The Huffington Post  |  Posted: Updated: 05/23/2012 7:49 am

Jon Stewart has interviewed some of the most influential people in news on "The Daily Show," but occasionally, the tables are turned and Stewart is the one in the interview chair.

Over the years, Stewart has joined programs on the likes of Fox News, CNN and MSNBC to debate and discuss the most prominent issues in media and politics. Sometimes things can get a little heated (insert "Crossfire" joke here) but in general, the discussions remain cordial despite any Stewart's constant mockery of cable news hosts.

Check out these 9 interviews with Jon Stewart on programs such as "The O'Reilly Factor," "The Rachel Maddow Show" and "Bill Moyers Journal" to see Stewart mix it up with some of the same journalists who in turn make "The Daily Show" so funny every night.
