    com tds fox nazis 100414b Stewart: Fox News logo like Nazi propagandaAn Obama administration logo for the Nuclear Security Summit might be a secret nod to Muslims if you believe some conservatives and even Fox News. They say that the logo sports a crescent similar to those seen on the flags of Muslim nations.

    Following the lead of those conservative pundits, Comedy Central's Jon Stewart looked into the Fox News logo and mockingly claimed to have found shocking similarities to fascist imagery.

    The controversy appears to have been sparked by a Wednesday column in the New York Post by Michael Goodwin.

    "The crescent, often with a single or multiple stars, is the main symbol of Islam," Goodwin wrote. "So now there is something like it at an official presidential event, prominently displayed in photographs being beamed around the world."

    Only hours later, Fox News attempted to further the debate.

    The Fox graphic predates The Nazi invasion of Poland.

    Nice logic, champ. Obama was the most voted-for presidential candidate. Doesn't mean he sucks any less, does it?
