Fox News Channel’s biggest host can’t help responding to his critics. So Bill O’Reilly enlisted Bernie Goldberg to act as his surrogate and respond to Jon Stewart’s recent criticism of Fox News.
Alas, the tit for tat worked out significantly better for Stewart than Goldberg, who once again wound up looking like a pompous, ill-informed windbag.
Stewart also had the line of the week, if not the year, regarding his role as a satirist of TV news and one of the more articulate critics of its excesses.
“I have not moved out of the comedian’s box into the news box,” Stewart said. “The news
box is moving towards me.”
It’s further proof that the media can’t resist a fight, even when it’s one that makes them look like imbeciles.
