On his Monday program, Comedy Central “The Daily Show” anchor Jon Stewart apologized for a recent error he had made by including the San Bernardino Co., CA Dante Parker case in a list of incidents of police brutality across the nation.
As it turned out, Stewart was incorrect and faced backlash from San Bernardino Co. District Attorney Mike Ramos for the error, who addressed Stewart publicly.
But shortly after coming clean about the mistake, Stewart launched into an attack on the Fox News Channel, which had pointed out Stewart’s error on various occasions over the past week. Stewart specifically addressed “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade.
“F-ck you, Brian – seriously, f-ck you,” Stewart said. “That is so far out of line, that even within the confines of this bit — ostensibly accepting blame for everything that’s coming my way for a factual error I really do regret, f-ck you, ears, eyes, nose and throat. In fact, if I hadn’t told you to f-ck off, I would have had to apologize on tomorrow night’s show for being factually incorrect.”
