On Wednesday night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart addressed the conservative media's treatment of an Oklahoma frat's drunken, racist chanting as the latest in a series of isolated incidents that are totally not indicative of any larger problems of racism in America.

Mika Brzezinski has "clarified" her statements, by the way, saying, "The students in the video are responsible for their behavior. And as we said on our show this morning, they did it, and it's beyond appalling."
"Popular culture becomes a cesspool, a lot of corporations profit off it," said guest Bill Kristol, "and then people are surprised that some drunk 19-year-old kids repeat what they've been hearing on the radio."
"Exactly!" said Brzezinski, who had already somehow managed to turn a conversation about racism into a conversation about Waka Flocka.
She's right about one thing, though. It is beyond appalling.
