If there's one thing Jon Stewart does better than anyone, it's pointing out whenever Fox News acts hypocritical in its coverage or displays overtly selective outrage.
This time, Stewart picked up where his fellow "Daily Show" correspondent Lewis Black left off, taking on the outrage over Chaz Bono's gig on "Dancing With The Stars" vs. that of Nancy Grace's recent wardrobe malfunction on the same show.
When it was announced that Bono, who is transgendered, would be dancing on the reality show, Fox News contributor Dr. Keith Ablow told people not to let their kids watch it for fear that they, too would decide to change genders. Additional Fox News guests echoed the bigoted remarks, creating a backlash that has actually aided in starting a conversation about transgendered rights (much to their chagrin, we're sure).
So, wouldn't it make sense that the same conservative pundits who fear Chaz Bono would be equally fearful of their children watching "DWTS" after Grace's teet popped out? Unfortunately, the reaction was far less severe. Stewart was expecting something more like this:
Why is the angry lady from court TV trying to breast feed my children?!"
Instead, "Fox & Friends" Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade didn't seem to care at all, deciding pretty quickly to go back to mocking Bono's inner turmoil. Watch the clip above to hear Stewart's reaction.
