And They Continue To Call Themselves News?

Watch this clip from last night's Daily Show with Jon Stewart, who caught the stupid, lying, insufferable Michele Bachmann and Sean Hannity inflate attendance numbers for the "Superbowl of Freedom" (oh god!). Not only that, Hannity used footage from two months ago to support the appearance of a larger crowd.

There is an additional point of irony which, strangely, Stewart and his excellent staff missed, and here it is: Hannity used footage from the 9/12 teabaggers' rally to support Thursday's presumed attendance of 20 to 45,000 people. But back in September, that same footage was shown to claim attendance figures of well over a million people. But then again, facts have never been Hannity's area of expertise.
