Fox News is the most-watched cable news network on television. Fox, though, is not exactly honest with the viewers. The corporation even argued in court that they are more of an entertainment channel than a news organization.
Like Fox News, the Supreme Court is getting less credible by the day. In fact, Jon Stewart connected Fox and the SCOTUS during a recent podcast.
The former Daily Show host explained:
“You know, it would have been one thing if they sat in the confirmation hearings and said, ‘My entire ideological bearing is that life begins at conception and that abortion should be made illegal.’ And at the very least, you would respect their honesty and integrity. But this makes the court a cynical pursuit. It feels like the Fox News of Justice. That this is a political — having nothing to do with scholarship or anything else. This was a desire in search of a rationale.”
