Jon Stewart Mocks CNN's Failed Reporting of Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect (Video)
'The Daily Show' host Jon Stewart mocked CNN's self-described "exclusive reporting" of the arrest of a Boston Marathon bombing suspect, which turned out to be false (video below).
Stewart said CNN's reporting was “exclusive” because it was “completely f*cking wrong.”
He said that CNN's report about a "dark-skinned suspect" was a “news story as imagined by M. Night Shyamalan,” reports Mediaite.com.
Stewart also called CNN "the Human Centipede of News,” a play off the gruesome horror film "Human Centipede," in which several people are surgically attached via nose to another's buttocks.
The Daily Show's correspondent John Oliver joined the segment and claimed that the authorities had a new bombing suspect in custody, but added "which I cannot confirm, but will say."
Oliver then described the suspect as a “dark-skinned male, possible white, or maybe a woman. It could be a manish-woman or an effeminate man," which he retracted seconds later.
Earlier today, Special Agent Greg Comcowich of the Boston division of the FBI warned the media about its coverage, reports DailyCaller.com.
“Contrary to widespread reporting, no arrest has been made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack," said Comcowich. "Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate."
