CNN’s Carol Costello: ‘Screw You, Jon Stewart’

By Mark Joyella 

Jon Stewart may have given up his nightly perch at The Daily Show, but it seems CNN’s Carol Costello has not forgotten his jokes, which often came at CNN’s expense.

“Everybody says ‘Oh, no publicity is bad publicity.’ But frankly, I’ll just be honest with you–it did bug me,” Costello told SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah about Stewart’s frequent segments about CNN and, at times, Costello herself. “It’s easy to cherry-pick, and then you slam somebody. Sometimes we deserve it, and sometimes we don’t…I do try to block it from my mind.”

“I will say this about Jon Stewart. He doesn’t go to congressional hearings and sit through them for five hours like our correspondents do. He doesn’t do that,” Costello said on SiriusXM show The Insight Hour Wednesday. “He just takes our work and makes fun of it. So sometimes I find myself saying ‘Screw you, Jon Stewart’!”
