In this Daily Show commentary on the sexualization of female news reporters, John Stewart begins by saying soberly, "How the news is presented, packaged if you will, is also an important part of the sales pitch. Yes, attractiveness matters."

Samantha Bee interrupts him to insist, "This isn't gussied-up or attractive news we're seeing. This is 'News I'd Like to Fuck.'" She then presents an increasing crescendo of clips showing TV reporters with seductive overtones.

Bee's report climaxes after she refers to Fox News as "the Hustler of news networks."
