      If Fox is seriously thinking of taking on Jon Stewart, it's going to be an uneven contest.

      These guys are soooooooo clueless.

        This is how FoxPAC operates. They bring in a young nutjob to counter the "Comedian" John Stewart. Once again, conservatives are the victims in all of this.

        Fox will win in Stewart vs Fox. Their viewers are so dumb down that all Fox has to do is destroy his character with anything they want and the Fox drones will never believe a word he says. Oh wait, they've already done this.

        Stewart would have to have God himself sitting next to him agreeing with him and the Fox believers would STILL not believe it was true.. or even really God sitting there.

          It doesn't matter, what Fox viewer was listening to Jon Stewart in the first place? Stewart won the debate without their even realizing it, because this whole clip just proved his point that conservatives victimize themselves (rightly or wrongly) with the liberal media bias argument constantly.

      These people at Fox know that Stewart did them a lot of damage last Sunday, why else woud they spend a week trying to deconstruct him and turn him into a partisan hack? Fox News is a house of cards for those willing to take the time to blow them down.

      Jon Stewart is a comedian that points out the obvious, something the MSM has no desire to do for whatever reason, and what he peels back is pretty disgusting. If the MSM did its' job Stewart would be out of work over night.

          Why can't Doocy and that other guy comment on Jon Stewart directly?

          Why did they only play the part of Stewart's Herman Cain joke without the context of Herman Cain saying he won't read bills more then three pages long?

          What do they hope to accomplish by whining and protesting about this interview more then a week later?

          Why were they complaining about the lack of conservative pundits on Jon's comedy and interview show when those pundits get to say what they want everyday for hours on their own forums?

          Who are they to tell Jon Stewart how to run his political satire program?

          Those are the questions I found myself asking after watching this transparent piece of damage control and spin.

      BTW Crowder - Politifact hit Stewart with a 'false' on a nuanced choice of words, not necessarily because polls don't show Fox viewers as misinformed. He mis-spoke, he's not peddling information regardless of its accuracy.

      Funny - I just realized Fox is bringing out 'comedians and Fox News contributors' to respond to Stewart. It's a pretty lame stunt, because at the end of the day they are all coming from Fox "News"

      BTW - it seems Crowder was referring more to BillO (Bully, pushes forth inaccurate information) than Stewart. A Bully picks on people smaller or weaker then he or she is: Fox News is MUCH larger and stronger that TDS/Stewart. Ever since Stewart left Wallace's show last week, FNC has been "picking on" Stewart. Who's the bully?

        Only the most dim-witted Fox drone would believe that Stewart is a bully. Certainly no one who has ever watched his show would think so. I guess by Fox logic, anyone who wins an argument using logic must be a bully and anyone who wins by volume and intimidation (like Bill-O) must just be right.

          I agree, but I think Politifact tends to miss the forest for the trees sometimes (as happened in this case). They focus so much on someone's exact wording, that they fail to recognize the point of the statement. I've felt this way on many of their rulings on both Democrats and Republicans. Stewart said Fox viewers are consistently the most uninformed media viewers. Research polls show that Fox viewers are consistently near the bottom (though not necessarily at the bottom--and many polls do put them at the bottom). Stewart said all/ always, polls show most/almost always. That's "False?"

              And to be clear, the prefix mis in misinformed is the same as that in misspoke, which is to say it roughly means 'wrong'. Uninformed they are not, but the information they have is wrong. Ill-informed would be another accurate way to describe the quality of the information presented by the fecal news channel and swallowed as absolute Gospel (no offense to the Gospels intended, nor to those of us who believe them) by their viewers.

              To me, in a nutshell, fecal extrudes exactly what they have figured out its viewers already believe, and its viewers tune in because they are being validated in their beliefs by a cable tabloid which has their number.

              Moreover, I don't want organizations like Politifact to try and suss out the meaning. I want them to examine the words actually used and report from there. The words used are important and there is much to much relying on "yeah, but you know what I meant" in our debates.

              You're point of missing the forest for the trees is well taken, but I think that conclusion should be on my end.

