Jon Stewart Read CNN For Ignoring Baltimore Protests for WHCD
We’ve already voted to swap Raven Symone for Jon Stewart in the imagined and glorious race trade, and if he had the nerve to run for president in 2016, we’d intentionally put our feminism in question on whether to vote Hillary over Jon. Now our ultimate political spirit animal spoke up for the voiceless in Baltimore and read CNN and MSNBC for choosing to cover the annual nerd prom, The White House Correspondence’s Dinner over the heartbreaking tragedy, the murder of Freddie Gray and the protests and violent resistance that followed.
In the ‘Daily Show’ clip, Jon Stewart shows CNN’s very brief coverage of the protests in Baltimore and how the reporter immediately switches to go back to the red carpet at the nerd prom.
It should be noted since the WHCD, CNN has picked up on reporting protests in Baltimore.
