Stelter says that in 2010, Stewart has devoted 24 segments to FNC, compared to five segments on CNN. He writes:
Combining the earnestness of a journalism professor and the sarcasm of a satirist, Mr. Stewart routinely charges that Fox’s news anchors and commentators distort Mr. Obama’s policies and advance a conservative agenda…It is true that the often-left-leaning “Daily Show” deals with a wide array of topics, but Fox is one that Mr. Stewart is overtly passionate about…
Both The Daily Show and FNC declined to comment for the story.