                You make a good point. And I do apologize for missing the quote--Stewart did indeed say misinformed. However, in this case I agree with the flood of people who disagree with Politifact. Though I wouldn't have rated Stewart true, I do think he was much more right than wrong. I would probably have been happy with "Half True" because that would leave them plenty of room for not every research poll showing that every Fox viewer is the most misinformed. I find it funny that they rated his quote "False" and then in the explanation, showed that he was mostly right. I respect your argument, pecst1, but in this case I do think we know what he meant.

          Agreed, absolutely tman (Tin Man?). I'm not trying to label PolitiFact as a biased, 4sure. If one takes Stewart's words at face value, like PF did, then PF is correct: Stewart's complete quote is not 'true'. The forest-through-the-trees analogy is correct, and now Fox is taking PF's nuanced response and simply saying "Stewart is full of sh1t" because they (FN) knows the vast majority of polls indicate FNC viewers are the most ill-informed/mis-informed buch of viewers

      I read something the other day (I'd seen it before), which makes me chuckle in this context. Research seems to show that once a claim is strongly made, even if it's false, the rebuttals tend to solidify the validity of that claim in most peoples minds, even those who agree with the rebuttals. That has been the strength of the ever-attacking Reich Whinge and Fux Noise. Now, however, the shoe is on the other foot. They are reacting to the absolutely true misinformation claim by Jon Stewart, and the more they kick and scream about it, the more credibility it gets.

      For the record, Jon Stewart isn't letting this go either. He's had a segment about this on almost every show since the interview and on his last couple of shows (including last night) he's really lit into them. Isn't it great when someone as funny as Jon Stewart can actually just sit back and let Fox write his comedy for him? All he has to do is deliver it. I love it when the Fox machine tries to take him on. Not only does it make his show even better, Fox always seems to unwittingly reinforce Stewart's points.

          "The Emperor has no clothes"

          A perfect analogy as we just get done witnessing Howard Kurtz invite the Baltimore Sun television critic with a vendetta against Jon Stewart on his show to angrily rant about how bad Jon Stewart is.

          Like this Fox and Friends segment with Crowder, the CNN reliable sources segment addressed nothing substantive. We can't tall you why what Jon Stewart is doing is wrong, but our feathers have been ruffled and we aren't happy!

          Yes, it would appear that the cable news juggernaut has all of it's colleagues and competitors once again rushing to pretend that they aren't a blight on modern journalism, that they aren't just a propaganda outlet for the GOP leadership and bank-rollers.

      Well, to be concise, FOX is generally at the bottom of polls for informed viewers. Politifact is very literallist. Stewart said they are consitently at teh bottom, when the reality is they are NEAR the bottom.

      Also, Stewart later pointed out how FOX was a main source of the "Lie of the Year" in 2009 and 2010. Stewart also pointed ou how FOX earned so many "false" or "pants on fire" ratings from Politifact.

      Stewart is a bully? Hanity, Rove, Beck, O'Riley and let us not foget their guests like Ann Coulter, M Savage, Sarah Palin etc...are all bullies. they are also too afraid to appear outside the scripted news of FOX.

        No they have finished dead last in every poll apart from one - which didn't actually even measure the same thing and used a very shaky methodology.

      Got news for you, Crowder. If it's true it's not propaganda. Propaganda by its very nature is false. You should know this, as you are here appearing on the Fox Propaganda network.

      If you have evidence that the entire mainstream media lean left, please present it. That myth has become a laughingstock.

      He knew he could win against Wallace because he had facts on his side, and you guys on Fox are still upset that somebody pointed out how big a liar Fox really is, and what a lousy job Fox does telling the truth.

      Doocy: Here is an example of Jon Stewart's "bias".
      Take a look at how he mocks Herman Cain.


      Kilmeade: Herman Cain did not like that ad.....



      ROFLMAO @ Doocy using a comedy bit as "an example of bias"
      For crying out loud, Hermman Cain is a walking, talking comedic material producing machine!
      Every time he opens his mouth and speaks, he pours out fodder for comedians across the nation!

      I am not surprised that Kilmeade is still unable to distinguish between a comedy bit, which ribs a politician for his ridiculous words, -and "an ad".

      As for this Steven Crowder person, well, I have never heard of him and I live in NW Ohio, about an hour from Grand Rapids Michigan.
      But, then again, I do not watch the Fox Noise Circus and most "conservative" comedians are not funny or entertaining, so it is not surprising really that he is not known to me.

