Jon Stewart aims his bemused and disappointed vitriol at any moving target. Sure it’s often his numero uno nemesis Fox News, but The New York Times isn’t safe either. An exercise in Marco Rubio muckraking at the Times came in for the Stewart treatment this week. Stewart doesn’t think what the Times turned up on the GOP presidential candidate from Florida meets the standards for front page news. One article took Rubio to task for his personal financial decisions, which have included carrying a lot of debt — but also nabbing an $800,000 book deal. (That’ll help out your debt load.) Rubio also bought a boat. Stewart’s reaction? So what!
Yet another Times article tried to paint Rubio as something of a careless, if not reckless, driver. Stewart was fake-news-aghast at the accusations. Rubio’s driving record looks squeaky clean to Jon Stewart.”Marco Rubio got four tickets! In 17 years! I assume The New York Times obtained this damning information from Marco Rubio’s plaque in the ‘Hall of Best Miami Drivers Ever,'” Stewart said.
