Talk about looking for excuse to pile on! Fox News Channel found one and did, and Jon Stewart was there to skewer them.
On last night’s The Daily Show Stewart used the coverage of a recent contretemps involving NASA (full disclosure: I work for a NASA contractor) to ridicule Fox’s anti-anything-Obama attitude and its religious intolerance.
Yeah, yeah, I know, “We report, you decide,” and the news shows versus the opinion shows, but still…(and don’t bail out before he cracks America’s News Mommy, too.)
I once thought Fox just hoped the rest of us weren’t paying attention, but now I realize they don’t care about that. They have faith, my friends—faith that eventually, each of us loyal, God-fearing, right-thinking Americans will come around and agree with them, and the lack of fairness and balance won’t matter. In the meantime, cha-ching!
(All in all, sort of the same attitude that ESPN has, as demonstrated by having finally put their last shard of editorial integrity into a blind trust.)
