Jon Stewart Mocks CNN's Coverage Of Jodi Arias (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart took CNN to task on Wednesday for its coverage of the Jodi Arias trial.

The network has gone all in on the salacious court case, but Stewart had some bones to pick.

The "Daily Show" host was particularly tickled by CNN's infamous decision to have Ashleigh Banfield and Nancy Grace talk to each other via satellite on a split screen -- even though they were in the same parking lot in Phoenix.

Wondering why in the world they wouldn't just stand next to each other, he came up with some theories. "It's like Ashleigh Banfield has a restraining order against Nancy Grace," he guessed.

Watching footage of Grace struggling to hear Banfield through her earpiece, he added, "Here's an idea if you're having trouble hearing. Take your finger out of your f---ing ear, because she's right there!"
