Jon Stewart left for vacation a few weeks ago and the entire world changed in his absence. He came back to “The Daily Show” last night and lambasted Fox News for the way that they have chosen to cover the Mike Brown story and the Ferguson, Missouri protests.
Take a look below!
There are some people who explain racial tensions in the US in such a confusing way that those who really need to get the message don’t. But when you put it the way Stewart did…the message isn’t hard to get at all. In fact, it’s pitch perfect! Let’s hope those who didn’t seem to understand it before do now!
Good Job Mr. Stewart!
