Cram this down your throat

Republicans are undoubtedly winning the war of opinion in recent health care developments.  In that framework, Jon Stewart commits yet another biting tear on Fox News after his recent O'Reilly interview where Bill claimed Fox was a balanced news program:

O'REILLY: ... And somebody told me off the record that you were one of the 49 percent, you believe Fox News is the most trusted news organization.

STEWART: I am. Here's what I believe. Fox News is the most passionate and sells the clearest narrative of any news organization, if that's how — are you still referring to it in that manner?

O'REILLY: Yes, it's a news organization. Right. That's how the poll referred to it.

STEWART: No, I'm sure it did.

O'REILLY: Nobody had any problem. Only you. Only you have a problem.

STEWART: I think Fox, in and of yourself, say you're not a news organization all day. Isn't it now your news — what was it your news from 9 to 11, and then your opinion and then your news again from like 1 to 2:30?

O'REILLY: It's kind of like a newspaper.

(From Fox's transcript.)

Here's Stewart's response (if that link breaks try the slightly longer version on comedycentral.com for when Hulu stops hosting it).
