For those of you who missed it, another brilliant Daily Show takedown of Fox and Friends:
Anyway this show is regularly the butt of Jon Stewart’s jokes and from what I’ve seen on the Daily Show, this program look like a right wing, dumbed-down (if that’s even possible) version of every Today Show knockoff on morning TV.
Last night Jon featured a clip of them talking about some shady Saudi financier giving money to the Ground Zero mosque. But, what they failed to mention, as Jon pointed out, was said financier’s name, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, who owns seven percent of Fox News. Later on he had a bit with John Oliver and Wyatt Cenac arguing whether this was deliberate or just sheer stupidity and they showed clips of one of the hosts saying she had to Google the meaning of the word ignoramus, among other things.
Seeing as I how don’t watch TV in the morning, though, I’m curious. Is Fox and Friends really as dumb as the Daily Show makes it out to be.
