Jon Stewart appears on the O'Reilly Factor and takes on Fox News (Video & partial transcript)

VIDEO: Bill O'Reilly VS Jon Stewart (Wednesday February 4, 2010)

JON STEWART: You have in some ways become the voice of sanity here which is like being the thinnest kid at Fat camp. So lets just get that straight.

This is what Fox has done through their cyclonic, perpetual emotion machine that is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week - they've taken reasonable concerns about this President and this economy and have turned it into a full fledged panic attack about the next coming of Chairman Mao. Explain to me why that’s the narrative of your network?

BILL O'REILLY: Its the narrative of a couple of guys. A Republican, Sean Hannity. And a guy Glenn Beck who's basically "everyman"... it means he doesn't shill for any party. He just spouts. He spouts what he believes. if you think Beck shills for the Republican Party you're out of your mind.
