    The unedited interview was one of the best interviews I have ever seen.
    Jon Stewart has always been my absolute favorite, and this has affirmed for me how great he is.

    The aired unedited interview appears directly below in the link.

    Oh yeah...he's really great a making funny faces and bashing Republicans most of the time and Dems some of the time. But when he's called on his obvious bias he falls back on the "I'm just a comedian" line. Sorry can't do that if you want to be taken seriously which he clearly does.

    And now he's mad because, wait for it, Chris Wallace edited the interview which is how Stewart earns his pay every night. Give me a break.

    Factcheck found some errors on Stewart's part but Fox News still puts out a lot of false information. Who cares? After hearing how some voters receive their news, it is not as bad as one I heard. The voter does not read papers or watch the news so he keeps up with stuff by hearing it from his co-workers. OMG.

    Fox News is really obsessed with Jon Stewart.

    To be fair, that's mutual.

    (Although on the other hand, they do make it way too easy for him.)

    Factcheck?
    Thanks, I never visited that site before.
    Could you link to what you are referring to please.
    I can't find it with the search function there.

    If you were in the habit of deliberately doing a whole lot of stupid crap and someone publicly mocked you for all the stupid crap you did, well you might seek to improve your behavior because you have a vestige of a soul.

    The people at Fox News, on the other hand, would rather try to kill the messenger.

    Agreed-but they really seem to focus on him and are obsessed with getting him on their shows.

    Jon never denied his bias. He is very frustrated, like many others, that the "news" concentrates on sensationalism and non-news. I can't stand now when I'm in an airport and blasted with CNN over the PA. There's no news in it. It's all feel good crap, totally useless R vs D political banter, or regurgitated press releases under the guise of reporting.

    I did appreciate seeing Wallace, supposedly one of their serious news guys, admit that Fox News is a counterbalance. It's not "fair and balanced," it's specifically engineered to be unbalanced and pull the entire media conversation towards the GOP point of view.

    Yes, Jon Stewart may interview somebody for 10 minutes and only show 8 for time constraints. That's called editing.

    What FOX did, purposely editing out their host admitting that the stations motto has been a lie for 15 years is also called editing.

    Those 2 things are exactly the same. :rolleyes:

    It's also noteworthy that Wallace's one clip of Diane Sawyer that proves "liberal bias" was 100% a lie.

    Well, it is hard to be perfect, I'm sure both Stewart and Fox News stretch the truth on occasion. The real question is how they deal with it when called on it.

    What were each of their responses when Factcheck said they were wrong?

    Interesting exchange at 1:30 - 3:00 on vid number 2. Disappointed in Wallace not responding to that.

    Exactly. Jon says "You're biased" and Wallace shows an ABC clip saying "Isn't that bias". That's not showing that you're "fair and balanced", that's like a 10 year old saying "Well, Johnny did it too!"

    Wallace just couldn't accept that Stewart's "agenda" is to make people laugh first and foremost.

    I am so dissppointed in Wallace. I guess he needed a job so he is conforming to his employer's wishes.
    A question - does anybody in the world not believe that Fox and MSNBC are biased? I mean is this news to anybody?

    I watched all three on September 11th, 2001. I was sent home from work because the base I worked at actually thought that Al Qaeda could find the town I live in. (They couldn't find this place with a GPS and a map) :)

    MSNBC has changed since then but MSNBC was the most reliable. I was actually watching CNN live when the attack happened but during the day MSNBC seemed to have the most actual news. Fox had a tendency to report a lot of rumors.

    Note: during the Bush administration, the TVs at the base I was at were always on Fox. The reason: they could determine what the administration was talking about. Yes, it was a conduit to the Bush administration.

    I tried watching Fox after Obama was elected so I could get some opposition opinion etc. but I lasted only about two days.
