Readers are reminded that shortly after the airing of this disgraceful sketch, Bozell issued Stewart a challenge:I used to be a liberal but now am proudly conservative mostly because of this kind of lefty hypocrisy.We dare you to prove you are an equal opportunity bigot. Your grotesque stunt displaying a Nativity scene in a vulgar manner to take a jab at Fox News is but the latest in a long line of unacceptable behavior and hypocrisy when it comes to the media’s treatment of traditional Christianity. Doing something similar with the Koran or the Torah is equally offensive. Since you’re so brave to offend Christians, are you equally brave to offend Muslims and Jews? We dare you.The Daily Show host has yet to accept the challenge. Color us very unsurprised. On a related note, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh took a tremendous amount of heat in February for his comments regarding Georgetown University Law student Sandra Fluke. As you recall, there was much rejoicing in the media when companies dropped their ads from his program. One hardly imagines Stewart's loss of Delta getting much attention from his fans in the press.
