Jon Stewart goes hunting for fair coverage of the Tea Party

Last night on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart decided to lay into the media over coverage of the Tea Party. Lots of reporters succumb to the temptation to caricature when they cover political movements of all sorts -- Tea Partiers included. Ideally, though, Fox News would try to keep it honest at least while they are in the middle of getting sanctimonious about coverage of the Tea Party.

As they say, watch the whole thing.
