Jon Stewart Interviews Fox News' Bret Baier: "Fox's Main Thrust [Isn't] Objective News Gathering"

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart interviewed Fox News host Bret Baier, and the two had a lively (and often quite funny) discussion about Fox's conservative bias and other issues.

"There's opinion shows and there's news shows. And we respect the viewers' ability to tell the difference between the two," Baier said at one point. Predictably, that was met with much laughter from the Daily Show audience -- and a bit from Stewart himself, who added later on in the interview, "I would not say that Fox's main thrust is objective news gathering....I don't think I'm alone in that, by the way."

The interview ran long for the broadcast, so watch it in three parts here:
