Jon Stewart Calls ‘Fox News Sunday’ Host Chris Wallace ‘Insane’
‘Daily Show’ host Jon Stewart got into a heated – but surprisingly civil – exchange of words with ‘Fox News Sunday’ host Chris Wallace over the weekend, in which the two debated everything from bias in the mainstream media to whether or not Stewart has a political agenda on his show.
The most buzz-worthy moment occurred when Wallace accused a ‘Daily Show’ segment of trying to make a political comment by comparing Sarah Palin’s bus tour commercial to an ad for genital herpes. To which Stewart said, “You really think that’s a political comment? … You’re insane. Here’s the difference between you and I. I’m a comedian first … I’m not an activist.”
Stewart and Wallace also debated the alleged bias of The New York Times, and whether any of the Republican candidates for president have any potential. (His answer? Not yet.)
