Jon Stewart appeared this morning on "Fox News Sunday" for a spirited, and at times combative, interview. Host Chris Wallace spent much of it trying to pin Stewart down for his repeated criticism of Fox’s “bias,” asking the comedian repeatedly whether he thought the mainstream media — ABC, NBC, CBS, the New York Times, etc. — was itself biased.

Stewart yielded that the majority of people in the media “probably hold liberal beliefs,” but said the other networks and major newspapers aren’t “as relentlessly activist” as Fox. Rather, said Stewart, “the bias of the mainstream media is towards sensationalism, conflict, and laziness.”

WALLACE: You don’t think The New York Times is a liberal organization now pushing a liberal agenda?

STEWART: The New York Times? No. I think they are to a certain extent. Do I think they’re relentlessly activist? No. In a purely liberal partisan way? No, I don’t. I think this is — Fox is a very special.

Stewart also said Fox viewers are “consistently” the most “uninformed” news consumers.

At one point as Wallace continued to press his case, Stewart compared him and other Fox anchors to dupes inside a totalitarian state.

wow, Stewart doesn't think the NYT is liberal, and Fox is uninformed. There is a breaking news story

He didn't say that specifically. He said he does think NYT is overall liberal, but they don't push an agenda like FOX. The other statement was that in polls, FOX news watchers consistently come out as the least informed.

Then how does he know they are liberal? My guess? Probably because of their liberal agenda.

That's ok. I have no problem with media being liberal or conservative or whatever. It's just the pot calling the kettle black, Fox ain't that special.

Actually, wait a minute. He pretty much admits that overall the media has a liberal bias, but Fox is special? That just anti-fox bullshit.

Next up: where are all those fucking hippie assholes who protested Bush's wars, and what the fuck are they doing now?
