Jon Stewart Mocks CNN & Fox News' Amusing Michigan Primary Coverage (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Another week, another GOP primary election in this "Long, Winding, Bumpy-Ass Road to the White House." On Wednesday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart recapped the very close race in Michigan Tuesday, saving most of his jabs for the 24-hour cable news networks instead of the candidates.

With final voting results not coming in until after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Stewart wasn't surprised to see CNN and Fox News using some amusing tactics to fill airtime. On Fox News, Megyn Kelly killed time by arguing over the semantics of "home state" vs. "native state," as in Mitt Romney's tie to Michigan, and on CNN Wolf Blitzer laid the fake excitement on a little too thick for Stewart's taste.

"The last time I saw someone so excited about numbers changing it was a vampire made out of felt," Stewart joked.

Again on CNN, Anderson Cooper's long trek from the main news desk to "The Cube" (or "Nerd Terrarium" as Stewart put it) was funny on it's own. When he arrived and found out the "breaking news" was that Romney and Rick Santorum were basically tied, his "Post-Cube, no information walk of shame" had Stewart flabbergasted:

"What was CNN thinking with that one?!"

Watch the full clip above, and stay tuned until the end to see Stewart spoof CNN's "Cube" with "The Best F*cking News Box On Television" in his own studio.
