Jon Stewart Mocks Sean Hannity’s ‘Shocking’ Expose of Spring Break Debauchery (Video)
Here’s Jon Stewart with the only reasonable response to the full week of coverage that Fox News’s Sean Hannity gave to the alleged horrors of Spring Break: “You will believe what they found, because you know” — drinking, sex, drinking, and sex. Still, you have to admit it takes some guts for Hannity to pretend that he has actually uncovered a shocking surprise, a mere decade after The Real Cancun made a few bucks for MTV. “Women take their tops off! … Drinking, drugs, risky behavior, sometimes with tragic results.” By golly, if one were of a cynical cast of mind, they might almost conclude that, as Stewart says, the entire 5-day exposé was “less of a news story and more of a reason to spend a week running wildly inappropriate T&A footage alongside pundits tssking said footage.”
Ah, but there was far more to it than that, says Stewart, because it also gave Fox the chance to condemn these terrible parents who enable such debauchery by funding their offspring’s spring break shenanigans. Tsk and tsk again, say members the Hannity panel, as they reminisce about their own Spring Break hijinks of yesteryear.
“So what kind of shitty parents let their kids go to spring break? Oh right, your shitty parents! You clearly don’t want kids today doing the terrible things you have such fond memories of doing.”
And right there you have a pretty good analysis of the Hannity formula — all you need to know about the moral tenor of the “investigation” is pretty much summed up by perpetual douchebro Gavin McInnes, who was apparently added to the panel just so he could proclaim that he’d never let his daughter would never be allowed to attend such sandy a den of iniquity, but he bet his sons would “have a great time.”
