Inside Move: Stewart skewers Headline

'Daily Show' comic lambasts cabler's new format

Jon Stewart isn’t afraid to speak his mind — even if it doesn’t toe the corporate line.

Tuesday night on his cabler program “The Daily Show,” the comic lambasted Headline News even though Comedy Central is co-owned by AOL Time Warner, parent of the recently revamped news net. Mocking the net’s attempt at reaching a younger aud, Stewart said its new slogan should be “Dude, Where’s My News?”

Stewart next took aim at the net’s new graphic-heavy format, saying it’s geared to “viewers with short attention spans and zero tolerance for complexity or nuance.” But, he did find one upside to the new design: “When they don’t feel like it, reporters don’t actually have to say anything.”
