Comic Relief: Jon Stewart Takes Down Fox News’ Take on Ferguson

By Carla Murphy Aug 27, 2014

Watch Jon Stewart take down a number of Fox News talking points that are popular among people of color on the left and right, too. Stay tuned until the end when Stewart, who’s just returned from vacation asks, "Do you not understand that life in this country is inherently different for white people and black people?" The question gets at the difference, well-noted these past few weeks, in how white and black Americans react to Ferguson. Stewart answers with a tale of two of his employees sent out on an assignment. One is black, the other white. Not much to say: many people know how this story goes.
