Jon Stewart announced last night he stands with the “free speech absolutists Fox News” in support of Robertson’s statements in a GQ interview released earlier this week.
“I think what the guy said is ignorant but I also have an inclination to support a world where saying ignorant sh*t on television doesn’t get you kicked off that medium.”
Stewart then goes on to discuss how Fox’s respect of free speech doesn’t seem to extend to the holidays, or to people who choose to use the phrase “Happy Holidays.” Stewart then played a series of clips where Fox News has encouraged thousands of viewers to call government officials and private businesses to express their displeasure at the use of the phrase “Happy Holidays”.
Lastly a clip of the Duck Dynasty cast wishing their viewers “Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Holidays.”
