Video: Jon Stewart Compares Media Coverage of Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party

On the 'Daily Show,' (video below) host Jon Stewart took a look at the difference between the media’s coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protests and the coverage of the Tea Party rallies. Stewart said that, after weeks of protests, the media has reset its “coverage dial” from “blackout” to “circus," which are apparently its only two settings.

While Fox News was more than eager to praise and fawn over the anti- health care Tea Party demonstrators, commentators such as Ann Coulter and Steve Doocy have alternately called the 'Occupy Wall Street' protesters “muddled” and "totalitarian fascists" who "hate capitalism."
