The “Colbert Report” host slams his “colleagues in the 24-hour news game” for “yanking theories out of their ass-star.” Last week, while the pundit was away on vacation, there was little information to report on the tragic Malaysian Airlines plane disappearance but that doesn’t mean there weren’t tons of absurd stories being churned out on MSNBC, CNN, Fox News and other so-called news outlets. The desperation to fill TV slots reached such an extreme level that CNN even brought on a psychic. That’s right, a psychic.

Watch Colbert expose the cable news channels’ ridiculous coverage.
