Best Thing You’ll Watch Today: The Daily Show’s Take On ESPN’s Reporting Of Michael Sam

Jon Stewart and The Daily Show are one of the best programs on cable these days. His deadpan humor mixed with the complete and utter mess the world is in right now is a refreshing way to watch the news.

They took a break from politics to focus on the absurd reporting from ESPN on Tuesday. During the broadcast, ESPN correspondent Josina Anderson began reporting on the showering habits of St. Louis Rams Michael Sam, who revealed he was gay prior to the NFL Draft.

The internet went bananas and Sam’s teammate Chris Long summed it up perfectly. Equally as perfect, though, was the take that Jon Stewart and his correspondent Samantha Bee had.

Bee claimed that Michael Sam was making the other players uncomfortable by not acting “hetero” enough.

“His work on the line has been great, but he’s been making his teammates very uncomfortable,” she said. “He hasn’t been getting naked around them all! There’s been no grab-ass, no dick-snaps, no ball-cupping. None of the locker room behavior of normal heterosexual NFL players.”
