Epic ‘Daily Show’ Vine Captures 50 Fox News Lies in Six Seconds

From TakePart.com:

We still have a few months until Jon Stewart ends his tenure as host of The Daily Show, but if Wednesday night’s episode is any indication, the comedian and his team are determined to go out in a blaze of glory. Stewart took on recent statements from some Fox News hosts that he uses “dishonest editing” and that his stories “have no foothold in the facts” by turning the spotlight on a few of the fibs that have been said on the air at that network.

Stewart hilariously challenged Fox News to a “lie-off” and ran a six-second Vine video featuring 50 mistruths that have been spoken by talking heads at Fox since 1999.

From The Guardian:

A prominent American blogger of Bangladeshi origin was hacked to death with machetes by unidentified assailants in Dhaka, police said, with the atheist writer’s family claiming he had received numerous threats from Islamists.

The body of Avijit Roy, founder of Mukto-Mona (Free-mind) blog site which champions liberal secular writing in the Muslim-majority nation, was found covered in blood after the attack which also left his wife critically wounded.

“He died as he was brought to the hospital. His wife was also seriously wounded. She has lost a finger,” local police chief Sirajul Islam said.

The couple were on a bicycle rickshaw, returning from a book fair, when two assailants stopped and dragged them onto a sidewalk before striking them with machetes, local media reported citing witnesses.
