Fox News Channel has a new No. 1 enemy, and it’s not President Obama.
According to the New York Times, it’s Jon Stewart.
Says the article, "Last week that comedian did something that the hosts of ‘Fox & Friends,’ the morning show on Fox News, did not do: he had his staff members call the White House and ask a question."
It was about logo for the recent nuclear arms summit. The logo was crescent-shaped, and, the article said, " ‘Fox & Friends’ had repeatedly asked" if the logo "was an ‘Islamic image,’ one selected by President Obama in his outreach to the Muslim world. The White House told ‘The Daily Show’ that the logo was actually based on the Rutherford-Bohr model of the atom."
The article also notes that Fox commentator Bill O’Reilly has "called Mr. Stewart a ‘devoted critic’ of Fox News and said ‘his influence is growing.’"
The Times article says Fox News declined comment.
