Leno on CNN Reporter Robbed in Atlanta: ‘It Was on CNN So There Weren’t Any Witnesses’

Jay Leno took a humorous swipe at the so-called most trusted name in news Tuesday.

Commenting about CNN anchor Carol Costello recently getting robbed of her iPhone while walking down the street in Atlanta, the Tonight Show host quipped, “Unfortunately, it was on CNN so there weren't any witnesses" (video follows with commentary):

Unfortunately, this is no laughing matter for new CNN chief Jeff Zucker.

As NewsBusters has been reporting, CNN's ratings continue to be lousy with sister network HLN actually beating it on a somewhat regular basis.

Maybe all the vulgarity coming out of new Sunday primetime host Anthony Bourdain will help.

Or maybe not.
