Jon Stewart Responds To Fox News Outrage Over Common

Once again, Fox News has created a stir out of nothing and once again Jon Stewart has destroyed their argument by using their own words against them.

Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity have been poorly quoting select verses written by Common in outrage over his invitation to perform poetry at the White House's celebration of poetry on Wednesday night.

Watch the clips above to see how a comedy show is more truthful than a "news" network.

Regardless of whether you think Common was a suitable choice to perform at Michelle Obama's poetry event, you have to admit that Fox News is basically just making stuff up at this point.

They refer to all of these individual verses in Common's poem, but fail to understand (or maybe purposely ignore) the bigger picture of what the poem was trying to say by using the language in question.

We'd like to thank the Daily Show for taking the time to point out with strong, visual, undeniable evidence of Fox News' shameful attempts to discredit the Obama administration any chance they get, as well as talented artists like Common who get caught in the political crossfire.

Fox News And Sarah Palin Outraged By Common's White House Invite

Sean Hannity is up in arms over Michelle Obama inviting rapper Common to come to the White House for an evening celebrating poetry on Wednesday.

On Tuesday during his show, the Fox News personality criticized the First Lady's decision because he believes that the White House is setting a bad example by allowing a "controversial" rapper to…come inside? Ha!

He's not alone either!

On Tuesday, Sarah Palin tweeted:

"Oh lovely, White House…"

So WHAT'S the big deal?

Common spit out an anti-Bush verse while performing a poem at a 2007 Def Poetry event.

Oh, the horror! What poet DIDN'T spit out an anti-Bush verse in 2007? LOLz!

We believe it's called, wait, what's that expression? It's on the tip of our tongue. It's so close! It's — oh yeah — FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

If you'd like to see Hannity ATTEMPT to read the poem in question, then proceed to yell over the commentator ATTEMPTING to offer a different point of view (and educated), check out the video above.

Are U upset that Common is appearing at the White House poetry event or is Fox News and their conservative cohorts blowing this WAY out of proportion?

Oops! Are Those Kate Middleton's Wedding Vows???

Filed under: Royals RoyceOops!Love LineKate MiddletonPhotos!

kate middleton royal wedding vows may have been revealed

What have you got there, Kate? Could that be part of your wedding vows???

Check out the photo (above) of a piece of paper from the back of Kate Middleton's car, which has got some poetic writing on it.

While it's not 100% clear, one of the lines on the piece of paper seems to read as follows:

"With so much love within our hearts."

Def sounds to us like this could be an indicator that William and Kate wrote their vows themselves.

Guess we'll find out soon!

Do U think we're getting a glimpse at marriage vows? Or is it something else?

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.

How romantic! Not that we expected him to say anything negative!

Russell Brand once again opened up about his marriage to Katy Perry, and had a pretty poetic description of what it's like to kiss the pop star!

When speaking about her lips, he reveals:

"They are a conduit to paradise, a tunnel to another world. They are redemption, salvation, glory, poetry!"

Ha! Well, shiz!

Isn't that so sweet that you just want to gag?! And then give her lips a test run yourself to confirm that his description is on par?!

You guys keep on enjoying that tunnel!

Thoughts??
