Jon Stewart: Fox STFU With How Victimized You Are

Jon Stewart took the talking heads at Fox to task for their defense of Rush Limbaugh and his sexist attacks on Sandra Fluke and the false equivalencies when comparing Limbaugh to Bill Maher and other comedians and the fact that they tried to play off Rush Limbaugh being a comedian with their defense of him.

Stewart had it exactly right with his finish here after he showed some of Sean Hannity's hypocrisy with his love of Ted Nugent:

STEWART: Ted Nugent didn't get boycotted. That was the Dixie Chicks for saying on stage they were ashamed President Bush was from Texas. But that makes sense. The Nug was actually sentenced for his diatribe, to having to jam "Catch Scratch Fever" with Huck.

And by the way, I'm not saying speech should be policed and censored and boycotted or that people don't have a right to say crazy things, or to boycott them. I don't believe that's true. I think speech should be much freer.

But here's the one thing I do believe. Fox... shut the f**k up about how victimized you, and you alone are. Nobody cares!
