Jon Stewart Slams Fox News Over Coverage Of Herman Cain Sex Scandal
Jon Stewart has devoted plenty of time on The Daily Show over the years to poking fun at one of his favorite targets Fox News, effectively becoming the master of pointing out the cable news networks shortcomings and hypocricies in the process. Stewart was once again in top form on his program Monday night, accusing the network of helping GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain in his plight to blame the media over the allegations of sexual harassment and sexually inappropriate behavior that were recently brought to light against him.
As Stewart pointed out, there is ample evidence to support the sexual harassment claims that were first reported by Politico, including the fact that Cain himself admitted to a settlement, though he has repeatedly denied the charges against him. In essense, Stewart says, "the big get" of the Politico story is that it appears to be true.
Using that as a set-up, Stewart then takes on Fox News for ripping Politico for its use anonymous sources in the Cain report--despite the fact Fox News has also used anonymous sources for stories as well. Hello hypocrisy! According to Stewart, it appears the rule for using anonymous sources at Fox News is that "it's not ok to us an anonymous source...unless it's Rahm Emanuel."
Watch the segment below to see Megyn Kelly and the gang on Fox and Friends both rip Politico for using anonymous sources in the Cain report and then use unnamed sources--apparently tied to Emanuel--in their own stories.
