Jon Stewart Blasts Fox News For Racist Ferguson Coverage
Via HuffPo reports:
Jon Stewart is back from vacation, and he’s not wasting any time going after one of his favorite targets: Fox News.
The network’s talking heads have been blaming the media for inciting the unrest that has swept through the town since police shot and killed an unarmed black teenager.
Some of them have even claimed that the story shouldn’t be about race at all.
But on Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” Stewart brilliantly turns it around on Fox, and manages to touch on everything from the network’s denial of climate change to its constant coverage of the “War on Christmas” in the process.
“You were furious that America’s 11-month-long celebration of Christmas wasn’t enough,” Stewart said. “But now, if you can, just imagine that instead of having to suffer the indignity of a Festivus pole blocking something you could’ve just set up in your own yard anyway… imagine, that instead of that, on a pretty consistent basis, you can’t get a fucking cab even though you’re a neurosurgeon because you’re black.”
