Jon Stewart Skewers Fox News on Tasteless Segment

Posted on Mar 29, 2006
Jon Stewart Fox News

Stewart commented: “If your eyes were closed during that segment, you heard a scary story about a serial killer in Florida. If your eyes were open during that segment—uh, you might have gotten an erection.”

When Fox News decided to juxtapose busty bikini babes and news of a serial killer manhunt on the same screen, the savior from Comedy Central made wonderful mincemeat of the situation.

Crooks and Liars:

Jon Stewart takes a look at a segment on FOX. The humor comes between the subject matter and the video footage that they show while the people are speaking.

(Warning: The video does get a little steamy for FOX viewers.)
