Tommy Christopher comments on the Daily Show's treatment of CNN hiring Redstate.com raver Erick Erickson. Christopher inserts a quasi-defense of Erickson's admittedly juvenile commentary:

Therein lies the issue, "without original reporting." Which raises the question again, why is CNN further diluting its journalistic cred with Erick Erickson?
