Inauguration 2013: Cable news gets the 'Daily Show' treatment


Monday's inaugural ceremony (Reuters)

Another low-hanging-fruit moment for "The Daily Show": Take the most insipid moments from cable-news coverage of Monday's inauguration festivities, throw in some zingers and present to the public.
