Jon Stewart Takes On Fox News' Selective Outrage

As some of you may know, during last Monday's episode of 'Dancing with the Stars', Nancy Grace had a "wardrobe malfunction".  Her right breast was hanging out of her dress, on live television, for the better part of a minute.

Immediately, word of the nipple slip spread like wildfire.  Every media outlet in the nation was reporting on the celebrity judge's embarrassing moment.  Even Fox News weighed in on the controversy.  Now, you would think that a woman's bare breast, shown repeatedly on national television would spark outrage by the pundits at Fox.  After all 'Dancing with the Stars' is supposedly a program that is going to be seen by "many children".  It airs at 7PM on Monday and Tuesday nights, on a network owned by the Disney corporation.

Not exactly.  The story received all of a ten second mention.  It was more along the lines of, "Supposedly this happened last night.  I wasn't watching the show, so I can't tell you if it did or not."  It was mentioned that Chaz Bono was dealing with a painful knee injury.  To segue into the next segment, one of the anchors mocked Bono by saying, "That's one part of Chaz that hasn't been operated on."

Watch the offensive clip, as well as Jon Stewart's reaction:

Fox News:  A bunch of middle school bullies with communication degrees.
