Jon Stewart Torches Fox News For Wild Hypocrisy On Charleston (VIDEO)

June 23, 2015 7:06 a.m.

Jon Stewart on Monday didn’t spare anyone at Fox News in a rant against the channel’s reaction to the killings in Charleston, S.C. on Wednesday and its hosts’ disgust at liberals exploiting a tragedy to “advance your narrative.”

“They are amazing at what they do,” the host of “The Daily Show” began.

“Remind me what happened this past December this year when two New York City cops were tragically killed during a time when people were protesting police shootings against unarmed black men?”

“Talk to me about the restraint Fox used in not advancing their narrative,” Stewart said.

Roll a montage of Fox hosts Sean Hannity, Andrea Tantaros, Jeanine Pirro, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and guests Bernie Kerik, Rich Lowry and Rudy Giuliani accusing President Obama and Mayor Bill De Blasio of having, in Kerik’s words, “blood on their hands.”

“So you used β€” no restraint,” Stewart said slowly.
