| by Michael Allen

On the 'Daily Show,' host Jon Stewart mocked the mainstream media for its claim that Anwar Al-Awlaki was one of the world's most "well-known terrorists." Then Stewart clarified that part of Al-Awlaki's reported terrorism was uploading videos of the "Daily Show,' which were taken down by Viacom.

Stewart also mocked the media for their description of Al-Awlaki as the "online Bin Laden" and his Facebook activities. Finally, Stewart questioned if Obama was legally allowed to "rain death from the sky" in reference to the CIA drone attack that killed Al-Awlaki.
