|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Queer and Loathing in D.C.|
I watch Fox Noise from time to time, because I’m curious and because it’s always a good idea to know what your opponents are saying. So on the day of the National Equality March (NEM), I surfed through to Fox to see what it was saying.
Surely, I thought, they’d be covering the NEM after making such a big deal of the “9/12” rally in DC, the one they attacked other networks for “ignoring”. Since they so self-righteously and pompously patted themselves on the back for covering the march, and since they’d declared they don’t “pick and choose these rallies and protests”, I was sure they’d cover the NEM.
Of course, they didn’t cover it. Obviously, Fox only considers the rightwing causes it promotes to be news. That’s kind of funny, actually: Fox wouldn’t know what news was, even if looked out the windows of its Washington, DC Bureau.
This Jon Stewart video captures exactly what I was thinking. (Sorry to Canadian readers—this apparently isn’t available in Canada).
