Chong Exposes Absurdity of Paris Hilton Coverage [VIDEO]

First of all, I don't get why Tommy Chong was being invited on MSNBC in the first place to discuss Paris Hilton's trials and tribulations. I guess because he's a celebrity who's had brushes with the law? Anyway, the network's Contessa Brewer clearly wasn't prepared to be confronted by someone who'd point out how ridiculous it is that Hilton is being covered so voraciously while the guys behind Enron and a similarly negligent Mel Gibson have been generally given a pass by the mainstream media. Check out the video to your right to see the footage and Stephen Colbert's take on it.
