NEW YORK, NY – CNN reported that an arrest had been made in the Boston Bombing on Wednesday. Their “Exclusive” scoop turned out to be wrong. So wrong that the network spent an entire hour apologizing for screwing up so royally.
Stewart skewers the network in the video clips below. He ends up making this conclusion, “We’re accustomed to 24 hour news networks thriving on conflict. Generally, though, that conflict is between two outside parties-political opponents, pundits-but CNN’s reporters have discovered that they can remove the middle man and spend hours of programming fighting amongst themselves.”
