The first 2 1/2 months of Jeff Zucker’s rule at CNN have not been kind ratings-wise. Last night, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart took aim at the cable news network for what he called its “lack of direction and utter disregard for common sense.” CNN might take solace in the fact Stewart got wrong how long Zucker has been running “CNN 2.0” — though he got the gig at the end of November, he’s only officially been in charge since January 20, not for the past four months like Stewart said. Also, Stewart went after CNN last April for many of the same reasons, well before Zucker was on board. But still this has got to hurt:
