By now you’ve likely already seen and/or heard about Karl Rove’s mini meltdown on Fox News on Election night, after Ohio was called for the President, assuring him of re-election. You’ve probably also seen Bill O’Reilly’s racially-charged and divisive reasoning for Obama’s reelection: “The white establishment is now the minority. It’s not a traditional America anymore, and there are 50 percent of the voting public who want stuff. Who is going to given them things? President Obama. People feel that they are entitled to things.”
Jon Stewart held back most of the night with his post-election coverage, preferring punchlines to outrage, but in the final seconds of this segment, Stewart took appropriate umbrage to Bill O’Reilly’s comments.
“What an incredible story to tell yourselves. We would’ve won if it weren’t for the moral failings of the non-real America. Fox lost because last night, minorities — who feel entitled to things — came and took the country away from the self-sufficient white Medicare retirees and upper-class tax avoidance experts. Or as they’re also known: ‘Your Audience.’”
