Jon Stewart: Mainstream Media Coverage of Occupy Wall Street Went From "Blackout" to "Circus"

Jon Stewart did an absolutely epic segment on Occupy Wall Street last night. He discussed the mainstream media's coverage of the protest, saying that the MSM "moved its coverage dial from 'blackout' to 'circus.' But those are the only two settings it has." He also touched on the hypocrisy of blaming the protesters for being "muddled and incoherent": no, media, "that's your f*cking job."

All that, a joke about masturbating to the Constitution, and a sob story about how protesters delayed a news man from eating his steak dinner, right here:
