Stewart on da’ Factor

It is customary to try to be polite to a guest even if you are asking tough questions. Bill O’Reilly didn’t even try. Then again, I would have been surprised if he had.

There are several interesting moments in this interview. First, O’Reilly suggests that only “dope heads” watch The Daily Show, which is true. I’m doing lines of blow on my computer right now before I go back and listen to another lecture at this trauma conference I’m attending in Boston. Secondly, Stewart mentions something that is really true, that on Fox, O’Reilly is the liberal. He is the closest thing to sanity on Fox. Is Hannity any better or worse? Beck is so much more right wing, more crazy, simply more out there than Bill. Bill O’Reilly has been left behind.
