Bill O'Reilly Is Now Busy Defending Jon Stewart To Megyn Kelly

Bill O’Reilly was on Megyn Kelly today defending Jon Stewart.

Kelly — who has been the target of some of Stewart’s more epic excoriations — was indignant that O’Reilly had gone on Stewart’s show again: “Why do you go on there…you give him more airtime than he’d ever get!? You are making him a big star.”


For what it’s worth, O’Reilly had a more, er, professional?  Less crybaby-ish?  Dare we say, mostly fair and balanced, answer:

“Stewart is a guy who reaches an audience we don’t reach here: younger, liberal, hip…you reach an audience that may not be watching the Fox News channel…I want that lively, robust debate.”

Emphasis mine, because the candor is refreshing.  Also: Yes.
