Jon Stewart on Fox Coverage of Romney "47%" Video: "Chaos on Bullsh*t Mountain"

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart touched on one of the big stories, if not thebig story, of the week: the secret Romney fundraiser "47%" video. As Stewart noted after playing a clip, "That's the Republican candidate for the presidency, seemingly characterizing a broad swath of Americans -- which would include veterans, the elderly, the working poor, and much of the middle class -- as a bunch of lazy freeloaders. It touched off a firestorm everywhere, but nowhere more acutely than at Romney campaign headquarters [Fox News], where it triggered something I like to call Chaos on Bullshit Mountain."

Stewart goes on to discuss the "turd containment crews, working overtime" at Fox News to spin the story into anything other than what it is: a disaster for the Romney campaign.
