Jon Stewart Exposes Fox News ‘Balance,’ Goes After Sarah Palin And Megyn Kelly (VIDEO)

Huff Post- First Posted: 03- 4-10 06:12 AM   |   Updated: 03- 4-10 07:55 AM

It looked like Jon Stewart was going for some of his bread-and-butter Sarah Palin jokes on Wednesday night, mocking her appearance on NBC’s Tonight Show and tossing in a little ribbing of Jay Leno.

But the quips about a Palin “Fair and Balanced” remark quickly turned into an amusing — if not scathing — indictment of Fox News programming, particularly host Megyn Kelly and her new mid-day program, America Live.

Stewart hounded the network about an apparent lack of balance, ranging from the show’s promos (showing a clean-cut man in a Jesus t-shirt evidently representing the right, juxtaposed with an “angry nose-ring liberal lady” pointing at his face) to the actual reporting and clips that only showed one-sided opinions from a very homogeneous group. He emphasized that this was one of the few programs held during the network’s allotted news time, as opposed to shows that are explicitly opinion.

The Daily Show segment ended with a flourish, showing clips that seemed to indicate an inconsistent approach at Fox News to polling, endorsing or dismissing polls depending on the results.

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.