      I did however find humor in his closing statement to his F&F colleagues:
      "Thank You. You look great"

      I am left wondering about the full context of that email to his manager that he came touting.
      The context of it was never introduced into the discussion of it.
      Was it a rejection email about a request from Steven Crowder, Fox News Contributor, to appear on The Daily Show?

      I'd wish they would have looked into how unfair it was for Fox and ABC to go after Michelle Bachmann. Wallace calls her a 'flake' and then Stephanopolis suggests it's probable that media will launch an investigation of her 23 foster children.

                Actually, the idea of Bachmann as "stupid" raises an interesting point. Supporters are talking about her achievements as a lawyer, the suggestion being she's intelligent.

                Let's run with that. Stupid people can at least figure out how to take advice from others. But an intelligent person who makes wildly inaccurate and outlandish comments must be a victim of some sort of mental problem, which is far more dangerous.

                So let them say she's smart. That just means she misinterprets the Constitution because she feels an emotional need to twist the intent of our Founding Fathers. Game, set, match.

              For one thing, there's absolutely nothing about "flake" that's gender-specific, so please explain how it's "demean(ing) a woman". I suppose you're going to argue that the society-engineering, politically correct, pro-equality liberals are threatened by a successful woman.

            I think we also see this a lot on this website when we have our more conservative friends who throw up a link, without reading it first, to try and reinforce something that they've just stated, when in reality, the link they post up totally refutes what they're saying.

            If we all had a dime for everytime that happened on here, we'd be pretty rich, and willing to pay a little extra income tax.

            Of course Stephanopoulos didn't say anything about the media investigating her 23 children, but in order to make the media look "mean" towards Bachmann, they have to rewrite the interview to make it look that way.

        Thank you. You just proved Stewart's point. It doesn't matter what was actually said, it matters how you want to frame it.

        Stephanopoulos: Finally oneā€”one final question. I think one of the most impressive things that people find in your background is the fact that you and your husband have helped raise 23 foster children and I know you want to shield them but are they prepared and are you prepared for the loss of privacy that comes with the president campaign? And is that something you are concerned about for them?

        Bachmann: Well when we were making this momentous decision we sat down for a long time as a family and contemplated what this was meaning and yes, we are ready. We have five wonderful biological children. Our last one is off to college our oldest one is a doctor. And then we had great ā€“ a great 23 foster children in our home as well. And as you can imagine and appreciate weā€™ve tried to keep a good handle on their privacy and we will do that, we will respect their privacy

        Amazing that you see that as a threat. I know you just read the Fox headline and repeated the lie, but it still doesn't make it true. The world is a big and scary place but your conspiracy theories and bad faith won't help you understand it.

            That still cracks me up, I saw PlowedKKKon have that explained several times, and the response is " Oh yeah ? I made a stupid mistake ? I'll show you, I'll make it my screen name!!"

            Sort of like Fairliberal ( may be the same person), whose screen name is a perpetual reminder that she started out as a very unsuccessful concern troll. Every post had a tag that said "I am a liar.".

        Foster children are not Bachmann's biological children . .

        The State paid Ms. Bachmann to care for the foster children and the American people have every right to know the outcome of her "taxpayer funded fostering" . .

        Children's privacy is always protected. The true identities of these 23 kidz will not be revealed, just the facts, children will be identified as Child #1, Child #2, Child #3, etc.

        Just the facts and outcome of investigation . .

      It seems typical of Fox television that they would have a guest on, and put "COMEDIAN" on the screen beneath his face, yet he not only wasn't funny in the least, he didn't even try.

      He had what must have been two minutes of prime opportunity to make a joke or a crack or deliver a zinger or even make a funny face and maybe a funny voice...

      Well, unless you consider a whining crying voice to be funny, which isn't if that's the person's actual speaking voice, which I think it is in this guy's case.

      Why did they put "COMEDIAN" on the screen beneath this guy's face, where was the humor?


      NEWS FLASH: Fox television accuses Jon Stewart of not truly being a comedian, by having a COMEDIAN on who apparently isn't a comedian either, who not only wasn't funny in the least, he didn't even try.

      True to form for FOX NEWS, the clip from Jon's show last night was selectively edited in an attempt to change the point Jon was making.

