โ€˜Fuck It, Letโ€™s Go Nuts!โ€™ Stewart Tears Apart CNN for MH370 Coverage

Jon Stewart returned from a week-long break Monday night to pillory CNN for its insane, over-the-top MH370 coverage, saying they had about a minute of good coverage before going, โ€œOh sh*t, weโ€™ve got 23 hours and 59 minutes left to fill. Fuck it, letโ€™s go nuts!โ€

Stewart mocked that โ€œblack holeโ€ nonsense and asked, โ€œWhy donโ€™t we just strap some wings to Wolf Blitzer and let him loose?โ€ Stewart was surprised at CNNโ€™s ratings climb amid this wave of coverage, saying there are clearly two newsworthy stories here because โ€œthe only thing less likely than an airplane falling out of the sky is CNNโ€™s ratings doubling.โ€

Stewart also had some barbs aimed at Fox News, whose younger viewers โ€œare just coming into the room to make sure their parents are still breathing,โ€ and MSNBC, where Ed Schultz decided to ask his viewers what they think about the plane because why the hell not.
