If there was ever a six minute video clip that could encapsulated what FOX has done to this country in the past 10+ years, this it it.

Update: John Amato:

Stewart: What Jon is the purpose of the documentary?

Oliver: Simply to judge the president before history gets it's chance.

FOX Host: From the beginning George W. Bush has been frequently ridiculed for his speaking style, now seven years later he's credited with some of the most eloquent and visionary speeches ever delivered by an American President.

Stewart: Who has credited him with that?

Oliver: That guy, just, just now, the guy on TV. You just saw him. You see, FOX News understands that a man's legacy is not defined not by what the man does, but by what people on television say he does about him.

There is no truer statement, "my friends." Then we get to see the treatment of Obama, Clinton and McCain through their warped eyes.

Oliver: In the years to come this fearless network will continue to say to America with confidence and absolute certainty. Go FOX yourself.
