Eric Bolling complained about Jon Stewart “mocking all of us at Fox News for shedding light on food stamp abuse.” Actually, Eric, Stewart mocked all of you for NOT shedding light on food stamp abuse. What Stewart did is highlight – in a devastating-to-Fox fashion - how the network feigns reporting to make propagandistic attacks on poor people. But rather than defend Fox coverage with, say, facts about that supposed food stamp abuse, Bolling repeated his evidence-free accusation. And then invited Stewart to come on the show.
One of Stewart’s many brilliant takedowns in his comic critique was by describing Fox food stamp reporting as: "We read the chain emails your Grandma gets in her inbox out loud like they were true."
And, as if to prove Stewart’s point, Bolling announced, during the segment below from yesterday’s Cashin’ In:
Let me school you, Mr. Stewart. Food stamps aren’t just being used for food. A lot of clowns are withdrawing cash from their EBT cards and then spending it on other things like booze, weed and lap dances. By the way, Jon, you’re welcome to come on the show any time to debate it, Dummy.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for Stewart to show up and give you some younger demo cred, Eric! But maybe, in the meanwhile, you could offer some actual statistics to back up your attacks on food stamp “clowns.”

And this doesn’t even include those bi Wall Street banks.
I don’t suppose Bolling would have the guts to invite me on for a “debate?”
Now, Ellen. Really. When did right-wingers ever need to offer “actual statistics” to back up anything they’ve ever said or done? Remember all the GOP legislatures insisting they had to force voters to show IDs to “end voter fraud?” Despite the fact that there really hasn’t been enough hard evidence of voter ID to warrant all this legislation.
