(Newser) – Things went pretty smoothly for the networks on Election Night, Jon Stewart said on last night's Daily Show—with the screaming exception of the station he lovingly dubs "BMN: Bullshit Mountain News." Or as you know it, Fox News. Stewart runs down Fox pundits devoutly dismissing polls predicting an Obama victory, then gets right to the footage he said would "live forever": Karl Rove rejecting his own network's assertion that President Obama had won Ohio.

Replied Megyn Kelly: "Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better, or is this real?" Which, Stewart says, would be a better slogan for Fox than "Fair and Balanced" anyway. In short, Stewart proclaims it was "an avalanche on Bullshit Mountain," with Bill O'Reilly weighing in on the end of the "white establishment" and the fact that people "want stuff."
