Jon Stewart on His Fox News Interview: Why'd They Edit Out the Part Where Chris Wallace Admits Fox Isn't "Fair & Balanced"?

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a few minutes to discuss his recent interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace. Stewart urged his viewers to watch the full interview online (which you can and should do here), not only because the version that got edited down for TV made him seem a bit emotionally all-over-the-charts, but because it also leaves out one of the best parts of the interview -- the part when, as Stewart puts it, Wallace "basically gives away the game" and admits that Fox presents a one-sided version of the news.
