    Jon Stewart's montage of conservative hypocrisy and inconsistency is a work of art. No wonder Fox News is freaking out over him, as apparently the Daily Show's constant needling has actually led to a drop in Fox News viewers.

    Does Sean Hannity even have a soul, or is he just this ideologically programmed robot?

    Are you sure it wasn't Murdoch's recent scandal that led to that drop in viewers?

    It was happening before that, and apparently one study suggested that it was Jon Stewart catching Fox in using the wrong footage, etc. and his constant needling of Fox talking heads. So much that Stewart was interviewed on Fox twice in a matter of days and pretty much verbally assaulted. He handled it with class and irony, as he usually does. But they aren't happy with him. And this video has already gone "viral."

    Oh please! Maybe you're just used to the Fox method of interviewing people when they disagree with them, but I guess I'm just not inoculated.

    Incidentally, much like the Eastern Bloc of old, they also censored part of the interview.

    It's been my observation that one's leanings color's the view of who is being unfairly attacked. Those who agree with me are right and if pushed that's the one being unfairly attacked!

    The same thing happens in internet debates. The one that I agree with makes great arguments and has put the other side to shame. The only problem is that the other side is too ignorant to realize this fact!

    I don't disagree, but these are television personalities who are supposed to have the objectivity to know better. At least by old school standards.

    Of course you disagree, that's what I was saying to begin with! I'm on the other side!

    I dont need a link to George Soros media matters. I have watched every interview he has been on at Fox News when it was live. He has never been verbally assaulted.

    Kind of like the Bishop refusing to look through Galileo's telescope.

    Incidentally, Media Matters is run by a former conservative and Republican operative.

    Yes, I know. It's a conspiracy!

    Woooooooo.

    Did you know that Soros is paying for the government's plot to alter the weather with chem trails from airplanes? And he runs a secret organizations which uses aborted babies in ritual sacrifice.

    It's a vicious circle man!

    Oh great. A David Horowitz project. Now there's an objective source!

    You did provide that link as a joke, right?

    I know, I know. Soros is the liberal overmaster. He's like the one rich guy who donates to liberal causes, so you try to paint him as the left equivalent of the Koch Brothers.

    I've seen the Glenn Beck flow charts, and I know Soros drives you crazy. A little bit of money you can't control.

    But I just wanted to make sure the link wasn't posted as a joke. I was chastised the last time I didn't pick up on it. But I guess you really did mean to post the Horowitz link as a serious source.

    Fox didn't need to verbally assault Soros on these particular occasions, as I recall they used to have Glenn Beck in charge of the Soros-bashing deparment.
