Back in 2010 Lupus and autoimmune patients everywhere were delighted when comedian Jon Stewart mentioned these conditions in one of his jokes. Outlining his complaints about Fox News, Stewart twice referred to Fox as “the Lupus of News,” – as in an overreaction to an imagined threat. Now personal opinions about Fox News aside, you’ve got to credit Stewart’s writers for correctly describing autoimmune conditions. We know the mechanism of the illness is not widely understood, so it makes you wonder who in the inner circle has personal experience with the illness? Watch the video clip here and have a laugh. There’s no better way to spread awareness to the masses than with pop culture humor.
