Jodi Arias Trial: CNN's Dramatic Coverage Mocked by the Daily Show (Video)
It seems nearly impossible to keep the state of Arizona off of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but, for once, an Arizona-based segment isn't due to the actions of the state's elected officials.
This time, Stewart gave his analysis of the Jodi Arias trial, specifically, the over-dramatic antics employed by CNN in its coverage of the case.

Of the dramatics, Stewart spends most time skewering CNN's decision to have split-screen coverage of two anchors -- one of them Nancy Grace -- talking to each other . . . in the same parking lot. Six parking spaces away, to be exact.
Stewart also explores the possibility of Phoenix's legendary Bus-Ness Monster being involved. You'll have to watch the video for that to make any sense at all.
