SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Jon Stewart is apologizing for mentioning a Southern California death in a list of police shootings of black men.
"The Daily Show" host responded Friday to criticism from the San Bernardino County district attorney.
On his show Monday, Stewart mentioned Dante Parker in the shooting list.
Parker died in August after he was jolted with a stun gun during a scuffle with sheriff's deputies. The coroner concluded he died from a drug overdose and cardiovascular disease.
Stewart apologized to District Attorney Mike Ramos in a Twitter message that said it was "sloppy" to put Parker in the shooting list and promised a TV apology would come next Monday.
