Jon Stewart, Fox News & PolitiFact

On the Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart discussed our ruling. "I defer to their judgment and I apologize for my mistake." He then highlighted False statements from the Fox News Channel.

Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart told the Fox News Channel on Sunday: "Who are the most consistently misinformed media viewers? … Fox viewers, consistently, every poll."

That’s False, PolitiFact National determined.

Next, Stewart spent part of his latest program pointing out PolitiFact has found questionable several statements aired by the Fox News Channel — including two PolitiFact National lies of the year and a 2010 Pants-on-Fire statement about banishing Christmas from Texas textbooks.
