Must-see morning clip: Jon Stewart mocks the media's obsession with the cruise ship crisis (Credit: Comedy Central)

When CNN visually “reunited” a vacationer with her family, Stewart mocked the news network, saying: “Yeah, you’re not heroes, guys. It’s not a hostage situation or a baby in a well. You reconnected them? They’re not supposed to see each other… she’s on a cruise for a few days.”
