Thursday night on The Daily Show, host John Oliver mocked CNN over its “Rock Block” segment. He noted CNN had managed to both “sucked the fun out of rock and the weight out of news.” Oliver said the segment was similar to how British people cooked food: it was neither tasty nor nutritious. “Rock Block” was the journalism equivalent of boiled meat.
