Jon Stewart On ‘O’Reilly’ (2/3/10)

Daily Show host Jon Stewart will enter the “No Spin Zone” tomorrow night when he sits down for an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. The sit down will air over two nights, tomorrow and Thursday.

This isn’t the first time the two hosts have squared off. Most recently when O’Reilly went on the Daily Show right after the election of President Obama. Click HERE to watch it.

Stewart most recently went after Fox News for its handling of President Obama’s Q&A session with congressional Republicans. While other networks aired the stunning exchange in its entirety, Fox News did not. Stewart believes that’s because Obama’s answers did not square with Fox’s conservative narrative.

Joe Klein Tells O’Reilly: ‘Glenn Beck Is Peddling A Lot Of Hateful Crap’

Think Progress- By Ben Armbruster at 1:00 pm

Last night on Fox News’ The Factor, host Bill O’Reilly asked Time Magazine’s Joe Klein to comment on a recent poll showing that Americans trust Fox News more than all other television news networks. “I don’t place all that much faith in many polls,” Klein said. After O’Reilly boasted about Fox’s ratings, Klein noted that there are some Fox journalists “who actually bring you the news,” but then went on to note that Fox also has more incendiary and “hateful” voices, like Glenn Beck, whom O’Reilly defended as “funny”:

KLEIN: I think that your pal Glenn Beck is peddling a lot of hateful crap. I mean, you know —

O’REILLY: But he’s funny. He’s doing it in a funny way. What’s hateful about it? [...] Look, he is every man sitting on a bar stool. Why shouldn’t every man have a show?

KLEIN: No, no, no. He’s Father Coughlin trying to delude and entertain the American [people].

O’REILLY: Oh, that’s such bull.

“I don’t think he’s a threat to the union,” Klein later added. “The union has always been too strong for nutters like Glenn Beck.”

Watch it:

Just last night on his Fox News program, Beck aired a clip from his “Bold & Fresh” tour with O’Reilly in which he displayed his vaunted humor by mocking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

BECK: Nancy Pelosi I swear does anybody else think that Nancy Pelosi is beginning to look a little like Skeletor? [...] Is it just me? Am I remembering her more fondly or has she had like massive plastic surgery lately? And every time she blinks it’s getting so stretched and I feel like it must hurt when she blinks. “Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow.”

Watch it:

O’Reilly must think that’s really funny.

What’s it like to be a woman serving in the Israeli occupation force in the West Bank? Is a woman’s experience as an occupier any different than a man’s? Yes indeed, say some women who have just broken their silence and offered a glimpse into the grim reality of the occupation.
