CLANCY: All right. Time to take a little bit of a lighter look at the news. Hala and I don't intentionally try to be funny when we're reporting here, but other people do. And the tug of war between Congress and the White House over the firing of eight U.S. attorneys, main topic for late night comedians, Hala.
GORANI: Well, here is a preview of "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart, "The Global Edition," that airs this weekend on CNN International.
JON STEWART, "THE DAILY SHOW": A flat-out denial from Gonzales. You know, in the good old days, that would have been the end of the story. The Republican Congress would have said, huh? What? You didn't? OK. And gone back to, say, building bridges in Alaska to save Terry Schiavo from gay flag burners.
But now, the opposition party controls Congress, and they can perform a very complicated legal maneuver, known as asking for things. Like all the internal e-mails about the matter. Among them, this one, where, quote -- where the man who did the firing admits he'd never even looked at the performance of one of the men that he fired. Another e-mail relating Karl Rove's desire to remove up to 20 percent of U.S. attorneys who are not "loyal Bushies." And this e-mail that says, "let's fire U.S. attorneys for purely political reasons and make sure we keep all the e-mails. PS, I am cheating on my wife with an underaged boy. PPS, seriously, don't delete this."
Yes. Some people, they don't know the power of the e-mail. And I'm sure there's an emoticon that goes with, I am cheating on my wife with an underage boy. Some version of a frowning face.

CLANCY: Well, there you have it.

I know that the show has been on CNNI for years, but I can't help but feel that some of the criticisms directed to CNNI are kind of blunted when people are willing to let this slip through unchallenged.

Great show this week loved the Rod Blagojevich interview, absolutely hilarious.
