Jon Stewart Rips ‘Spite-Driven Anger Machine’ Fox For Endless Scandal Mongering

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart once again gives the haters over at Faux "news" the treatment they deserve.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took a well deserved swipe at Fox "news" following Bill O'Reilly's interview with President Obama prior to the Super Bowl, which was just the latest example of their endless scandal mongering over the IRS, DOJ, NSA and Benghazi.

As Stewart noted, the talking heads over there can't even decide which of their so-called scandals is supposed to be distracting from the other fake scandals. It doesn't matter though. Stewart summed up what Fox does right out of the box after showing President Obama calling out Bill-O for their scandal mongering this Sunday:

STEWART: That is quite an accusation... that Fox News unfairly promotes and in some cases creates scandals, for the sole purpose of undermining this president. Although, in Obama's defense, this is true. That is exactly what Fox does every day, with the exception of the one hour every two weeks, where John Stossel exposes how homeless people are scamming the system.

Naturally, the wingnuts over at Faux "news" didn't respond well. Bravo again to Jon Stewart for giving the haters over at the "spite-driven anger machine" the treatment they deserve.
