March 25 (UPI) -- Jon Stewart showed no mercy as he raked CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC over the coals on The Daily Show for the deficiencies in their coverage of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

Aside from mocking CNN's borderline obsessive coverage of the flight's disappearance, Stewart called out anchor Don Lemon for suggesting that a black hole, the Bermuda Triangle, and the television show Lost were somehow related to the flight's disappearance.

Fox News gets hit for insensitivity and mocking CNN. Lastly, MSNBC gets ripped for hypocrisy over their statement that they wouldn't be posing theories and would only be providing facts.
