Stewart And Colbert Return! Take On Media For Sotomayor Coverage (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert returned to television last night after a week off--a week in which the President nominated Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. Stewart took on cable news networks (and Republicans in general) for focusing solely on her race and misrepresenting her background as foreign when the judge was born in the United States.

Stewart then looked into her history, growing up in the projects with a single mother trying to avoid drug dealers, and begged the question: "Is that her life story did Oprah create her in a focus group?"

Colbert, on the other hand, was incredibly angry at the president for stripping young white men of the dream to be a supreme court justice. He called the nominee a racist and backed that assertion up by showing clips of conservative talking heads.
