Jon Stewart: Fox News Is ‘the Biggest Bunch of Crybabies I Have Dealt With in My 30 Years in Washington’


Daily Show host Jon Stewart is clearly still stinging from his encounter with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday a couple of weeks ago. After having complained on the air that his appearance was overly edited down, Stewart last night went on a rampage against Fox News and their conservative victimization strategy. From the Washington Post's summary:

“Any editorial judgment in news, or schools, or movies, that doesn’t favor the conservative view, is elitism and is evidence of liberal bias. Whereas any editorial judgment that FAVORS the conservative view, is evidence of merely fairness and done to protect them from liberal bias ... And, if you criticize Fox for this game, guess what that’s evidence of? How right they are about how persecuted they are. It is air tighter than an otters [heinie]…They can’t lose. But you know what this whole ‘victim thing’ makes Fox? Well, perhaps this term a friend of mine used once to describe the current presidential administration is most apt:”

Then he played a clip of Wallace himself calling the Obama administration "the biggest bunch of crybabies I have dealt with in my 30 years in Washington." To be fair, this is the world of politics and media we're talking about. Isn't pretty much everybody a crybaby?
