O'Reilly: Stewart 'Living In Fantasy Land' For Calling Out Fox Scandal Mongering

Fox's Bill O'Reilly was just begging for another smack down from Jon Stewart during his Talking Points Memo segment this Wednesday.

It looks like someone's got their knickers in a twist over being called out for their scandal mongering over at Fox. Bill-O was trolling for more attention from Jon Stewart during his Talking Points Memo this Wednesday night. He must be a glutton for punishment.

Here's how Fox covered the segment over at their blog: O’Reilly to Jon Stewart: ‘Are You Hearing Me Out There in Left-Wing Fantasy Land?’:

Bill O’Reilly today responded to Jon Stewart’s coverage of O’Reilly’s interview with President Barack Obama.

"The Factor" host said Stewart echoed Obama’s sentiments that the issues discussed in the interview have been thoroughly investigated. O’Reilly disagreed.

“There have been no cogent explanations about why the administration misled the world over Benghazi. There have been no arrests either in the terror killings there. Likewise with the IRS, no explanation about who was behind the targeting of conservative groups, even though the president vowed to find out. And finally, on ObamaCare, only 8 percent of people using the Affordable Health Care website – 8 percent – say it’s working well after all these months. Again, no explanation as to why that is,” O’Reilly said.

O’Reilly said that those issues aren’t important to the president or Stewart because they don’t pertain to social justice or global warming.

“So, if I ask about those issues, I’m a doofus, a scandal-monger,” O’Reilly said. “That’s the spin.”

“The O’Reilly Factor” host noted that there are serious charges that the administration lied about Libya because of elections. He said that if the IRS is abusing its power, every American, including Stewart, should be concerned.

“Are you hearing me out there in left-wing fantasy land?” O’Reilly asked. “Good grief.”
