VIDEO-Nets Minimize Anti-Jew Jokes of New Daily Show Host, Rush to Defend | MRCTV

[See NewsBusters for more.] All three networks on Wednesday rushed to defend Trevor Noah, the newly-announced Daily Show host who has been attacked for making anti-Jewish, anti-Israel comments. ABC's Good Morning America avoided quoting the tweets. Instead, George Stephanopoulos summarized that Noah is "in the hot seat within online critics saying some of his tweets are sexist and anti-Semitic."  Reporter David Wright only allowed that the liberal comedian "has some outraged with snarky tweets more than a year old about, quote, 'fat chicks' and Jews." What were those tweets? Wright didn't offer specifics. Instead, the journalist assured, "Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi called the uproar much ado about nothing."
