<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2015/04/01/nets-rush-defend…; 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&#39;s Good Morning America avoided quoting the tweets. Instead, George Stephanopoulos summarized that Noah is &quot;in the hot seat within online critics saying some of his tweets are sexist and anti-Semitic.&quot;&nbsp; Reporter David Wright only allowed that the liberal comedian &quot;has some outraged with snarky tweets more than a year old about, quote, &#39;fat chicks&#39; and Jews.&quot; What were those tweets? Wright didn&#39;t offer specifics. Instead, the journalist assured, &quot;Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi called the uproar much ado about nothing.&quot;&nbsp;</p>