      Roger Ailes and his cadre of cowards at FOX NEWS don't have the balls to show the entire bit from last night and by doing so, it actually proves the points he was making.

      Fox is doing what they do here. However, they have terrible memories. They went after Letterman awhile back, and really accomplished nothing. They've gone after SNL & Tina Fey, and Janeane Garofalo with pretty much the same results. Now they're trying to take down Jon Stewart. They can't. Stewart and his audience are too smart and Fox News viewers are not huge "Daily Show" viewers anyway. Or, as in the case of The Colbert Report", if they do watch, they don't understand the central joke and get everything wrong. It must be incredibly frustrating for Ailes and company, however, that they can be so easily thwarted by comedians (shout out to my fellow fooles!). Remember in the old days, Fox News used to have comedians on as guests fairly frequently. Janeane, Bill Maher, even Al Franken would appear on their shows. However, they have come to the realization that comedians, in general, are too smart to be influenced by their b.s. This has lead to a reduction in comedians to the point where the only ones they'll have on any more (who aren't Larry the Cable Guy or Fox's own paid, unfunny, shills Dennis Miller or Greg Gutfield) are Bill Maher or Jon Stewart...and that's on rare occasions. And, usually, Maher or Stewart will school whoever's hosting them, and then they won't appear for awhile.

      I have said it before and I'll say it again...when Fox News finally falls, it will be a comedian that brings them down. Making fun of their ridiculous behavior is the one thing they cannot combat. Let's face it, it's been 8 days since the Stewart interview and they're still trying to salvage something there.

        Conservatives really don't get comedy, do they? Remember that study that found that conservatives were more likely to think that Stephen Colbert was funny because he was making fun of liberals? There's got to be some brain science about this somewhere.

      Jon Stewart is the HOST OF A COMEDY SHOW who apparently gets under the collective skin of a "news" organization like no one else can.

      If FOXPac was truly content with its own integrity and reputation, they wouldn't find necessary to spend a week and a half (so far) getting riled over criticism from the HOST OF A COMEDY SHOW.

      I totally agree!

      That bully Jon Stewart! I can't stand the way he comes onto our shows (where we have complete control) when he is invited and allows us to make baseless accusations about him! It's really scary when our hosts go onto his show and they have friendly banter and laugh about stuff. The manner in which he repeats our own words against us is the hallmark of bullying! Just the other day, he said that we climbed Mount Fib - have you ever heard such a cutting and dehumanizing remark?

      Really, how threatened are you by a comedian that you have to devote your news cycle to attacking him? Moreover, you do realize that everyone laughs at you when you do it right?

      To me this is sad; Fox has no respect for its own audience. How else could they put this guy on and have him criticize Stewart based on exactly what Stewart didn't say. The only way they would do this is if they just assume their audience is not smart enough to "get it". I couldn't listen past the first minute but what he was tryting to get at when pontificating on "Hollywood" was the exact opposite of what Stewart was saying. Because someones politics may be liberal does not make them an activist, I don't understand what is confusing about that. Many people who vote either Dem or Rep do not let that aspect about themselves affect anything about their lives other than what they do in the voting booth. The Fox News machine is solely meant to be activist and to sway by any means; that is why you get the propoganda and the mis-informed, not the ill-informed but the mis-informed.

      is this the brain trust of FOX? First of all, propaganda IS false. Second of all, what Stewart said was TRUE. So where does that leave this clown? In the dark. And didn't they introduce him as a comedian? FOX LIES!

        Not all propaganda is false. Propaganda is info intended to persuade the audience to believe the same as the person pushing the propaganda. It's often dishonest or misleading info, but it's not always false.

        Tonight Stewart showed clip after clip of himself making fun of democrats, doing stereotypical jewish voices, black voices and so on. All Democrats, all jokes, but would be considered racist if you took offense to it. Fox NEVER complained when he did any of this.

      So Stewart only picks fights he can win -like Fox people-.That's very telling,maybe he wins because he's right and they're idiots!
      Lastly Crowder forgot to put on his " Ƹ'm shocked look" when Stewart made fun of Cains ridiculous statement (also worth looking up Cains excuse for that one ( "It was a joke " ).He should be chastised for ridiculing himself then.
