Jon Stewart To Fox News Attacking the Poor: How f*cking removed from reality are you?

β€œHow f*cking removed from reality is Fox’s perception of their own coverage on poverty? The main defender of your network’s attitude towards those in poverty is the main offender,” Stewart said β€œHe does segments that would make Ebenezer Scrooge go, β€˜Hey, take it easy, these are people we’re talking about.’” Jon Stewart said to Fox Business’ Stuart Varney when caught in a lie about insulting the poor.

Stewart played a montage of footage dating back to 2011 in which Varney uses phrases like β€œhandout nation” to describe the poor, or saying they lack a β€œrichness of spirit.” Most damningly, Varney openly says in a June 2013 clip, β€œI am being mean to poor people.”

After that, Stewart said, Varney’s claim earlier this week β€” that he and Fox News were only looking at social-service programs as a whole and not demonizing participants β€” was β€œa rich buffet of bullsh*t out of a three-course prickfest.”

β€œAre these glaring contradictions a product of lack of self-awareness, or cynicism, or stupidity, or evil?” Stewart asked. β€œI don’t know anymore, and I’m starting to lack a richness of f*cks.”
