Website TV Squad points out this bit from Jon Stewart's The Daily Show where he calls out on NBC for not reporting that General Electric paid no U.S. federal income tax in 2010, despite earning $14.2 billion in profits.
"To be fair, Libya, Japanese radiation, there's an awful lot going on in the world ... the type of urgent news that would preclude a more esoteric financial story" was Jon Stewart's initial excuse for why NBC Nightly News didn't get to 'The New York Times' report.
But then came the punch-line: Stewart played a clip from Friday's NBC 'Nightly News' broadcast, where anchor Lester Holt had ample time to report on the Oxford English Dictionary's decision to include words such as "Muffin Top" and "Wassup" in their latest edition.
