Jon Stewart was visibly amped up on Wednesday as he reacted to the “rich buffet of bullshit” served up by Fox News in their coverage of poverty.

This week, Fox hosts reacted in unison to a criticism from President Obama made during a panel at Georgetown on Tuesday, after the he said the channel demonized the poor.

“Yep, just like college students at a four-hour commencement, Fox News basically pays no attention until they hear their own names,” the host of “The Daily Show” said.

Fox host Stuart Varney cried that Obama was dodging discussion of his own policy failures and attacking “us, the honest messengers.”

“The honest messengers,” Stewart said, in disbelief.

Stewart rolled a barrage of clips (a “prick-fest”) cataloging “Fox’s contempt for those in poverty,” including features named things like, “Entitlement Nation,” “freeloaders,” “moochers,” and poor people “sucking on the nipple of the government.”
