Jon Stewart visited the set of The O'Reilly Factor and the two squared off on whether Jon has any "Obama remorse" to which Stewart responded that “I agree with the sentiment that he ran as a visionary, and he’s led as a functionary.” The one part of this interview that I would consider interesting is that Stewart got a chance to tell someone on Fox just how extreme their network has become and even though he didn't say his name, it was pretty clear Jon Stewart was talking about Glenn Beck when he made this statement.

I wouldn't say brighter ... You've been overtaken by a more extreme version of you. You're like Fox 1.0. You're the beta version. Fox 2.0 has jumped over you to an extent that I don't think you could ever dream of, and, frankly, I think you fear. I think deep down inside you can't believe what you've unleashed.

Stewart might be giving O'Reilly too much credit, but he definitely has been out-crazied by a good deal of his counterparts on Fox "News" with Glenn Beck leading that train right over a cliff.
