ESTHER ZUCKERMAN    APR 25, 2013  The Atlantic Wire

On The Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart explained how, in the wake of the Boston bombing and at the beginning of the controversial prosecution of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Fox News went all willy nilly on the Constitution, at some points praising it and at others saying things that are, you know, blatantly unconstitutional. And Stewart peppered his entire opening segment with spot-on pop culture references. When one commentator goes off on how they “hate our freedom, they hate our way of live, they who we are, they hate our liberty,” Stewart adds: “It is like we are the Anne Hathaway of countries. You hate us, but only because you can’t get with this.”

Stewart later explained that Fox was mistaking Miranda rights for Beetlejuice, then mistook some famous terrorists for the Muppets, then compared torture to Tinkerbell, then finally said, “The freedom lovers at Fox are jettisoning amendments like Han Solo dumping cargo to to jump to light speed at the first sign of Imperial cruisers. Right, Chewie?”
