• Jon Stewart Blasts Wolf Blitzer For Hysteria Over Baltimore Riots

    CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was hammered by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show on Tuesday night for acting shocked about the unrest in Baltimore.

    “It [was] hard to believe this was happening in a major American city,” Blitzer said while reporting in a breaking segment. “I don’t remember seeing anything like this in the United States of America in a long time.”

    Stewart was baffled by the Blitzer’s admission.

    “Elvis leading a herd of orthodox Jewish unicorns through a city street — that would be hard to believe,” Stewart said. “This sh*t happens all the time. Ferguson was just a few months ago, and you were talking about it.”

    Stewart showed footage of Blitzer acting just as apoplectic over the protests in Ferguson last November as Jon Stewart.

    “I am worried about you,” Stewart said. “Do I need to get Adam Sandler to go over to your house and just run sh*t by you every morning?”

    He said reporters have failed to pick up on the recurring nature of urban protests in the US, with Baltimore and Ferguson taking their place among manifestations of turmoil like Watts, Los Angeles, and Miami, among others.

    “These cyclical eruptions appear like tragedy cicadas,” he said. “Depressing in their similarity, predictability, and intractability.”

    Things are so “f*cked up” in Baltimore, Stewart explained, that its most successful employment program was casting extras for The Wire, a show devoted to showing the world how it was breaking down.
