Interviews

Stewart vs. O'Reilly, Unedited

Bill O’Reilly posted the unedited version of his interview with Jon Stewart so his viewers could see that the edited version was a “fair cut.” John Cook at Gawker writes, “If by ‘fair cut’ O'Reilly means ‘cut in a manner that left some of Stewart's best lines, most effective arguments, and most convincing evidence out of the interview and hidden from the broadcast audience,’ then he's absolutely right.” Best of all is when Stewart gets O’Reilly to admit that Barack Obama believes in “tyranny and socialism” and then wonders, “How many tyrants do you know that really suffer because they can’t get cloture?” His critique of Fox News was also significantly edited down, and the unedited version includes attacks on Gretchen Carlson and Neil Cavuto.
