Jon Stewart on Thursday continued to savage Fox News Channel’s coverage of the government shutdown.

Stewart unleashed a zinger on new “Fox & Friends” host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who observed that the media has largely placed blame for the shutdown on Republicans. 

“And they’re also blaming floods on water, not fire,” Stewart mocked. “And sunsets on the rotation of the Earth not giant, feathered serpents who devour the sun at night.”
