Last night, Jon Stewart mocked the media for its rampant and wildly speculative coverage of a so called mystery missile off the coast of Los Angeles. Despite the high likelihood that it was a jet, the Post fired off its own East Coast version with this opening salvo: “First California. Now they’re shooting at Queens!” Cause clearly, an errant “missile” headed out to sea story isn’t sensationalist enough, this baby needs a specific target.
