Jon Stewart on Sunday compared CNN to the Chucky doll from the horror movie “Child’s Play.”
CNN host Fareed Zakaria asked Stewart to talk about when he turns to CNN for the news.
“When world historical things like the Green movement, the Arab Spring are happening, you turn on CNN and watch these brave correspondents?” Zakaria asked.
“Here’s what I do,” Stewart responded. “I set a Google alert for Blitzer. And then, I just wait. ‘We have a CNN exclusive tonight. The Empire State Building is blue.'”
Zakaria pressed Stewart, and said again that Stewart appreciates CNN’s “brave reporting.”
“The reason why I make fun of certain aspects of CNN is to be inspired by the brave reporting, is to want more. And so, that’s all it is,” Stewart explained.
And so Zakaria asked Stewart if he wanted more CNN.
“I want more of good CNN,” Stewart said. “CNN is very similar to the doll Chucky. Sometimes it’s good Chucky, but you really got to watch out for bad Chucky.”
