Jon Stewart is too nice to Bill O'Reilly

9:17 am - 02/04/2010
part 1

part 2 (the first 2:30 minutes are Jon, the last part is Dennis Miller commenting on him and some woman commenting on their body language? wtf)

highlights for the TL;DW crowd:
-Bill doesn't understand what the word "mechanism" means.
-he sounds like a condescending grandfather.
-Jon thinks Obama's flaw is that he allows too much discussion on important decisions, needs to use more of his executive power.
-Jon has more journalistic integrity on his "fake" news show than Bill does because he's not afraid to go after stupidity on both sides of the aisle.
-Jon says Bill is the most reasonable voice at Fox... which is "like being the thinnest kid at fat camp."

holy editing fail, i wonder what the uncut interview looked like. apparently they will be airing the rest of the interview tonight.

I heard on the news this morning that O'Reilley cut Stewart off. Is that true?

yeah, but he said they're airing the rest of the interview tonight.

you go Jon.

what the fuck was the commentary of their body language for?!
roboplege 4th-Feb-2010 03:23 pm (UTC)
I'm beginning to wonder if Fox has a absurdity quota it needs to fill.

I honestly had a hard time watching this; Bill-O is so fucking disrespectful, telling Jon that people don't think he's smart (bullshit) and that he's not important to anyone, hell, even the way he said his name was rude. Just because you don't like or agree with the man doesn't mean you have to be such a fucking dick about it. I find Bill so disgusting, but Jon is a class act. I do wish he'd gotten more Crossfire on Bill's ass, but at least he didn't stoop to Bill's level and engage in a shouting match, ala Bill and Geraldo.

lol'd heartily at the Geroldo memory. But yeah, I agree.

Arg, I know, everytime Jon was trying to make a damn valid point or defend himself, Bill was all, "NO NO NO LOGIC NO DO NOT WANT!"
iamashamed 4th-Feb-2010 03:31 pm (UTC)
"I mean, you being important in any context is scary" wtf Bill, wtf?! "Well, I think my family loves me" was an A+ responds.

I'll be here over in the corner stanning and mumbeling grumpily.

I'm so glad you posted this, I was almost going to:)
iamashamed 4th-Feb-2010 03:35 pm (UTC)
wow, loook at me spamming.

Jon needs to go on Glen Beck.
iamashamed 4th-Feb-2010 03:58 pm (UTC)
I agree.

Jon interrupts his guests all the time too but at least the full interviews are put up on the TDS website. The editing made me curious as to what was left out.

It's futile though, to argue with someone who believes that the regular news portions and majority of opinion shows on FOX are fair and balanced.

O'Reilly is one of the most principled people Miller has ever met? How bad do you feel right now if you're one of Miller's friends?

I loved how Jon totally kept his cool, even when O'Reilly was gearing up to start screaming his head off, and how he disarmed him with the stage-flinch and going to the audience to pull them in with his Thumbs of Power.
iamashamed 4th-Feb-2010 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thumbs of Power.

He called O'Reilley reasonable?

Why do they even let O'Reilly conduct interviews? He's terrible at it. Does he really think screaming his opinion is going to make the other person put his hands up in surrender and go, "You know what? You're right!" Does he really think being purposefully disrespectful and insulting makes him seem like a professional? He tries to cut his guests down in such transparent ways. He just sounds threatened.

Even when he's interviewing someone who would like to agree with him, he always goes about it in a way that makes his agenda completely obvious. Come on, O'Reilly, even when someone agrees with you, he/she is going to resent it if you put words in his/her mouth. And please, please stop taking everything as a personal offense. If you didn't look ridiculous during the interview, your butthurt little "And I looked stupid" would have taken it straight over the line.

God it was soooo cut up, there are definitely a couple counter-arguments it looked like jstew was gonna get into that got cut out preemptively so I'm sort of disappointed about that.

Bill O was a condescending douche like usual, so...y'know...there's that

This has made me realize that I need a jstew icon

Also lol'd heartily at, "Glenn Beck is an every man, he goes after everyone" or w/e it is he said.
peacetrains 4th-Feb-2010 09:24 pm (UTC)
haha, i like how when Jon was like "WTF do you mean he's every man?" he basically admitted that it's because he doesn't know what he's talking about and he just gets up there and spews shit.
bnmc2005 4th-Feb-2010 04:41 pm (UTC)
I wish jon would have made a deal that the interview had to be taped by two companies, and/or the Daily Show would have access to and rights over the complete footage. So when they cut it up into bits, the Daily Show could show the total clip.
