Jon Stewart vs. ‘the most consistently misinformed media viewers’
Have I mentioned lately how much I love Jon Stewart?
Chris Wallace rejected the premise, arguing that Fox News viewers “aren’t the least bit disappointed” with what their preferred network does. Stewart’s response was an important one.
“In polls,” Stewart said, in a surprisingly angry tone, “who are the most consistently misinformed media viewers? The most consistently misinformed? Fox. Fox viewers. Consistently. Every poll.”
Wallace then changed the subject.
God knows the “consistently misinformed” part is especially true here in S.G., where Birtherism still runs rampant, “Obamacare” is still maligned because of those death panels we’ll all be facing once we join AARP, Creationism is still championed because Evolution is just a “theory,” after all (double your stupid, double your fun!) — and one leading light in the community recently petitioned the school board to teach Sarah Palin’s version of Paul Revere’s ride.
Get me out of here!!
