Jon Stewart: Fox News No Longer Feels The Need To Report The Facts

Earlier this week, President Obama signed a nuclear arms agreement with Russian President Medvedev, which as is expected in today’s day of opinion journalism, has been interpreted in a number of interesting ways. “We’re at the point now that the by far number one ranked news network in this country, no longer feels the need to report what a policy document says in black and white.”

The crux of Stewart’s argument centers around Fox News analyst Newt Gingrich and host Sean Hannity discussing the arms agreement in what appears to be in direct conflict with the facts of the treaty (as presented by Stewart.) As Barack Obama has said before, “You are entitled to your opinion, but not your own facts.” Stewart later bolstered his argument by pointing out that Obama’s policy is remarkably similar to that proposed by conservative hero Ronald Reagan, though to be fair, we are in a very different time.
