The Daily Show's Jon Stewart let the Media Research Center's Brent Bozell and his buddies at Fox have it for their fearmongering over people signing up to get health insurance.
April 8, 2014

After poking fun at the Obama administration for making light of how hard they worked to meet their goal of 7 million enrolled on the health care exchanges, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart let the Media Research Center's Brent Bozell and his cohorts over at Fox have it for their attacks on Univision for heaven forbid, helping their viewers with getting signed up for health insurance and for their fearmongering coverage of the health care law.

Stewart also let them have it for simultaneously pandering to their Latino audience while trying to scare the hell out of their white audience with different "slants" on the very same stories, and their hope that the two groups never find out about each other. Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal suggested that they won't have a problem as long as they "build the dang fence" between the tabs on Fox News Latino and Fox Nation.

And as is the case with most right wing web sites, they really don't want their Latino viewers reading the comments section over at Fox Nation, because it's a cesspool like the lot of them.
