Rough day for idiotic morning show, Fox & Friends. Just hours after Gretchen Carlson and company were confused by a three-year old picture of Obama with a pirate, Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update Thursday tore into the show, mocking both its blatant Romney favoritism and its issues with accuracy.

Jon Stewart Takes on Nancy Grace's Boobs, Fox & Friends' Pricks

Matt Cherette · 09/27/11 11:55PM

Thanks to Chaz Bono's knee injury and Nancy Grace's wardrobe malfunction, last night's Dancing with the Stars was a lesson in human anatomy. After expressing his horror at the sight of Grace's nipple on tonight's Daily Show, Jon Stewart couldn't wait to see how the prudes at Fox & Friends would react to it.
