Jon Stewart versus Fox News (again)

We met a woman on vacation a year or so ago who seemed quite reasonable (especially since she was from Manhattan) until one day she said the only people who know the truth about Benghazi are the ones who watch Fox News.

Ah yes, Benghazi. If you only watch Fox News, your outrage might have been getting a little jaded now that health care seems like it might be a good thing after all, but never fear, John Boehner’s back to pump it up again.

Watch the whole thing. If I run across that woman from New York again, I’ll tell her that the only people who know the truth are the ones who watch the Daily Show.
