|Jon Stewart eviscerates media over J. Crew coverage|

On last night's "Daily Show with Jon Stewart," host Jon Stewart called out the major television news outlets for their recent coverage of a J. Crew ad that features Jenna Lyons, the fashion house's Technical Director with her son and his pink toenails.
Ever anxious to point out the absurdity of cable news coverage, Stewart was on point in a segment entitled “Toemageddon – This Little Piggy Went to Hell.”
Check out the video below:
As if someone actually needs to say it, but Stewart is absolutely right. Tons of little boys have their toenails painted by their moms, sisters, cousins or whoever.
What if Lyons' son grows up to be gay or trans - does that even really matter? More importantly, is it even news-worthy? I think not.
