News organizations turn to random Twitter account holders instead of vetting facts with proper journalistic integrity and authority. (3:00)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

NOW, I'M GOING TO ASSUME BY NOW

YOU'RE ALL FAMILIAR WITH

TWITTER, THE SOCIAL NETWORKING

SITE THAT'S BECOME AN

INCREASINGLY POPULAR OUTLET FOR

NEWS ABOUT JUSTIN BIEBER.

DID YOU ALSO KNOW IT'S A GREAT

FEEDBACK DELIVERY SYSTEM.

>> WE'VE BEEN ASKING YOU YOUR

FAVORITE FAST FOOD GUILTY

PLEASURE.

>> LADY BIG MAC ON TWITTER.

FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES.

>> Jon: WHAT?

FIVE GUYS IS LADY BIG MAC?

ISN'T THAT LIKE THE QUAKER OATS

DOING AN AD CAMPAIGN FOR FARINA?

FINE.

THEY GOT 24 HOURS TO FILL.

THEY'RE JUST HAVING FUN.

AT LEAST THE LEVEL OF TWITTER

QUESTIONS IS AT THE PREFERRED

CHOICE IN CHOPPED MEAT SANDWICH

CHAIN LEVEL.

>> WE WANT TO KNOW IF A

POLITICIAN'S PRIVATE

TRANSGRESSIONS MATTER TO THEIR

PUBLIC LIFE.

>> LADY BIG MAC SAYS, "CHARACTER

MATTERS."

>> THE DECISION BY THE PRESIDENT

NOT TO GO PUBLIC WITH THE BIN

LADEN DEATH PHOTO, WHAT DO YOU

THINK?

>> LADY BIG MAC WROTE US ON

TWITTER, "THE PRESIDENT IS

RIGHT.

WE DO NOT NEED TO SEE PICS OF

OBL."

>> Jon: AGAIN WITH LADY BIG

MAC.

THOSE ARE NOT BURGER-BASED

ISSUES.

IT'S TOUGH TO CARE ABOUT HER

OPINION WHEN ALL I'M THINKING

ABOUT WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS

IN A LADY BIG MAC.

TWO ALL-BEEF PATTY, SPECIAL

SAUCE, LETTUCE, CHEESE, PICKED

ONIONS ON A SESAME SEED VAGINA.

TRUTH IS THERE ARE 45 MILLION

PEOPLE ON TWITTER, AND I'M ONLY

ISOLATING ONE NETWORK GETTING

FEEDBACK FROM LADY BIG MAC.

I'M SURE THERE'S MORE PEOPLE OUT

THERE.

>> DO YOU THINK CASEY ANTHONY

WILL BE CONVICTED?

HERE'S WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY THUS

FAR.

SHOELACE SAYS, CASEY ANTHONY

SHOULD BE CONVICTED.

>> MR. SWISS CHEESE TWEETS,

GINGRICH'S BIG PROBLEM WILL BE

THE BLINGING IT 187 SAYS RIM ON

TWITSER.

>> DIAMOND DAVE 56 ON TWITTER.

>> MR. GERMANY WRITES.

>> HORSE FLY 1013 SAYS.

>> BE STRONG TWEETED "DOG FART."

>> Jon: YOU KNOW, THAT REMINDS

ME, DOG FART'S WORDS TODAY ARE

AS MEANINGFUL AS THEY WERE THEN.

IS THIS SO WRONG?

WE WANT PUNDITS VETTED.

I WANT TO GET MY NEWS FROM NEWS

PEOPLE, NOT RANDOM PEOPLE WITH

AN A.O.L. ACCOUNT.

THIS WAY THE FACTS CAN BE VETTED

AND PROCESSED WITH PROPER

JOURNALISTIC INTEGRITY AND

AUTHORITY.

>> GROVER NOR WORCESTER WAS NEWT

GINGRICH'S BUTT BUDDY.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Jon: [BLEEPED] IT.

I HOPE LADY BIG MAC AND DOG FART
