Last night after he trampled all over Wolf Blitzer and Secretary Kerry (say it three times fast), Jon Stewart turned his ire on his favorite target, Fox News. And it was glorious. It’s as if Stewart had been bottling this in all summer during his absence. I know what you’re trying to do, Jon Stewart, you’re trying to make me forget my love for John Oliver. But I am not that fickle. Still this epic rant was everything we love about Stewart. He didn’t stop for red lights, hell he didn’t stop for breath. He basically went full MicroMachines Man on us. The whole segment is glorious, but the Fox-related antics start at 6:50.
And if you can’t watch the video at work, here’s the text:
If we caught Charlie Manson, who gives a sh*t who gets the collar? And I get that Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence.
