After I heard that Texas had banned same-sex couples or LGBT people from adopting children in desperate need of a loving home, I switched over to my favorite fake-news show, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central to see their take on this issue. I certainly was happy to see Jon call Texas out for their homophobic discriminatory
bullshit politics. And so was G.L.A.A.D., obviously.
‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ Uses Humor to Skewer Homophobes –April 26, 2005
In its “fake news” coverage, ‘The Daily Show’ uses its incisive wit to bring to light the bigotry and prejudice of those who oppose full civil rights for gay and lesbian people. Stewart’s comments on the Texas measure to bar gay men and lesbians from becoming foster parents are particularly on-target.
Feel free to watch the clip it’s very entertaining and true, really. I can always count Jon and his fake journalist cohorts to call out neoconservative wingnuttery when it’s ‘gone wild’ like this. And then reduce them to amusing satire and parodies.
