The only people who didn't already know this are people who are FOX News viewers and believe that FOX News is exactly what it claims to be.

FOX News has a much larger conservative agenda than most of the other major news outlets have a liberal one. It's as if they single-handledly are trying to balance out all of the other perceived liberal bias from everyone else.

Crackr: Again what matters is the data, not the source. Find a flaw in that and we have something to talk about. It came from George Soros is not an argument.

Stewart plays his game of bouncing back and forth between wanting to be seen as legit and claiming to be a comedian. Nothing is funny about someone that makes claims based on false info, and then when he's caught lying retreats to "But it's just comedy" excuse, It's two-faced.

I actually agree with that, in the instances it happens.

Actually Mike Huckabee was a pundit by the time Stewart invited him on his show.

Cajun247: Even if the 'Daily Show' has had conservatives on with Stewart it does not refute the bias evident in that e-mail.

Also Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Laura Bush, and Mike Huckabee are or have been politicians, That's different than being a pundit.

Splitting hairs maybe, but Stewart and his writers have no qualms about splitting hairs to make a joke, almost on a nightly basis.

... which clearly proves that Karzai is corrupt and useless.

Who would argue to pull the troops back, when people are called "short of memory", and the exit WILL result in terrorist attacks and more troops being killed?

It so much brain washing going on.

Is anyone in their right mind really watching / beleiving that poo????

I just visited foxnews.com to get a perspective of what Fox News is really about.

That is truely scary stuff!

The "news" they present are clearly heavily edited to fit their picture, the people interviewed are clearly picked to match their side of every story, and worst of all: The audience is being deliberately told (brain washed) what to think.

On the topic of whether USA should leave Afghanistan, O'Reilly has the following comments:
(Ralph Peters:) "Obama wants to keep a lid on Afghanistan no matter how many soliders are killed *CUT*"
John Hockenberry says the Taliban is not attacking US soil (which is true), where after O'Reilly
O'Reilly explains that Hockenberrys memory is very short, and that if USA leaves Afghanistan the Taliban WILL reenter Afghanistan and WILL start doing terrorist attacks again. What's to stop them? Well obviously the new Afghan government. But alas, the president Karzai is a "certified morron&q

Crakrjak. Clearly I didnt read your comment properly or watch the clip, cos I didnt agree with you. Sorry, let me re-phrase my comment, the right IS funny, fox news is the biggest and longest running joke around. I'm not a Republican or a Democrat, I'm Australian! but I do have the ability to call a spade a spade!

...and if you're going discredit St. Petersburg Times for being liberal than I might as well ignore anything from the Media Research Center a proudly conservative group.

Mike Huckabee.

First and foremost: yes Jon Stewart IS a comedian.

Secondly he uses his wit to criticize corporate news outlets EVERY time they spew the BS they do on a daily basis.

Thirdly apparently Jon Stewart's producer is having memory problems because they have booked conservative politicians/pundits before i.e. Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Laura Bush. Then again she just has a beef with Steven Crowder in particular.

[quote">and then when he's caught lying retreats to "But it's just comedy" excuse[/quote">

When has that ever happened?

[quote">"we never book conservative pundits." [/quote">

You later proved yourself wrong by then writing:

[quote">The only reason O'Reilly was ever invited is because Stewart made a deal with O'Reilly to go on his show as well.[/quote">

Lastly, in response to 5Cats comment the same group has more dirt on Fox News.

xiquiripat: When an organization like worldpublicopinion.org, tries to cloak itself in legitimacy while at the same time not revealing who founded and funds it, That is telling.

Everyone knows Murdoch owns Fox news, Most people do not know the extent of Soros' tendrils into many web based organizations.

Stewart plays his game of bouncing back and forth between wanting to be seen as legit and claiming to be a comedian. Nothing is funny about someone that makes claims based on false info, and then when he's caught lying retreats to "But it's just comedy" excuse, It's two-faced.

If Fox really is fair and balanced why do they put so much effort into telling people they are? If they were truly fair and balanced their reputation would speak for itself.

@Crakrjak: I'll repeat what I said to you last night.

Crackrjak: Just because information comes from somebody who has an interest in it doesn't automatically invalidate the data. So it's funded by Soros. So what? To disprove it you have to do a little bit more than that like pointing out a methodological flaw in the study itself. Using your logic it would be akin to saying that whatever Fox says is false...because it comes from Fox which is a stupid argument. You know who else owns a lot of media outlets? Rupert Murdoch.

And again. Jon Stewart is not the one with the "fair and balanced" tagline. The difference between Stewart and Fox is that Stewart makes jokes about news and Fox turns news into a joke.

I like JS. He always catches the hypocrisy of others and plays them for the joke that hypocrpites can be.

Tekinette: Also the poll you are referencing was conducted by worldpublicopinion.org, which is a George Soros front group.

Soros is a liberal that owns over 30 media groups and consistently manipulates polls and studies for the left.

Quit drinking the kool-aid and do a little research, you'll find that Soros funds a lot of smear campaigns and misleading polls against conservatives.

Tekinette: The only reason O'Reilly was ever invited is because Stewart made a deal with O'Reilly to go on his show as well.

His producer spilled the beans, She blacklists conservatives. Just because Jon can make funny faces doesn't counter the bias he knows to exist in his own damn show.

@CrakrJak Doesn't make much sense since they did invite conservative pundits, even O'Reilly lol but most of the time they invite people that wrote books about interesting subjects.. Anyways it's a comedy show, sadly it does give more news than some real news shows but still, it's goofy.
