Jon Stewart to Fox Hosts: ‘Your F*cking Opinion Is Not as Valid as Scientific Fact’

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart noted that non-stop news coverage of the recent cold snap meant less political bickering in the media. After all, they're just talking about the weather. But not at Fox News, where conservative hosts and guests revisted the absurd right-wing cliche that cold weather on any given day disproves global warming. 


"Looks to me like we're looking at global cooling," says Fox's Stuart Varney. "Forget this global warming. That's just my opinion."

Watch Stewart react to Varney and the rest below, around the 4:00 minute mark.
