Jon Stewart does it again with a rant that is simultaneously hilarious and yet so terrifyingly accurate about Fox News that, of course, we had to share.

The Daily Show aptly titled the clip "Mighty Morphin Position Changers."

And Stewart quickly cuts to the chase, bashing Fox News for failing to report on the DOJ report that revealed widespread racism throughout the Ferguson police department, despite Fox being a 24-hour news channel.

Instead Fox anchors, according to Stewart, decided to leave out that information so they could further their biased coverage.

"The lesson Fox News is getting at is very clear. Wouldn't it be nice if people who jumped to conclusions and peddled a false, divisive, anger-stoking narrative had to apologize for misleading America?" Stewart asked with a dry look that did leaps and bounds to call out Fox News' hypocrisy.

Stewart then moved on to Fox's inadequate coverage of Benghazi, saying, "They demand accountability for anger and divisiveness whilst holding themselves entirely unaccountable for their anger and divisiveness."

"For two years, they [Fox News] used Benghazi as shorthand, as a symbol for the whole concept of a corrupt, lying, tyrannical — possibly murderous — Obama White House," Stewart concludes. "Kind of like other people used 'Hands Up Don't Shoot' as a symbol for systemic racism. There's really only one difference between the two phenomena: systemic racism actually exists."

As Stewart always does in his rants, clips of Fox News reporters disseminating their "tsunami of misinformation" are peppered throughout, which only serve to further prove Stewart's point that the information is disturbingly one-sided.

And yet there is no accountability for these narratives except from other journalists — in this case, Stewart.
