Last week, Jon Stewart went to town on Fox News, pointing out the hypocrisy in their coverage and summing it up with a grand "Go F--k Yourselves." It was fantastic. Understandably, Fox News responded to the bit, as Bernie Goldberg fired back, criticizing Stewart for the piece. But you'd think that the network would learn by now -- that's just asking for it.
So what'd Stewart have in store for Goldberg? First, some great lines as he broke down Goldberg's arguments:
"I know that I criticize you and Fox News a lot, but only because you're truly a terrible, cynical, disingenuous news organization."
Responding to Goldberg's claim that he "clearly wanted to be a social commentator, more than just a comedian":
"Comedians do social commentary through comedy. That's how it's worked for thousands of years. I have not moved out of the comedian's box into the news box. The news box is moving towards me."
Proving his point, Stewart enlisted the help of a gospel choir and brought the house down with a rendition of his classic song, "Go F--k Yourselves." Then, for a little icing on the cake, he called the network "The Lupus Of News."
