Episode Summary

EDIT
Christopher Walken
AIRED:
Tonight, actor Christopher Walken promotes his new movie Hairspray. Jon begins tonight reporting on Louisiana Senator David Vitter, who recently was found to be on the D.C. madam's phone list. So you think the Bush administration can't sink any lower with all the scandals surrounding them right now, well Jon has a surprise for us in a segment called "You Have No Idea!" Former Bush administration Surgeon General Dr. Richard Carmona was not allowed to speak at the Special Olympics because the Kennedy's support the Olympics. Also, Dr. Carmona had to mention Bush in a positive light at his speaking engagements, a minimum of 3 times. His homophobic replacement Dr. John Holsinger was a worthy replacement, as Jon notes from Dr. Holsinger's reports writing in graphic detail about a scientific basis as to why homosexuality is abnormal. Finally, Jon reports on the Catholic church sex abuse scandal in a segment called "Hot & Fathered". The church settled the case with 508 abused victims for $660 million. As Jon notes, half the money comes from the church's sex abuse insurance coverage and it will all be distributed according to the degree of abuse, as assessed by the insurance claims adjuster. L.A. Correspondent Samantha Bee gives Hollywood's reaction to the settlement.moreless
