Jon Stewart Ridicules Fox For Their Annual ‘War on Christmas’

15

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart opened his show this Tuesday evening by letting Fox "news" have it for their annual ritual known as the "war on Christmas." Stewart started out mocking them for their over the top fearmongering over a swimming class for Muslim girls, then Sarah Palin's miserable failure of a Christmasbook she's trying to peddle this year.

And of course, last but not least, Bill-O and his rantings about how the retail stores are somehow participating in this phony "war" of his as well. As Stewart reminded them at the end of the segment, if Palin and O'Reilly really believe that commercialization of the holiday is what's "spreading Christmas cheer," they may have a new nemesis who is waging the "war on Christmas" as well — Pope Francis.

  1. As much as I enjoyed this do we really need to ridicule Fox News? I think they do a pretty good job ridiculing themselves.

  2. stewart and those with shows like him offer nothing of value to society. they play both sides to the middle and that’s all the more reason my television is always tuned to my fav channel. OFF if more of us would ignore these people their shows would cease to exist. Quit giving these people a voice. that would be step one in shutting them down and until we do we will continue to get worthless articles such as this. Quality not quantity.

  3. At 4:15, the interviewer dumbs down the establishment clause for Palin in terms a 1st grader would understand and it still flies over her head.

  4. Gotta love Jon Stewart. Making fun of everyone who deserves it. It seems that Fox news the “martyr’ he continuously falls back on, you know cause they’re so easy to poke fun at. He never fails to provide me with my daily dose of laughter.

    Oh, contraire. Humor can bring home a valid point (for many) much more succinct than just dry facts. I hope I spelled everything korectly Sluzy :-)

    How can you have a period of eight minutes and sixty seconds?

    How else would you measure nine minutes?

    Gee Suzy, Have an agenda? Do you mind too much if the rest of us watch it? We actually disagree with you.

    I agree with you about TV. Mine’s not “off” though I don’t even own one. But you can still get the few decent shows via the Internet and Stewart is one of the few decent ones. As for playing “both sides against the middle” the idea that there are two reasonable sides in the US debate is just clearly wrong. There is one side that mostly represents corporate interests and then there is the side that is driven by insane lunatics who want to drop nuclear bombs on Iran (because there is a danger Iran might develop a nuclear bomb) and outlaw abortion and birth control and deny basic science such as climate change.

    Yes, we need to ridicule these perpetrators of ignorance over and over again for at least two reasons I can think of. Firstly, there are people out there who have never watched Fox and have no idea of how stupid and inflammatory and dishonest they are and secondly, there must be the occasional Fox viewer who sees Stewart and others cleverly ridicule this network which may ….. just may, set off a little bit of critical thinking within them and that has to be a good thing. The more people we have on “our” side the better.

  11. Jesus, Jon sounds like one of the multi-cultural permissiveness idiots in the first segment and you guys just let it slide??? What’s next, YMCA hosts FGM classes and you don’t say anything if it’s followed by something about Fox news? I used to watch the daily show but Stewart is beginning to grate on my nerves about a lot of things lately.
