As Jon Stewart reported on last night's Daily Show, members of the White House press corp are vying for Helen Thomas's coveted front-row seat now that the long-time correspondent has resigned in disgrace. It's getting pretty heated too. After Bloomberg sat in the seat, Fox News launched mortar attacks, and CNN later sent suicide bombers into a cafe on the left armrest. Fortunately a peace summit is planned for this afternoon where NPR will recommend everyone take turns sitting on each other's laps.
For more on the Helen Thomas story, Stephen Colbert's take can be found below.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
