The mockery of Charlie Gibson for being clueless apparently changed some minds. The media embargo on the ACORN tapes has been broken. Today, the New York Times, NPR and Los Angeles Times have informed their readers of the scandal. The Times' spin is almost comic. But far more importantly, Jon Stewart has spoken.
Stewart delivered a hilarious segment, mocking ACORN (and mugging for the camera to great dramatic effect) and the rest of the media. They have now officially become a laughingstock, and the story indelibly framed in the minds of younger Americans, who view Stewart in large numbers.
