Jon Stewart Says His Fox News Bias Argument With Chris Wallace Was Edited All Wrong

by

“I suggest you look at the unedited version online, where my emotional states don’t seem to change so arbitrarily,” said Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last night, his first show since exclaiming, “You’re insane!” at Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday. Stewart, of course, said more about the state of the media, on bias and sensationalism, with the “insane” quip coming out as his soundbitiest soundbite, and that’s precisely why he wants everyone to watch the full chat, which can be seen here. But that’s not all!

Stewart also wants his audience to know that the Fox News editing was not exactly in his favor, and oh, they cut out the best part.

“I think we’re the counterweight,” Wallace admits to Stewart about Fox News. “I think that they have a liberal agenda,” Wallace says of NBC, “and I think we tell the other side of the story.”

“As you know,” Stewart says, “news only comes in two sides.”
