If there is one thing that is undeniable about the the editors at Fox News, it’s that they are devoted to maintaining narratives that unleash persistent and blistering attacks on liberals and Democrats. It is their whole reason for living and their greatest source of joy. However, every now and then there is an event or a person that gums up the works and causes them to stutter furiously as they try to figure out what their opinion is.
Jon Stewart of the Daily Show is such a person. Under ordinary circumstance, Fox resides happily in their characterization of Stewart as an unrepentant, socialist, disciple of Joseph Goebbels. Bill O’Reilly has called him “a key component of left-wing television.” Last Week Eric Bolling introduced a segment saying “Jon Stewart and his team of liberal writers deliver this piece of shi…satire the other night.” Over at Fox Nation’s Lie-Fest they posted a ludicrous report about an Obama donor funding a movie he is set to direct (In fact, the producer also donated to Romney).
Now Fox is giddily heralding the recent episodes of The Daily Show where Stewart has been criticizing President Obama for the the variety of pseudo-scandals that the right is currently peddling. Fox couldn’t be more tickled by what they now consider to be insightful satire, but which they usually regard as unfunny carping. The thing about this is, Fox is oblivious to the reality that Stewart frequently mocks Obama and other Democrats. And what makes Fox’s ignorance of this fact all the more peculiar is that they themselves report every slap that Stewart takes at the left. For instance, these are just from this year alone, starting with today’s posting:

Remember this whenever you hear some jerkwad on Fox railing about what a commie subversive Stewart is. And by jerkwad we can include Roger Ailes the CEO of Fox News who said about Stewart…
“He hates conservative views. He hates conservative thoughts. He hates conservative verbiage. He hates conservatives. He’s crazy. […] He makes a living by attacking conservatives and stirring up a liberal base against it.”
Yeah, that’s why Stewart did all those critical bits aimed at liberals. Does Ailes watch his own network?

The headline writer must be slipping. I found the verb “annihilates” nowhere in that comprehensive list.
I don’t get it; Stewart is an even handed news reporter. His coverage of the recent scandals surrounding Pres. Obama show just how even handed he is.
He can’t help it if the truth has a liberal bias and conservatives, especially the Tealiban, give him so much more to work with.
What Stewart can’t help is that he is a liberal with a liberal bias. even when he’s dissing the President, he’s still mocking conservatives.
There’s plenty to work with if he wanted to mock liberals, but that’s not his gig. Any mock of liberals is very, very temporary.
A little self deprecation goes a long way. It even gave Mark an opportunity to find something else to write about how biased and hypocritical FOX News is.
The best part about all of this is how Faux News constantly decries how the liberal media is in the pocket of the president. Now, all of a sudden, they show clips of The Daily Show as a legitimate source of nes, which they have been trying to discredit for years. As if that wasn’t good enough, the whole Benghazi scandal is, in fact, a scandal. It’s a scandal involving Republicans intentionally altering emails and feeding them to ABC News. So yes, the “liberal media” is in fact being fed news by Republicans. Chew on that, Faux and Friends!
