The Daily Show's Jon Stewart once again let the media have it for their coverage of the events unfolding with Syria on everything from Wolf Blitzer's ridiculous interview with President Obama, to Fox and their knee-jerk opposition to anything and everything President Obama does even if it ought to be good news for the country.
The Obama administration wasn't spared during this segment either, with Stewart comparing Kerry's press conference where he may have accidentally bungled his way into giving the United States an out to military conflict with Syria, comparing him to Mr. Magoo, but that criticism was no match for the well deserved rant that ClusterFox received here.
I watched a little bit of some of the pundits on Fox whining about this earlier in the day, and they're really not happy about the fact that they're not going to have their war porn to cover and as Stewart noted, the other networks aren't much better. They want those ratings. Here's to hoping cooler heads prevail and the administration continues to disappoint them.
Here's more from Raw Story on Stewart's rant at Fox: Jon Stewart destroys Fox News’ ‘parasitic, succubus-like existence’ in hyper-speed rant:
After playing a quick-cut montage of Fox News personalities, Jon Stewart delivered his own lightning-quick rebuttal to their complaint that the U.S. had shown “weakness” by going along with Russia’s proposal to have Syria surrender its chemical weapons.
“If we caught Charlie Manson, who gives a sh*t who gets the collar?” Stewart asked. “And I get that Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its motus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence.”
