Rather's segment, a mock report about Richard Nixon eating a burrito in 1973 (clip below), keyed off Sean Hannity's slam of Barack Obama for requesting "spicy mustard... or a Dijon mustard" on his cheeseburger the other day.
It's awesome that Rather went along with this, not only because he actually was a TV journalist in 1973, but also because his Laugh-In delivery style provides a nice break from the fake-news-show's relentless (if smart) sarcasm. If this fake news up-and-comer plays his cards right, maybe he actually make a name for himself inside a vaunted news organization with unquestioned dominance over the industry (Comedy Central).
