Jon Stewart's Perfect Response to Fox News' Ferguson Coverage
On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart skewered Fox News' predictably offensive coverage of Ferguson.
"Ferguson, Missouri is not Selma, Alabama," a Fox News talking head bizarrely insists.
Stewart counters, "If Fox had been around for Selma, Alabama, the headline probably would have been, "Relax, Selma isn't slavery."
But Fox doesn't stop at merely undermining the importance of Ferguson. They also have to denigrate the protestors and anyone else fighting for racial justice. Rudy Giuliani, ever ready with the nasty, ignorant put down, blames "racial arsonists" for inciting the protests. Other Fox news pundits outdo even Giuliani, blaming "racial racketeers" and "race hustlers."
But the Fox News pundit who really gets at what instigated the Ferguson protests is esteemed Professor Sean Hannity. Watch Hannity's absurd, offensive Ferguson "analysis" and Stewart's perfect response below, courtesy of Comedy Central.
