Jon Stewart Calls Out Fox News For Overhyping Super Bowl 'Velveeta Shortage'

How can anyone get excited about the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII when there is a major food shortage plaguing the country, Jon Stewart wondered on Monday night.

Stewart was referencing rumors of a "Velveeta cheese shortage" being played up by the media. Stewart called out Fox News in particular for its overhyping of the shortage. The network has reported that the lack of Velveeta cheese is "raising big concerns" while another anchor said that "cheese lovers everywhere will be watching NFL playoffs with just plain cheese."

"NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!" Stewart yelled.

"This year the matchup is between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos," Stewart added. "Two teams hailing from states that have both legalized marijuana, which makes this year's shortage all the more tragic."

Stewart then made fun of one Fox News segment where the anchor actually went into a supermarket to track down Velveeta. Surprisingly, he had very little trouble getting his hands on the processed cheese.

"Something about this Velveeta shortage feels a little -- what's the word I'm looking for -- bullsh*t," Stewart said.
