ABC takes some lumps as well

(Newser) – Do you love to watch Jon Stewart rip on Fox News? Because the Huffington Post sure does. It points out this delightful clip from last night's Daily Show, in which Stewart rakes Fox over the coals for its persistent Islamophobia, highlighting first its over-the-top reaction to NASA's Muslim outreach programs, and then its suggestion that building new mosques in America will somehow undermine US laws.

But Stewart saves his best dig for Diane Sawyer, showing a clip in which the ABC anchor asks the Fox-worthy question, "Should Muslims be allowed to build their mosques in the communities of their choosing?" Stewart was aghast. "And coming up next," he quipped, "should Puerto Ricans be allowed to lower your property values? Should the Irish be allowed to vote?"
