Stephen Colbert didn't waste any time jumping on the media's reporting of an arrest made in relation to Monday's Boston Marathon bombing. CNN was the first to say that a suspect had been arrested, but that information was later proven to be false.
After John King said that authorities had detained a "dark-skinned male," many other media outlets immediately parroted the claim, only to have to walk the erroneous information back. Colbert summed up the events, saying, "[There was] no arrest, but at least we haven't wasted any precious time not being suspicious of dark-skinned males."
Check out the clip above to watch Colbert make fun of CNN's blunder, as well as discuss the ricin scare at the White House.
