Cable news channels pulled out all the stops for their coverage of Monday night’s supposedly historic blizzard. But it was clear by Tuesday morning that they’d gone overboard, and no single news personality was singled out for derision more than CNN’s Don Lemon.

Over the course of CNN’s late-night coverage, weather experts repeatedly noted that New York City could be spared the worst of the storm and may see far less snow accumulation than the approximately two feet originally predicted.

Still, Lemon rode through the largely deserted streets of the city in what the channel a “Blizzardmobile.” He repeatedly noted that any non-emergency vehicle driving on the street in New York after 11 p.m. was breaking the law.

Twitter users mocked the coverage:

In a nod to the Twitter chatter, Lemon said on-air that “people have been talking about the Blizzardmobile, but that’s what it is. We were mobile out in the storm.”

“When a city as big as New York City, the biggest city in this country, when they have sent everybody off the streets, when they close down the subway system, that’s a big, big deal,” he added.

Some other eagle-eyed viewers caught some flubs in Lemon’s coverage, as well:
