Jon Stewart Is Fed Up With Media 'Overhyping' News (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart is sick and tired of living in a "perpetual state of fear" brought on by the media.

The "Daily Show" host went after the media on Monday night for what he said is their tendency to exaggerate-- turning little things into big news stories.

From the "Knockout game," to "car surfing" to "teen biting" to selfies, everything is reported as "dangerous" these days-- and Stewart said he has had enough.

"Could the news media be over-hyping the danger?" he joked. "They've never done that before...well, there was that all the time."

Watch the video to see Stewart's compilation of overhyped news stories, featuring "Innocent Fun Or Sexual Harassment: Young Students Slapping the Backsides Of Others."
