CNS Turns Another Jay Leno Joke Into A 'News' Article

The NewsBusters-ization of is continuing apace, for reasons nobody's sure of.

For the second time this month, CNS has made a "news" article out of a Jay Leno joke. From the Jan. 23 article by Eric Scheiner:

Tonight Show host Jay Leno took a jab at the attendance levels for President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.

“On the news they made a big deal out of the fact that four years ago there were twice as many people at his first inauguration as there was at this one, “ Leno said on Tuesday night’s broadcast,  “Well, yeah, that was because four years ago twice as many people could afford to stay in hotels.”

According to USA Today and other news reports, attendance was significantly lower for Monday’s inaugural ceremonies than for the inauguration in 2009.

Yes, that's a "news" story. Apparently, CNS has stopped caring about journalism and just wants to do right-wing stenography.
