Last night Bill O’Reilly had Jon Stewart on for the first of a two day segment. I found it so-so. Jon Stewart was pretty much Jon Stewart and of course leveled aspersions against Fox News:
But most of all, Stewart used his second appearance ever on "The O'Reilly Factor" to levy a robust critique of Fox News and its coverage of President Obama.
"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," the comedian told his host.
What is funny about this, is that Stewart spent the better part of the last eight years working his smaller cyclonic perpetual emotional machine to make Bush and Cheney look like rulers of the Third Reich.
Of course O’Reilly loves that Stewart went there, because Bill loves to tout the fact that Fox is number 1. What I wish Bill had called Stewart on was his remark at 1:52. Stewart totally wants the balance of power in government squished and have debate cut off. Total fascism.
All in all there were some funnies, but it was oh so predictable. What did you think?
