<p>On 12 December 2012, <em>CBS This Morning</em> shipwrecked its aim to be hard news alternative to ABC's Good Morning American and NBC's Today show, as its only coverage of the passage of the right-to-work law in Michigan was a clip of Comedy Central's Jon Stewart ripping the legislation. Anchors Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell laugh on air in reaction to Stewart's shtick, with O'Donnell adding, "<strong>That's pretty good</strong>."<br /><br />The liberal <em>Daily Show</em> host poked fun of the "right-to-work" phrase: "It's really a right to work around the union for the corporation. <strong>It's one of those things that are actually named for the opposite of the thing they do, like strip bars call themselves 'gentlemen's clubs'</strong>....<strong>Or the TV network dedicated to making us stupider is called The Learning Channel</strong>."</p>
