, a hot tub, and “canine dogs.” Watch:

Oh, CNN. Why don’t you use your “hologram rooms, virtual reality rides, and random street yelling,” as Stewart asks, to cover an ACTUAL big story? You know, one that deserves all the shouting and special effects you can sling at it? Apparently that’s not as interesting as “what a dog somewhere might or might not be smelling,” says Stewart.
