As the Trayvon Martin saga continues to unfold, Jon Stewart scolded filmmaker Spike Lee for inadvertantly releasing the hounds on an innocent Florida couple via Twitter. In case you missed the story, Lee retweeted what was purported to be the home address of Martin's killer, George Zimmerman, but which was actually the address of Elaine and David McClain, an unrelated pair of retirees.
"Yes, sending a lynch mob to the wrong address is a bad mistake," Stewart said. "I gotta say, even if it was the right address, that's still a bad mistake. Sending a lynch mob to anybody's address is a bad mistake."
