Stewart headed the segment first zoning in on those who were unhappy with the president for using executive power to make this decision about deportation. No other modern-day president has acted thusly. Except, of course, Stewart added, George W. Bush (regarding Liberia). And Bill Clinton. And George H. W. Bush. …And Ronald Reagan.
But he digressed, turning to Fox News’ segment that aimed to catch Obama contradicting his view of his own authority. In a video from less than a year ago. The clip Fox News played included Obama said the following:
[ I just have to continue to say this notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. We are doing everything we can administratively. But the fact of the matter is there are laws on the books that I have to enforce. And I think there’s been a great disservice done to the cause of getting the DREAM Act passed and getting comprehensive immigration passed by perpetrating the notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things. It’s just not true.]
The notion that somehow, by myself, I can go and do these things is just not true. What we can do is to prioritize enforcement — since there are limited enforcement resources — and say, we’re not going to go chasing after this young man or anybody else who has been acting responsibly, and would otherwise qualify for legal status if the DREAM Act passed.

So you are telling us breaking news? That the media in general picks and chooses what they want us to hear...don't be so foolish to think that either side is just....as far as the other poster stating that it was the humane thing to do...I'll let you in on a secret...it's all about getting the votes...you really think republicans are going to start sending people out of the country in busses? Don't be so foolish to think that...they may play the game that they do not support his bills but make no mistake just as Bush the next Republican will do nothing about immigration other than talk tough and make promises...similiar to Obama
IMO, these people should have their FCC license revoked for outright lying, over & over & over & over.........

Not breaking news, Political Madness. Furthermore, there is no comparison with respect to the devious tactics employed by Fox News as compared to any of the other mainstream news sources. Fox News is, without a doubt, at the very bottom of the barrel.

FOX will not lose their FCC license over lying and the reason is simple. According to Rupert Murdoch the owner of FOX claims FOX isn't a news service it's infotainment. That's why they can air all the BS they want.
Anyway, this is just stewart doing what he does, shill for the current government and president. I still remember in 2005 when he was interviewed by CNN (I think) and he was asked why he focuses so much on attacking the GOP and he said, "because they're the ones in charge". At this point I hope you realize he's a liar and a hypocrite?
STEWART: I think that there is a — probably a liberal bias that exists within the media that is because of the medium in which it exists. I think that the majority of people working in it probably hold liberal viewpoints, but I don’t think that they are as relentlessly activist as the conservative movement that has risen up over the last 40 years. And that movement has decided that they have been victims of a witch hunt. And to some extent they’re right. People on the right are called racists and they’re called things with an ease that I am uncomfortable with — and homophobic and all those other things. And I think that that is absolutely something that they have a real right to be angry about and to feel that they have been vilified for those things. And I’ve been guilty of doing some of those things myself.
WALLACE: I accept your apology.
