Jon Stewart Strikes Again

"In the wake of the collapse of Saddam Hussein's regime, many American journalists reported on looting perpetrated by some of the Iraqis. Well, you'll be happy to know that now Iraqi journalists can return the favor.

"In recent weeks, US customs officials have accused at least two American journalists of stealing artwork and weapons from Iraq. Benjamin James Johnson, a 27-year-old Fox News engineer, was charged with attempting to bring 12 paintings he stole from one of Hussein's palaces into the United States last week.

"Fox immediately terminated Mr. Johnson...thus, finally answering the question: just what does a guy have to do to get fired from Fox News?"
