Jon Stewart Slams Fox News Over "Common" Issue

I love the Daily Show. Jon Stewart is pretty good about keeping both parties honest -- thats a baseball reference/analogy, I don't know anyone who could actually accomplish that.

Fox News did go too far, in my opinion, with trying to depict Common as a "vile rapper." I really felt like they were reaching with that one. I'm not sure where they got their intel, but for people who don't know how to read or listen to an entire poem -- I could see how his fox could exploit his work so people who listen at face value (or those who dont care enough to find out what he's does) could misconstrue his impact on the community.

For those who aren't too familiar with Commons Work, here are some of my favorite records:
A Dream
6th Sense
