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.

In this segment, we have Jon Stewart pointing out ideologically incompatible takes on the events from MSNBC and Fox News (what a shock) as well as CNN obsessing over the first lady’s fashion choices. It’s what happens when you have an entire day of coverage with almost no news.
