Jon Stewart will sign off from the “Daily Show” on Aug. 6, and last night he offered a clue as to one of the things he’ll be doing in that time: “I’m watching Fox News, which I’ll continue to do now for another 36 shows minus today’s open.”

With that, Stewart waded into the cable-news gossip topic of the week: President Obama’s poke at Fox News on Tuesday in a discussion on poverty at Georgetown University. “I think the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, are lazy, are undeserving, got traction. And, look, it’s still being propagated,” said the president. “I mean, I have to say that if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant menu — they will find folks who make me mad. I don’t know where they find them. They’re like, ‘I don’t want to work, I just want a free Obama phone’ — or whatever.”

That comment fueled a great deal of followup coverage on Fox News, as presidential remarks tend to do. Stewart ripped the network for fixating so much on Obama’s remarks about Fox News and not about the substance of his input at the event: namely, stuff about poverty, economic opportunity, families — in other words, the very topics that Fox News commentators, as Stewart noted in some carefully selected clips, have urged him to address.

Whether or not Obama is a “regular” watcher of Fox News, his point about the poverty-oriented worldview of Fox News is “easily provable and decidedly true,” Stewart argued, before showing a mashup of remarks from Fox News types lashing out at all the “moochers” in America. Example: “You’re not being mean to poor people?” Fox News host Gretchen Carlson asked Stuart Varney, who responded, “I am. I am being mean to poor people. Frankly I am.” There’s plenty more similar stuff.
