Oh, for Fox Sake

Chris Wallace interviewed Jon Stewart on Fox News and there seemed to be some confusion about what the truth was. Here Jon Stewart gives context on Chris Wallace setting the record straight about his interview with Jon by retracting the truth.

Editors Note: Jon brilliantly identifies the narrative methodology of Fox News, which generally claims that the media has been taken over by liberal ideologues. Of course we hear the same from the liberals, claiming that the media has been taken over by conservative ideologues. Chris Wallace claims Jon Stewart likes to make fun of conservatives; and only makes fun of liberals to maintain credibility for attacking conservatives. Is that really true? Or only true from the perspective of those apparently committed to their own narrative?

Jon Stewart: "See the game. I make fun of conservatives or republicans because I'm a liberal partisan ideologue, I make fun of liberals or democrats because I want, as part of my brilliant yet cynical strategy, to maintain enough credibility to continue making fun of conservatives and republicans. And that narrative of conservative victimization is the true genius of what fox news has accomplished. Any editorial judgment in news or schools or movies that doesn't favor the conservative view is elitism and is evidence of liberal bias. Whereas any editorial judgment that favors the conservative view is evidence merely of fairness and done to protect them from liberal bias. And if you criticize Fox for this game, guess what that's evidence of..., how right they are about how persecuted (they are). ... They can't lose."
