When will conservative commentators stop picking fights with Jon Stewart? It never ends well for them. If you have a spare 12 minutes, watch this clip all the way through to the end. You know what, I’ve always wanted to do this too. Hey – Fox News – go fuck yourselves!

    This is (un)seriously funny. I increased the size of the display so people could get a good view of it.

      Thanks Lynn. A good view is needed of that dance he does at the end. I’d like to try it myself but I’d probably just throw a hip out.

      More seriously though, how is a rational person supposed to respond to Fox News? What do you do in the face of insane bias presented as “fair and balanced”? Is Stewart’s response the only one possible?

      • lprent 1.1.1

        Pretty much. I view Fox ‘news’ as just being entertainment. The only people who could view it as being news are the seriously deranged

          Given that Fox News is the watched news channel in America….

          • lprent

            And yes, the obvious inference can be made.

            Of course watching the conduct of their foreign and economic policy tends to support this. Especially the motivations behind the zombie-like lurching into conflicts like Vietnam and Iraq v2.

            On the other hand, their mastery of turning technology into dollars is simply masterful.

            On the other hand, their management of their forthcoming social security deficit crisis is abysmal …

            On the other hand…

            Well the country is just plain weird. Watching Fox ‘news’ is merely a symptom.

    I’m not sure that many Fox viewers would understand the jokes!
    Such a shame we can’t get him on C4 anymore. I always thought Americans didn’t get irony- then I started watching John and Tina Fey.

    • Lanthanide 2.1

      It’s on Comedy Central nightly at 7:30 (re-run of previous night) and 10:30.

  3. The daily show’s web page has all the clips you could want.

    I only wish when Stewart has Orielly on his show he would go after him more.

  4. Lanthanide:

    Is that the international version he does, or the USA version?

    Here’s Goldberg having a wee cry.

  6. mach1 6

    Goldberg v Stewart isn’t new.

  7. Paul Williams 7

    Best twelve minutes of my day

  8. katie may 8

    Screw the argument – I’m frankly mesmerized by the glam shade of orange that is O’Reilly’s skin-tone. D-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s.

    won’t play on my pc – says I need to install adobe flash. Which I’ve tried to do – several times – but it never seems to work.

    Loved this link.

    Lynn, is there anyway of encoding/embedding these type of vids so they play on the iPhone?

    The day Flash is dead and buried can’t come soon enough.

    • lprent 10.1

      Nope not that I’m aware of. Apple are dead against flash (can’t really blame them – massive security hole). But you can play YouTube on the iPhone. So I suppose I could look at doing links to YouTube when it is available there.

      I’ll ponder that today
