Jon Stewart invaded the O’Reilly Factor last night and schooled, no… PWND, Billo. The topic du jour was whether or not Obama should have invited the rapper Common to White House Poetry Night.
Stewart points out that Bono, Springsteen and Dylan are also guilty of the “crime” Fox News has accused Common of committing. Stewart continues, "Why are you drawing the line at Common? There is a selective outrage machine here at Fox that pettifogs only when it suits the narrative that suits them.”
The answer to Stewart’s question comes easily to those with active thinking parts. The other performers don’t fit Fox’s narrative. They’re not potentially angry, dangerous black men. They don’t trigger the fear response in Fox viewers that translates to ratings and political influence.
‘Nuff said, this is brilliant… a must see.
