Jon Stewart: How Did Fox Already Turn Bergdahl into a ‘Muslim Terrorist’?

Jon Stewart took on Fox News tonight and how quickly they turned American POW Bowe Bergdahl into a “Muslim terrorist Kennedy assassin” with a whirlwind of criticisms and conclusion-jumping before waiting for all the facts to come in.

And it’s not just Bergdahl, it’s also his dad, and all the weird opining about how Muslim-y he looks because of the beard. Stewart got so frustrated listening to everyone on Fox talk that at one point, his conscience made a surprise appearance and suggested he calm his “anger fetish.”

And, of course, there have been plenty of pundits and politicians saying how they would have done it differently, so Jason Jones and Jessica Williams upped the ante with some of the most Hollywood-esque rescue scenarios they could possibly think of. (There was pants-ripping involved.)
