    Stewart just pwned Chris Wallace. The media was right, FOX is scared of him.

    The interview is about 15 minutes and WELL WORTH your time.

    From the insult at the introduction, throughout the interview, Wallace (one of the more reasonable on Fox) wanted to have a "gotcha" moment with Stewart during which he would confirm all the fears and suspicion of Fox viewers...that Jon Stewart is a tool of the liberal media. He failed.

    Stewart is smarter in front of the camera than Wallace, and it showed.

    It was pretty good,Stewart called out fox and Wallace and the propaganda machine they are. Fox isnt news its propaganda with lots of spin and half truths. Stewarts viewer ratings are higher and fox is allways trying to brag on its own ratings.

    No kidding. Wallace was no contest. He just had to read through their list of questions Fox News prepared and take it from Stewart. :D

    completely worth watching it because he got owned.

    You would think that these shows would learn not to bring Stewart on their shows after he was on CNN hardball and owned them. He tears them to shreds every time he is brought on a news shows.

    it is really making me have to start watching every Daily show again because I always liked it.

    That was good. Fox compares themselves with Comedy Central, and compares Wallace with Stewart. That's what cracks me up. Even after Stewart repeatedly tried to point that out, the guy didn't get it (or it didn't fit with his line of questions).

    CNN Crossfire. Also worth watching.



    It's my only appointment TV.

    If I was on the other side Stewart is the single person I would least want to debate.

    He's frankly brilliant while also being funny, likable and articulate.

    The "your insane" comment isn't the crux of this interview, the other stuff is much more significant.

    Fox News has a different definition of what Fair and Balanced means than normal people do.

    Oh, I know that.:)

    I know exactly what they really are: a tool used by the right wing to spread their point of view and propaganda.

    I just find it comical that they always tout and try to stand behind their Fair and Balanced motto, and here was Wallace caught in an actual honest moment telling it like it really is: they aren't unbiased and they have a side of the story to tell (instead of telling the story from an unbiased point of view).

    He's probably getting whipped as we speak for letting their "secret" out. ;)

    Heh. Either that or he's been removed from the FNC office email forwarding list for a short period. No more Obama is a Kenyan socialist Muslim who wants to take our guns and destroy Israel emails for him for a while! He'll have nothing to talk about at the water cooler.:D

    Short of being fired and having to take a job at a real news station, that seems like a fate worse than death.

    Did that interview air in full? I thought it was a good interview and Mr. Stewart is dead-on about the sensationalism in the media.

    People act like FOX is the only news channel.

    I absolutely hate FOX, but I also hate all the other news channels too because they are all supported by political parties. CNN is as liberal as they get and FOX is as conservative as they get. So what?

    CNN is as liberal as they get? Most of the liberal criticism is directed towards MSNBC, and Stewart even admits that they have a liberal bias, as will most liberals. The point is, that unlike Stewart, they call themselves news organizations.

    CNN isn't "as liberal as they get". MSNBC is. CNN is left-leaning, but it's closer to center than MSNBC.

    I completely agree with Jon Stewart on the fact that these news organizations shouldn't be called news organizations... It's just the fact that everyone rips on FOX when other news organizations are just as bad is ridiculous.

    Again, I will state that I don't watch any of these news organizations for that very reason. They are all biased.

    I'm sorry, but they aren't all as bad as FNC. They just aren't.

    FNC is unlike any other.

    they may be bad but no were near as bad as Fox.

    Being better than Fox is not saying much. Fox is the worse of the new stations but the others are pretty bad as well. They do not care about facts they care about getting viewers.
