Jon Stewart Rips Fox News' Ayers Coverage

Jon Stewart highlighted Fox News' coverage from the past few days in politics on his show Thursday night, showing everything the network chose to cover rather than focusing on the economy, which correlates to voters leaning towards Barack Obama.

"I'm guessing you guys don't want to talk about the economy," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said to Gretchen Carlson on "Fox & Friends."

"Here's what Fox has been talking about just since Tuesday's debate," Stewart said, before showing clips of the following:

  • Megyn Kelly discussing voter fraud
  • Sean Hannity mentioning William Ayers
  • Megyn Kelly, Brian Kilmeade, and Steve Doocy discussing Newsweek's liberal bias
  • Sean Hannity mentioning Reverend Jeremiah Wright
  • Megyn Kelly referencing Obama's "deep secret ties" to the Kenyan government
  • "Fox & Friends" introducing country star Aaron Tippin's "Drill Here, Drill Now!"
  • and a collection of Bill Ayers clips, punctuated by Frank Luntz downplaying the results of a post-debate focus group that suggested Obama won the debate.
