Video: O’Reilly and Jon Stewart banter about Fox News

I wanted to sex up the headline by saying they “clashed” or “argued,” but … it just ain’t so. They’re kind of chummy, actually, which is fascinating to watch in its own way but a letdown for anyone who was expecting a reprise of Stewart vs. Tucker Carlson on “Crossfire.” I wonder what they could have been commiserating about off-camera to put them in such a genial mood. Hmmmm.

Two segments for you here, but only the second is essential if you’re pressed for time. That’s where the two of them get into it over Fox and Glenn Beck’s identity as an “everyman.” Fun viewing on a slow news night.

Saw the broadcast, and Stewart’s take on FNC as an extension of the GOP, blah, blah, was lame. If his claim were true viewership would be down, not up, just like CNN, MSNBC and the nets are down. He’s actually ticked because the leftist media has real competition now in tv news & opinion and is losing the war of ideas. Without a monopoly the left cannot win and Stewart knows it. He looked foolish last night. Only die hard leftists and useful idiots would believe anything he says. The guy can be very funny at times though.

Tucker Carlson is a beta weasel weakling. Easy to pick on. If Stewart tried to pick on Papa Bear like he did with Carlson he’d get his ass handed to him. Look at him in this and previous interviews with O’Reilly – O’Reilly is fearless and relaxed, while Stewart is timid and uncomfortably cracking jokes as a defense mechanism to O’Reilly’s disses.

That’s why they’re “chummy”.
