Comedian Jon Stewart found the media coverage of the “Blizzard of 2015” to be overhyped.
The “Daily Show” host tore into CNN in particular for its over-the-top coverage of what he called “Blizzapocalypsegeddon 15″ Tuesday.
Stewart made fun of what he dubbed “anchor in a car” coverage.
“When there’s innovation in the field of newsgathering,” he said. “We look to CNN for its worst iteration.”
Stewart showed video of CNN’s Don Lemon reporting from what he referred to as his “Blizzardmobile.”
“Blizzardmobile? Settle down, Batman, it’s a Ford Explorer. And by the way, with the way you’ve been reporting lately you’re lucky you aren’t in an actual blizzard mobile,” Stewart said as he showed a picture of Lemon in a Dairy Queen ice cream truck.
He also lambasted the network for not following its own reports telling motorists to stay off the road except for emergency vehicles.
“Either Don Lemon and the Blizzardmobile don’t watch their own network,” he said. “Or he thinks all it takes to upgrade a vehicle to emergency status is giving it a name ending in ‘mobile.’”
