Jon Stewart delivered a signature takedown of the cable-news media's coverage of the Washington Navy Yard shooting Tuesday night on "The Daily Show." But his heaviest criticism was aimed squarely at CNN, for what he called "breathless wrongness" and described as general chaos and frenzy during non-stop coverage of the breaking news.
