Cable news, and CNN in particular, is already such a compromised, pandering mess that it seems beyond parody. Still, there is something hilarious in the idea that a journalistic doofus like Ron Burgundy -- all hair and over-enunciation -- was the first to float the concept that shaped 24-hour news as we know it today. The scene in which Ron arrives at that brilliant idea is a perfect example of the goofy-smart humor of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
