Jon Stewart’s reign as Daily Show host is coming to an end -- his final show is this Thursday -- and it’s time for him to start saying his goodbyes. First up: Fox News. So Stewart bid adieu the only way he knew how: With a brutal takedown of everything that Fox News stands for.
This isn’t the first time Stewart has taken on the quote Fair and Balanced unquote network, but this time was different. This time was personal.
The segment followed a Fox News media critic, Howard Kurtz, and guest, another critic, labeling Stewart a “propagandist” who is pushing President Obama’s “ideological agenda.”
Stewart then provides video evidence to disprove any “suckupitude” towards Obama, while simultaneously proving Fox News is guilty of everything -- and more! -- they accuse him of doing.
“Your hypocrisy isn’t a bug in the Fox model, it’s the feature,” he concludes. “Your job is to discredit any source of criticism that might hurt the conservative brand, by angrily holding them to standards you yourselves jettisoned in your news network’s mission statement.”
As for Obama and Stewart’s “bromance,” the president did seem as bummed as everyone else that Stewart is leaving his post. "I can't believe that you're leaving before me!" Obama said during his last visit. "In fact, I'm issuing a new executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show!"
