Jon Stewart Grills CNN for False Report of Boston Arrest

Facebook

“The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart used the opening six minutes of Wednesday night’s broadcast to blast CNN for misreporting that an arrest had been made in connection to the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

CNN “exclusively” broke the story that an arrest had been made. It used unidentified sources and never released a name of a suspect.

Within 30 minutes, CNN was forced to retract that statement as Boston police and the FBI vehemently stated that an arrest had not been made and that anyone saying so was “ahead of themselves.”

Watch Jon Stewart take CNN to task in the video below.
