‘The Daily Show’ Takes Fox News to Task for Chinatown Piece

On The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, correspondent Ronnie Chieng tackled the controversial Chinatown segment by Jesse Watters that aired on Fox News earlier this week.

In the video, Watters interviewed Chinese-Americans in New York City’s Chinatown. Many of the people Watters talked to were not fluent in English and he asked them racially insensitive questions.

“Let me get this straight,” Chieng said, “they say ‘China’ in the debate so you go to Chinatown? In New York? So when they mention Mexico, do you send someone to Taco Bell?”

Chieng took his own crew down to Chinatown and spoke to the locals. This time, however, he spoke to them in their native language and had insightful conversations, proving that you learn more by talking directly to people rather than talking down to them.

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah airs weeknights at 11:00 p.m./10:00 p.m. CT on Comedy Central.
