Jon Stewart took Fox News to task on Wednesday night for their rather strange election night coverage. Just one night following Stewart’s The Daily Show live election night show, he spent an entire segment tearing down the news channel’s coverage due to their unusual presentation.

He began with a flourish: “Last night, tragically, there was an avalanche on Bullsh*t Mountain,” and boy was he right. The previous night he’d discussed in great detail the election itself and the results. However, Wednesday night’s show was reserved for mocking Fox and how they chose to cover the election results.

In the moments following the announcement that the election had been called for President Obama, Karl Rove, a Republican political advisor and commentator, had a meltdown on live TV, greatly questioning the election night results. He just couldn’t seem to comprehend that Obama had won Ohio, even though 74-percent of the vote for the state had already come in.

After much scrambling to convince the pundits on the network that Romney could still win, Megan Kelly hurried down to talk to the number crunchers for the network. Upon questioning, they were still quite certain that Obama had won, since the remaining 26-percent of the vote to be counted came from districts that were heavily Democratic.

Stewart, with his usual flair, tore down the network and Rove in particular. The really funny part was when the anchors started mocking Rove for being ridiculous. In fact, Megan Kelly even asked him if his evaluation of the numbers was just something Republicans tell themselves to feel better! Quite an amazing statement from a network that is notoriously conservative.

More than anything else, the network’s inability to believe that Romney could lose was what was the most unbelievable. Stewart highlighted that point clearly with a great deal of sarcasm. And we wouldn’t expect anything less.
