“While President Palin continues her whistle stop tour of ‘real’ America eventual ex-President Barack Obama continues to defy his lack of a mandate by actually doing things.” Really, is anyone benefiting more from the Palin/Tea Party rise to ‘nutty’ prominence more than Jon Stewart? Remember when everyone worried that Obama’s election would result in the dismal end of The Daily Show? Ha. But I digress.
Turns out the big question Stewart came away with after watching coverage of Obama’s nuclear summit, which as he points out was convened to whip up international support for sanctions against Iran, was why Fox News was trying to compare the summit logo with the flags of Middle Eastern countries. Stewart’s conclusion: “You be the judge! We’re [Fox} just letting you know about some bullsh*t thing that we saw saying that this was a coded message to the Muslim world. We’re just curious citizens wondering if we put that logo up with four Muslim flags whether you’ll have a visceral reaction and that our president is perhaps Muslim, while clearly stating our conclusion on our lower third graphic.”
Meanwhile Stewart actually called the White House (“hit 9, you get an outside line) to find out what the logo was modeled after. Not Muslim flags. Then he applied similar investigatory techniques and concluded the Fox News logo was modeled after an old Nazi propaganda poster…does this mean they are secretly support a German re-annexation of Poland? Or is it modeled after the rising sun standard of Imperial Japan? You decide! Video below.
