Nothing is more entertaining than watching Jon Stewart go to town on Fox News. He was at it again Wednesday night, this time ripping the network for its reaction to two Muslim-related stories.
First up was their take on Obama's "innocuous" use of NASA for diplomatic relations with the Muslim world. Showing clip after clip of Fox News hosts and pundits criticizing, and even mocking, the PR plan, Stewart noted their hypocrisy when he asked, "What kind of Presidential asshole would use the space program to build a bridge to peace?" Of course, he answered his own question, cutting to a clip of "liberal fart-bag" Ronald Reagan discussing the use of technology to help end the Cold War.
The highlight of the bit may have been Stewart's reaction to "Fox & Friends" host Steve Doocy saying "it's a space place." On a side note, we're beginning to get the sense that "Fox & Friends" may be the most unintentionally funny show on TV. (Sorry, "Real Housewives of Everywhere," they've got you beat.)
Next up: Fox's reaction to the growing number of Mosques being built throughout the nation, which many of their personalities feared would spread Islam, and consequently influence the laws of the nation. To be fair, Stewart mocked ABC News as well for their take on the situation as well. But both were asking for it.
