Zimdecision 2012: 'The Daily Show' Mocks George Zimmerman's Media Coverage (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

After weeks of investigation, protests and media speculation, George Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin on Thursday. If the case wasn't already well-publicized, it's about to be. Since the state of Florida permits cameras in the courtroom, every hearing can potentially be televised.

Foreseeing the media circus to come, Jon Stewart took a few minutes on Thursday night's "Daily Show" to imagine what the next few months are going to be like with his correspondents. (Spoiler alert: they're all going to want to cover it.) He's calling the melee "Zimdecision 2012," and it's already starting.

So if you hadn't been anticipating everyone from CBS to the Lifetime Network to be weighing in on Martin's trial, it's probably best that you gear up now while there's still time to brace yourself.

Watch the video above and then check out this clip from Thursday's episode so you'll be 100% up on your Zimdecision coverage.
