Personally, I thought Stewart was being patronizing of O'Reilly's counterpoint. Basically, cutting away from Brown thanking his campaign staff, each by name, and his volunteers, and his mother, and his father, and on and on, really, it's doing us all a favor.Excerpted from Jon Stewart in the No Spin Zone, transcript, Fox News, Thursday, February 04, 2010
O'REILLY: The other night on your program, you criticized Fox News for bailing out of the president's back-and-forth with the GOP, after we used an hour of it, an hour, all right, and bailed out for about 12 minutes because we had other stuff to do.
O'REILLY: And you were offended, personally offended.
STEWART: I wasn't offended. I thought it was funny.

TRACE GALLAGHER, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: The president at times being a little bit combative.
STEWART: We're going to cut away because this is against the narrative that we present.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
O'REILLY: On Massachusetts vote night, when we covered Coakley's speech in the entirety...
O'REILLY: ...when we covered the winner's speech in the entirety, Brown, OK, and the other CNN and MSNBC didn't cover Brown.
STEWART: I should have...
O'REILLY: You didn't say a word, did you?
STEWART: You're absolutely right.
O'REILLY: I rest my case.
STEWART: Your case is rested.
The last 12 minutes of the Obama's encounter with the House Republicans was some of the best TV in the past year. Fox viewers missed out!
Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible. Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001
They covered Obama for a full hour. A full hour before cutting away. Exactly how is that biased?
And that is your liberal bias talking. They covered both speeches equally.Personally, I thought Stewart was being patronizing of O'Reilly's counterpoint. Basically, cutting away from Brown thanking his campaign staff, each by name, and his volunteers, and his mother, and his father, and on and on, really, it's doing us all a favor.
Yes and I'm sure they are up each night thinking about it because its never been replayed has it?The last 12 minutes of the Obama's encounter with the House Republicans was some of the best TV in the past year. Fox viewers missed out!
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
So he was spewing ignorant and dishonest lies about "the left" on CNN? So?He was saying all the same crazy stuff he says now.
You've yet to prove he's not a GOP mouth piece. You're welcome to. Anytime.He hasn't changed at all. The man may be politically unsophisticated in some regards but he certainly isn't a GOP mouthpiece. He's just a crazy bastard who says what he thinks and it resonates with regular Americans, which is why Fox News hired him (ratings!).

He was hating on whatever politicians were in power. The format of his show was very similar.So he was spewing ignorant and dishonest lies about "the left" on CNN? So?
How can I prove that Glenn Beck is NOT something? Can you prove that you're NOT a secret child molester?You've yet to prove he's not a GOP mouth piece. You're welcome to. Anytime.
Beck hasn't changed one bit since he left CNN. He gave it to Bush and the GOP while they were in power and now he's giving it to Obama and the Dems. He just hates politicians, doesn't matter who they are.
You've got an idea in your head, Hat, which means you won't be convinced otherwise.
