SERIOUS TOPIC, FOR THE PAST

TWO WEEKS THE NEWS HAS BEEN

DOMINATED BY SCANDAL OF A

PARTICULARLY PUR YENT

NATURE.

-- PURE YENT NATURE.

I FOR ONE BELIEVE THAT IT'S

TIME THAT WE LIFT OUR GAZE

FROM THE GOSSIP FILLED

GUTTER.

THE REAL CHALLENGE FOR NEWT--

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: THE REAL CHALLENGE

FOR A NEWS PROGRAM SUCH AS

OURS IS NOT HOW BEST TO

INDULGE OUR MOST BASE AND

CALLOW INSTINCTS BUT HOW

BEST TO CHOOSE WHICH

IMPORTANT BUT NOW OVERLOOKED

STORY OF IMPORTANCE TO DO

FIRST.

SIMPLE.

A LITTLE EDITORIAL AUTHORITY,

WITH THE HELP OF OUR FRIEND,

A GIANT--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

GIANT-- OUGHT TO DO IT.

NOW I GIVE YOU NOW THE DAILY

SHOW [BLEEP] BLOCKED STORIES

ROUNDUP.

BLOCKED BY THIS RECENT

SCANDAL.

BY THE WAY, LES YOU THINK ME

CRASS, THIS IS THE EXACT

RUBBER PENIS WHEEL EDWARD R.

MURROW USED.

(LAUGHTER)

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNEW

THAT I DON'T KNOW IF YOU

KNEW THIS.

MURROW'S ORIGINAL SIGNOFF

PHRASE WAS GOOD NIGHT AND

GOOD LICK-- LUCK [BLEEP]

WHAT?

WE ACTUALLY GOT THIS FROM

THE RADIO OF MUSEUM, AND

TELEVISION AND DILDO.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: WHILE THIS IS ON

SPIN.

IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, LIBYA.

>> THE UNITED STATES

REPORTEDLY RAMPING UP AIR

STRIKES AGAINST AL QAEDA IN

YEMEN.

>> WAIT, WE'RE BOMBING YEMEN

NOW TOO?

I GUESS THAT EXPLAINS THE

PRESIDENT'S NEW BANNER.

>> OH.

YEAH, WE'VE BEEN SECRETLY

HITTING TERROR COMPOUNDS IN

YEMEN WITH THE COOPERATION

OF THEIR PRESIDENT SALEH.

HOW'S HE DOING?

>> A SENIOR U.S. OFFICIAL

SAYS THE PRESIDENT HAD

SHRAPNEL WOUNDS AND SEVERE

BURNS TO HIS FACE AND CHEST

FROM AN ATTACK ON THE

PRESIDENTIAL PALACE FRIDAY.

THE GOVERNMENT INSISTS HE'LL

RETURN AFTER UNDERGOING

TREATMENT IN SAUDI ARABIA.

>> Jon: REALLY?

HE'S COMING BACK.

I SEE YEMEN'S PRESIDENT

SALEH FEELS THE YEMENI

INSURGENTS WHO LAUNCHED A

MORTAR ATTACK ON HIM WHILE

HE WAS PRAYING WAS A

TEMPORARY SETBACK.

BUT HE STILLS HAS THE

PEOPLE'S SUPPORT ALTHOUGH IF

YOU LOOK AT THE RESULTS OF

THE LATEST PRESIDENTIAL

POPULARITY POLL IN YEMEN, I

BELIEVE THAT'S YEMEN FOR

STRONGLY DISAPPROVE.

BUT IT'S INTERESTING SALEH

STILL WINS
