Jon Stewart Slams Fox's Economic Coverage: "Fox News: Rooting For America To Fail Since November 2008"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

On the February 28 edition of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, Jon Stewart discussed signs the economy is improving, saying, "[I]t's good news -- unless you work for a media organization whose job it is to make sure Obama doesn't get re-elected." He then mocked Fox News figures for appearing to use a Republican National Committee "pundit prep document" with talking points on the economy. At one point, Stewart noted that Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy admitted he was reading from the "pundit prep document" before going on to use one of its talking points.
