Jon Stewart's Fox News final week takedown

Posted on

Comedy Central

If there has been one theme for Jon Stewart’s time on The Daily Show, it’s his love-hate story with Fox News. And The Daily Show host, in his final week on the job, decided to kick off his farewell episodes with, presumably, one last takedown of the network.

On Monday’s episode, Stewart blasted Fox News for its coverage of the news that Stewart had twice met with President Barack Obama. While Stewart was just happy to hear they were still talking about him, he decided to make a case against Fox News’ claims by, naturally, using footage from Fox News.

Watch the clip below as Stewart points to the times Fox News has also pointed out that Obama has lost Stewart after certain Daily Show interviews and segments, and his gleeful, final dig to the network: “Adios, motherf——.”
