You know how Fox News yells “class warfare” the moment someone talks about income disparity? Apparently, it’s OK to complain about someone else’s wealth when it’s Jon Stewart earning the big bucks. Fox & Friends, along with the Daily Caller’s Jamie Weinstein, thought it was big proof of Stewart’s hypocrisy to sneer about Stewart’s earnings and the news that he’s supposedly “on track” to being worth more than Mitt Romney. Of course, they missed Stewart’s main point, which is not that Romney is rich, per se, but that his favor-the-wealthy policies are self-serving while Stewart supports ones that are not.
Apparently, the curvy couch crew thinks that if Stewart doesn’t distribute his income more, he’s a hypocrite. But by that token, shouldn’t someone like, say, Brian Kilmeade have joined the military and fought in the wars he cheerleads?

All he’s shown us is that he doesn’t watch TDS, he just reads smear articles about them on Newsbusters, a site that’s infamous for:
A) Thinking the Daily Show is a real news show, not a spoof.
B) Not realizing that they take their A-Game jokes out there. If it doesn’t make the cut, it’s options are “later” or “never.” The end.
Also, my guess is that there’s a bit more to this than meets the eye with regards to their going after Stewart. Let’s not forget that Daily Caller guy works for widdle Tucker Carlson who got his bow-tied ass handed to him by Stewart a few years ago. It was a monumental embarrassment for Carlson and most likely played a part into why Carlson now running a website instead of hosting a teevee show. Still stings, eh, Tucker?
Btw, Stewart is actually working and putting in the hours. What does Romney atually do to earn $57K a day? Perhaps they pay him that for running for President (again)? Oh wait, didn’t Romney claim to the folks that he was actually unemployed? Unemployed but getting $57K a day? Bwaaah!
One thing that I found rather peculiar is that the Stewart video they played was originally aired way back on Jan. 24, 2012. Yet they bring it up now just as Stewart is taking a 2 week vacation and can’t take them on until July 16th when he’s back? What a bunch of lame-ass cowards they’ve got over there at FOX (and the Daily Caller). LOL!
there is no way Fox wins this debate.
Once again Fox is making a big mistake picking another fight with a brilliant comedian like Jon Stewart. You would think by now theyâve learned not to touch that hot stove anymore, since every time they have done so in the past theyâve gotten burned, badly.
Before Stewart explains exactly what’s wrong with that logic, let’s take a shot at it.
(reviews first paragraph)… nope, if that doesn’t expain itself, there’s no hope for you.
