Jon Stewart Scolds the Media For Ignoring Ron Paul

Jon Stewart blasted the MSM tonight for ignoring Presidential candidate Ron Paul.  Only Stewart can reduce a Ron Paul supporter to tears of laughter when the topic is the marginalization of the Republican Presidential candidate by the MSM.

Stewart played numerous clips where Bachmann, Romney, and Perry were described as the “top tier.” “You’re not forgetting anyone?” Stewart asked, referring to Ron Paul.
Stewart then plays a clip with an analyst telling viewers not to forget about Rick Santorum– to which Stewart responds: “he lost to the guy who lost so bad he dropped out of the race!”– and Jon Huntsman, who got 69 votes. “If all of Jon Huntsman’s supporters met at the Ames, Iowa Quiznos, the fire marshal would say, ‘yeah, that’s fine, there are some more tables open in the back.’”
Stewart finishes off with a clip of a CNN anchor requesting a reporter leave out the Ron Paul reporting if they found any juicy Sarah Palin stuff– with Stewart saying “I mean, f*ck that guy, right?

The full clip is included below, Stewart's Ron Paul rant begins at 4:45 into the clip.
