Jon Stewart rips Fox’s Selma coverage: The ‘white conservative victimization’ angle was ‘amazing’

Published

on

Coming out of the 50th anniversary of the “Bloody Sunday” march in Alabama, The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart had one question about the coverage.

“Could Fox take this commemoration of courageous civil rights marchers and somehow turn it into white conservative victimization?” he asked.

He was not disappointed, as the conservative network pushed an accusation that the New York Times cropped former President George W. Bush out of a picture of a commemorative march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma.

“You are amazing,” he gushed after a round of mock applause. “For me, it’s kind of readily apparent when you see the two photos side-by-side that the New York Times has a distinct bias against sh*tty pictures.”

While Fox was making a white person the focus of an event honoring the Civil Rights Movement, Stewart observed, CNN was droning on about its use of a drone over the bridge, constantly congratulating itself as if flying it was the real struggle.

“I have a drone — that a news channel would be judged not by the content of its content, but by the uselessness of its gizmos,” he said, adding, “I promise you, everyone would be fine with your CNN technology if you would just shut the f*ck up about it.”

However, Stewart did note one key difference between the two networks.

“CNN may have flying robot cameras, but Fox has drones,” he said.

MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews on Monday apologized to the Bernie Sanders campaign after comparing his dominance in the first three states of the 2020 presidential nomination to the fall of France to the Nazis in World War II.

Sanders senior advisor Chuck Rocha was asked on Fox News for response.

"Look, we all get hot and say things in the moment, I'm glad Chris apologized," Rocha said. "We got to move on and get past it, I'm glad he said what he had to say, I'm tired of folks on Twitter fighting with each other, it's time to win this election."

CNN's Phil Mudd

The White House and Republicans were supposed to be putting together a plan to protect Americans against Russia hacking yet another election, former CIA officer Phil Mudd pointed out on CNN Monday. Instead, they've failed Americans, opting instead for their own crusade to protect the president from anyone who disagrees with him.

"In a typical president, the National Security Council would say to the president, 'here are the options,' but they won't do that," said Mudd.

Retired Rear Adm. John Kirby agreed, saying that in wake of the president's acquittal from the Republican Senate, he feels empowered to do whatever he wants.
