Nobody’s better than Jon Stewart at honing in on exactly what is wrong with Fox News. In this clip from his “Rumble in Air-Conditioned Auditorium” pay-per-view match up with Bill O’Reilly, Stewart gets it right again. “On Bullshit Mountain (i.e. Fox News), our problems are amplified and our solutions simplified and that’s why they won’t work.”
In the clip below, from our friends at Video Café at Crooks and Liars, Stewart addresses O’Reilly, the Mayor of Bullshit Mountain, albeit not a “year-round” resident:
Until we can agree on a reality that exists in this country, you and those denizens believe that we face a cataclysm, a societal cataclysm between freedom and socialism. And on Bullshit Mountain, our problems are amplified and our solutions simplified and that’s why they won’t work. We face a debt crisis that we’ve never faced before. We are merely weeks from being a failed state or even worse, Greece. And the way to solve it? Is to kill Big Bird. Now let me say this. That is not a solution!
In case you’re wondering, I did not watch The Rumble. Although I applaud its reasonable price of $4.95, and I would have paid twice that amount to see this face off, it just bugged the heck out of me that these two millionaires only donated only “half of the net profits” to charity. Come on, guys!
