On Tuesday night, Jon Stewart took a closer look at Fox News' A-team of medical experts, frequent visitors to Fox's home atop Bullsh*t Mountain. "Medical advice isn't really the focus of Fox News' experts," says Stewart, to no one's surprise. "They serve a much more important purpose -- to agree with Fox News talking points. For example, say the president wants everyone to have insurance? Who better to say that's a bad idea than a doctor?" (Yes, this happened.)

"These guys seem less like doctors, and more like the shady expert witnesses paid by the defense to say that's a bullet hole/exit wound/I don't know, maybe that's a third nipple," concluded Stewart.
