(Newser) – It's been more than a week since debating Chris Wallace on Fox News, but Jon Stewart is still hounding the network. Wallace now says he wishes he'd told Stewart that Fox told "the full story" instead of "other side of the story," prompting an incredulous reaction from the Daily Show host, who accuses the network of playing the victim. "That narrative of conservative victimization is the true genius of what Fox News accomplishes," he said.

In Wallace's view, "I make fun of liberals or Democrats because I want to maintain enough credibility to make fun of conservatives and Republicans," Stewart said, while any pro-conservative bias at Fox is "evidence merely of fairness." Borrowing Wallace's own description of the current administration, Stewart calls the network "the biggest bunch of crybabies I have seen in my 30 years in Washington."
