controlled opposition

The Daily Show enhances and spreads islamaphobia on a regular basis.

Whenever there is a "wack-o" Muslim story, you can almost guarantee it will be covered by the Daily Show. Most recently the ISIS fervor, and before this Boko Haram. I used to watch this show regularly but in the last few years its just been non-stop and unbearable.

Great, he FINALLY has a limited criticism of Israel. Various Israeli atrocities occur every week, yet none of them make it to the show. At the same time, he will regularly air every single random story of a Muslim in negative context.

I am not saying Jon Stewart himself is designing a master plan of spreading Islamic hate. But the producers and editors of this show readily use Muslims as the butt of their jokes and rarely ever criticize the state of Israel.
