Jon Stewart Bashes Fox News on “O’Reilly Factor”…On Fox News (VIDEO)
Jon Stewart may only be 5’6”, but he’s not scared of big, bad Bill O’Reilly. According to The Los Angeles Times, the political comedican will appear on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor for a debate over Obama, tort reform, global warming and the trials of the 9/11 terrorists. Jon and Bill are two of the most popular personalities in cable – and have strong views on opposite sides of the political fence.
“Stewart, S-T-E-W-A-R-T,” Jon told the security guard in the lobby of Fox News’ midtown Manhattan headquarters. “I’m here to get crushed by O’Reilly.” Despite the joke, he used his second appearance on The O’Reilly Factor to stand up for himself and criticize Fox News’ coverage of the Obama administration. Check out the video:
“Here’s what Fox has done, through their cyclonic perpetual emotional machine that is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: They have taken reasonable concerns about this president and this economy and turned it into full-fledged panic attack about the next coming of Chairman Mao,” Jon said.
I think some people do that, but most people don’t,” Bill responded, calling it “the narrative of a couple of guys.”
Excerpts from the debate aired on Wednesday editions of The O’Reilly Factor and more will air today. (The full, unedited sit-down will be posted tonight on FoxNews.com.)
