On the June 21, 2004, episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, host Jon “Stewart played [Vice President Dick] Cheney’s outright denial that he had ever said that representatives of al-Qaeda and Iraq intelligence met in Prague [Czech Republic], and then Stewart froze Cheney’s image and played the exact video clip when Cheney had indeed said exactly that in exactly the words he had denied. He caught him on videotape in a blatant lie. At that point, Stewart said, addressing himself to Cheney’s frozen image on the television screen, ‘It’s my duty to inform you that your pants are on fire.’ ”
