"That's why you can appreciate the genius of Fox News," Stewart said. "They see this, they immediately know what it is and that it's enormously important."
After Fox showed a clip of Ronald Reagan looking strong and stately during the Cold War, Stewart was satisfied.
"That, my friends, is how it's done," he said. "That's how you take a few seconds of Obama video, turn it into a rich soup of decontextualized imagery designed to bypass the frontal cortex and go straight to the amygdala of old people, triggering cascades of dopamine and giving them all a giant Reagan boner. It's why they're No. 1."
