This morning "The Daily Show's Jon Stewart entered the proverbial lion's den, appearing live [video highlights | 01:43] on Fox News Sunday to debate 'media bias' with host Chris Wallace." "The interview [video | 24:11] got off to a rousing start with Wallace almost immediately calling Stewart out for his criticism of the network and its brand of news coverage and went exactly where you'd expect it to from there."
"When challenged on how he develops his stinging – and persistent – satiric critiques of Fox, Stewart joked, 'It's actually quite easy when you feel it. You got to feel it in your soul, you know?'
But Stewart stood up for his Daily Show antics.
'Here is the difference between you and I,' he said, 'I'm a comedian first. My comedy is informed by an ideological background, there's no question about that.
'The thing that - in some respect - conservative activists will never understand is … I'm not an activist. I'm a comedian,' Stewart said."*
