Jon Stewart Loves How Epic HuffPost Headlines Win The Internet

Posted: Updated:

Right in the middle of a segment Thursday night about the indictment against Texas Gov. Rick Perry for abuse of power, "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart had a few words to say about The Huffington Post.

With news commentators noting that even some on the left believe the indictment is weak, Stewart wondered where the "Uber-Liberal Sideboob Gazette" stands on the issue.

And that's when his screen switched to an image of the HuffPost with Rick Perry's mug shot and the headline:

RICK PERRY'S EPIC MUG SHOT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT WINNING THE INTERNET

"That doesn't even make sense," Stewart said. "And yet I want to click on it."

(For the record, that was not an actual HuffPost headline... but if you'd like to send in a resume, Jon, we'd be happy to consider it.)

Watch the full clip above to see how Stewart's take on the Perry indictment WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT SIDEBOOB.
