    Ding, ding, ding! The latest round in Jon Stewart vs. Fox News was on The Daily Show last night (6/27/11) and the clear winner was… Stewart. In his inimitable way he destroyed Chris Wallace’s most recent laughable defense of Fox News. Then Stewart summed up Fox’s operating principle in one of the best, most succinct analyses I’ve heard ever. “That narrative of conservative victimization is the true genius of what Fox News has accomplished,” Stewart began.

    Here’s how Stewart explained the rest of it:

    Any editorial judgment in news or schools or movies that doesn’t favor the conservative view is elitism and it’s evidence of liberal bias whereas any editorial judgment that favors the conservative view is evidence merely of fairness - and done to protect them from liberal bias. And if you criticize Fox for this game, guess what that’s evidence of? How right they are about how persecuted (they are). It is air-tighter than an otter’s anus… They can’t lose.
