Making Shit Up

The following video is (a tiny bit) related to yesterday’s post on partisan news media. Jon Stewart considers coverage of Obama’s ceremonial first pitch at the All-Star game.

    Well…I hate to disagree with Stewart but Pujols did move forward and his glove was at the dirt when he caught the ball. Fox wasn’t really out of line as much as Stewart wants to make people believe.

    Really…in a sense…Stewart’s the one making s*** up.

    Jason… Note that I did not state specific agreement with Stewart. There’s all kinds of “making shit up” going on here — including Stewart. Which is why I found this segment interesting.

    I wasn’t thinking you were stating any kind of agreement. I was speaking about Stewart. 🙂 Then again, Stewart’s a semi-comedian so you should expect a little made up crap on his part.
