JON STEWART PUTS MEDIA ON BLAST (HIS WAY)
JON STEWART MOCKS MEDIA FOR PEDDLING INSANE OBAMA RUMORS
On Monday night's "Daily Show", Jon Stewart mocked the media's willingness to peddle insane rumors about Barack Obama - and their tendency to blame the rumor-mongering on internet sites. Calling it "Baracknophobia", Stewart showed clips of anchor and pundits from all three cable networks repeating baseless rumors (Muslim, plagiarist, sexist, etc.) about Barack Obama (and his wife Michelle).
The highlight of clips comes about 2:25 in, when Stewart says, "Oh, this is interseting. SomeguyI'veneverheardof.com is reporting presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama has lady parts. Obviously scurrilous and unfounded, we'll examine it tonight in our special, 'BARACK OBAMA'S VAGINA: THE OCTOBER SURPRISE IN HIS PANTS.'"
