On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart slammed Fox News over it’s double standard for demanding accountability on Ferguson while refusing to accept accountability for misleading America for years over Benghazi.
“Wouldn’t it be nice if people who jumped to conclusions and peddled a false, divisive, anger-stoking narrative had to apologize for misleading America?” Stewart asked.
“Yes, the network who used the word Benghazi like a clubhouse password,” he continued, “the official Republican-dominated House report on Benghazi was the only news story in two years that didn’t remind them to talk about Benghazi!”
“For years, they used Benghazi as shorthand, as a symbol for the whole concept of a corrupt, lying, tyrannical, possibly murderous Obama White House, kind of like how other people used ‘hands up don’t shoot’ as a symbol for systemic racism,” Stewart concluded.
“And there’s really only one difference between the two phenomena: Systemic racism actually exists.”
