Jon Stewart: Fox's "Outrage Repertoire Has Been So Overused As to Render Justified Outrage Meaningless"

How many Watergates can one president have? Well if you watch Fox News, you would probably believe that Obama has had a TON of them. As Jon Stewart pointed out on last night's Daily Show, Fox has declared at least four events during Obama's first term to be "worse than Watergate." How is that even possible? Stewart notes, "[Fox's] outrage repertoire has been so overused as to render justified outrage meaningless."

The latest target is of course Fast and Furious, which has given Stewart fresh material with which to rip into Fox. Watch last night's segment below.
