WTWTF? CNN asks “Where Are They Now?” of Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle hasn't made another TV series since leaving Comedy Central behind five years ago, nor has he starred in a big-screen movie recently. So he must have disappeared, according to CNN, which devoted a "Where Are They Now?" segment to Chappelle this week.

Where is he now? If CNN simply Googled him, the cable news network would have known that Chappelle and his family celebrated the holidays in Miami, he still lives in rural Ohio, and that he is performing stand-up comedy in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City whenever the urge to perform compels him. But that's not a sexy answer, is it? That's not going to keep you tuned in after the commercial break, is it?

Here's how CNN played it:
