Daily Show « Clantily Scad: Dyslexistentialist Commentary of the Culturally Incorrect Kind

Once again, Jon Stewart, without aiming for that particular end, defends his controversial title as the most the trusted name in news.

I’ve seen his stand-up and he’s not the funniest guy. (During the writer strike, I think Colbert outshined him on comedic wit.) But Stewart’s an expert on pointing out hypocrisy, and, because I can think of no other words, so very very right.

He then goes back to The Daily Show to accuse Fox of airing a heavily edited version:

And he later corrects his mistake that all of Fox News viewers are the most misinformed to most of Fox News viewers are the among the misinformed, with the exception of a couple shows. Politifact readers backlash to the “false” verdict.
