‘The Daily Show’: Stewart Sticks It to the Speedy CNN and Fox
Posted on Jun 29, 2012
When the Supreme Court’s landmark health care decision came down on Thursday, CNN and Fox News raced to be first in reporting the ruling. They were first, all right: the first major news networks to incorrectly report that the mandate had been struck down.
Needless to say, Jon Stewart, who loves to point out the falsehoods, incongruities and plain ridiculousness that plague cable news channels, had a field day with the “widely different” accounts they broadcast.
“Yes, widely different,” the host of “The Daily Show” said. “There’s what you’ve been saying, and then there’s what happened.”
