Jon Stewart Traces Fox News' Evolution On Gay Marriage


"Come on, Fox," Stewart said. "It's same-sex marriage, the most divisive cultural issue of our time, remember?" So how did we get here? Conservative commentators on Fox once claimed that same-sex marriage would lead to marriages with multiple spouses and even turtles! The tone on Fox today is a little different, Stewart explained.

"This is the true measure of how far we've come as a nation," Stewart said. "In, like, five years, the prime talking point from Republicans about people who support gay marriage has gone from 'it will destroy society via turtle fucking' to, 'oh, of course you're for it, you'll say anything popular to get elected.' That is progress."
