Jon Stewart Diagnoses Nancy Grace and Her IV of Human Tragedy

The Atlantic Wire

The night after adding The Daily Show's own conspiracy theory to our ongoing CNN Split-Screen-Gate investigation, Jon Stewart had some interesting ways to describe Nancy Grace and the perverse joy she seems to get from tawdry crime stories like the Jodi Arias trial. "Engorged tragedy tick," was one descriptor. Stewart also had some theories about how Grace sustains herself. "That's not rouge on her cheeks," he said. "She draws youth and vitality from human tragedy."

So how will Grace go on, now that the Arias trial has concluded  Well, she's moved on to Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro, naturally. Though she says he "makes her sick" (emphatically) Stewart counters: "He doesn't make you sick. He give you life."
