In a recent GQ interview with The Daily Show host Jon Stewart, he decided to finally admit something that would surely be a shock to his fans.
“I am a huge fan of Fox News – I confess!” Stewart said. “I may rib them every once in awhile, but truth be told, it’s out of affection and sheer admiration.”
“When it comes to no-nonsense, ‘tell it like it is’ journalism, you just can’t beat the award-winning team of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Mike Doocy, Neil Cavuto, Stuart Varney, etc. And I’ll let you in on a little secret – ol’ Stew Beef’s crushin’ on Gretchen Carlson! What a babe.”
Many have praised The Daily Show for exposing the devoutly conservative 24 hour news network for its blatant deception and poor journalism, but Stewart stands by what he says.
“To suggest that I have nothing but contempt for Fox News and their hard-hitting, honest reporting – well, that’s a deception worthy of an April Fool’s Day prank.”
