No one should be surprised by this:
Jon Stewart has become the latest victim of Fox News editing. All of criticism of Fox News during his debate will Bill O’Reilly was edited out of the video played on Fox and Friends today.
You can watch the video segments at the link above or you can read the transcript of what Fox left out.
Here’s the summary so nicely put-
Jon Stewart went on Fox News to have a debate about Common’s appearance at the White House, and found when the debate was discussed later on the network, his criticisms of Fox News got left on the cutting room floor. This is exactly why I thought it was good for ratings, but a bad idea for Jon Stewart to debate O’Reilly on Fox News.
Fox selectively edited Stewart, and is now using him as token opposition to push their phony Common controversy. If anyone should know that a guest is not going to get a fair shake on Fox News, it’s Jon Stewart. He covers their bias on a nightly basis.
Jon Stewart did do a great job in the debate, but leave it to Fox News to cut out his excellent points about the Fox outrage machine. After all, FNC viewers need to be kept in the dark. Truth is something that is shaped by partisanship and Roger Ailes fingertips.
Stewart smoked O’Reilly, but if you watched the Fox and Friends report, you would come away thinking that Stewart was a weak liberal who was defending a cop killer supporter. Stewart has now become a victim of very bias that he rails against every night on The Daily Show.
Congratulations, Jon Stewart. You’ve been Foxed.
Fox- home of the liars.
