On The Daily Show Monday night, Jon Stewart said that Fox News host Chris Wallace “basically gives away the game” when he describes Fox News as a “counterweight” to NBC News.

“Because as we know, news only comes in two sides,” Stewart joked.

He had appeared on Fox News Sunday the previous day, where Wallace questioned him about media bias.

Wallace’s comment about Fox News being a “counterweight” to the “liberal” NBC News was not included in the edited version of the interview broadcast by the Fox News Channel.

Stewart suggested viewers watch the unedited version of the Fox News Sunday interview because in the edited version he looks like “a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.”
