The Daily Show finally has some video to show from FOX News, who finally decided to comment on Rupertgate. As you'd expect, they defended Poppa Murdoch instead of being outraged by the phone hacking.

You gotta love suck-up Stuart Varney's bow down to Rupert when he dared to mention the hacking scandal at the end of the video.

Varney: The story that is really buzzing all around the country and certainly here in NY is that the News of The World. a News Corporation newspaper paper in Britain.

Rupert: I'm not talking about that issue today at all, sorry.

Varney: OK, no worries Mr. Chairman, that's fine with me.
