Jon Stewart Calls Out Bill O'Reilly: 'No One's Watching Him For The Actual Truth'

Bill O'Reilly's ongoing feud with the media about whether he misrepresented his wartime reporting is sad, if not fodder for comedy.

Jon Stewart once again ripped the Fox News host's sense of integrity Tuesday night, but he also wagged a finger at the media for focusing its coverage on the smaller, personal details of the fight.

"Misrepresenting ‘The Zone’ he’s in is kind of his hook," Stewart said. "'You’re in the No Spin Zone' are the words he utters right before throwing to some jackass who disproves global warming by wandering around Boston, pointing at snow."

Stewart played clips of O'Reilly saying that Mother Jones -- which has been casting doubt on O'Reilly's reporting in "a war zone in Argentina" -- is at the "bottom rung of journalism in America."

That said, Stewart seems to think that counter-coverage of O'Reilly's claims has been pretty immature.

"No one's watching him for the actual truth," Stewart said, adding that everyone should just "move on."
