Jon Stewart on The Power of the Photo-Op Backdrop

Crooks and Liars | October 12 2006

As John mentioned the other day, Dennis Hastert chose to give his press conference about the Foley scandal in front of a cemetary. Well, Jon Stewart and the brilliant Daily Show team picked up on it and started off Tuesday's show with a hilarious skit about the power and symbolism of the meticulosuly chosen photo-op backdrop. They also pick up on the slightly more flattering angle FOX News chose to shoot the press conference.

Stewart: That sounds to me like your publicist said "Hey, you know what? I quit." Because your speech was excellent; you said "I will fight on…" but the background seemed to say, "Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death."
