Jon Stewart: Nancy Grace Like ‘an Engorged Tragedy Tick’

Jon Stewart says HLN host seems a little too excited by Jodi Arias case

Jon Stewart says nobody enjoyed the grisly details of the Jodi Arias trial testimony — except perhaps a certain HLN host.

“Nobody slurps each lurid detail like it was a perverse joy, like they were an engorged tragedy tick — wait a minute, is that Nancy Grace?” Stewart asked on “The Daily Show” Thursday.

Arias’ murder conviction this week ends a chapter in the latest case to fascinate Grace, who, Stewart says, “draws youth and vitality from human tragedy.”

Stewart isn’t the first to notice that Grace seems to get reaaaalllly into these cases. And, he notes, a new scandalous crime has appeared just as Arias retreats from the stage.
