Jon Stewart strikes back at 'Fox News Sunday' interview

June 21, 2011 at 10:46 AM ET

You don't have to be a big-time TV producer to know what's going to lead off "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" the day after the funnyman appears on "Fox News Sunday." It will be ... a rebuttal.

That said, Stewart's real complaint with the final interview wasn't the content but the editing.

"I suggest you look at the unedited version online, where my emotional states don't seem to change so arbitrarily," Stewart told viewers.

(The full, unedited interview can be found here.)

"The arguments are a little clearer and less like a scene from 'Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,'" he added.

Stewart also noted that a key comment from interviewer Chris Wallace was left out of the Fox-edited piece. In that comment, Wallace noted: "I think that (NBC News has) a liberal agenda, and we tell the other side of the story."

"Because as you know, news only comes in two sides," quipped Stewart.
