Stephen Colbert on the media’s coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing

Stephen Colbert starts with his take on the ricin mailings to Congress and the White House, and then pivots to the Boston Marathon bombing and the now-infamous announcement that a suspect had been arrested yesterday, when he hadn’t been.

I posted Jon Stewart’s take on CNN (and all the rest) getting the arrest wrong earlier today – you can watch that here.

It’s not a long clip, but it’s cute.

    It’s just a cover up for CISPA.

    I confess to being annoyed with the media for spending way too much time speculating and obsessing on the incident when so little was known.

    Colbert also did a hilarious sent-up of the Brad Paisley ‘Accidental Racist’ song.

    His version is the “Oopsie-daisy Homophobe” — complete with a duet with guest star, Alan Cumming
