The thing about this video is the smug nature in which Sean and his Faux News team treat his “apology” about an “inadvertent” mistake they made airing false video footage. It’s as if they think they are so smart to have gotten away with it. They wouldn’t even acknowledge it but for the fact that Stewart expertly skewered their asses.

Nothing about this was inadvertent. If they hadn’t meant to air misleading footage they’d have no reason to produce a graphic entitled “Earlier”. This graphic was clearly meant to be a disclaimer of sorts and also mislead people into thinking the footage was of the November rally and not the September one.

What’s left to do when you’re caught red handed? Smile and apologize and hope that memories are short.
