(Newser) – Jon Stewart made a discovery on last night's Daily Show: Fox News has turned into a big, fat liberal! As proof, Stewart showed a series of clips, including one of Bill O'Reilly praising conservative town hall protesters ("We don't describe the protesters as 'loons,'" he says) contrasted with a 2004 clip in which its talking heads called liberal protesters...“loons.” And it’s not just protesters they’ve flip-flopped on: “Liberals hate the president! And I think you’ll have to agree with me: No one is doing that more effectively than Fox.”

“Of course, we’re just having a little playful fun. Everyone knows the mainstream media is liberal. I mean, for Fox to actually be liberal, they’d have to be part of the mainstream, and one of the big dogs,” he continued, before showing clips of Fox personalities touting their strong ratings. “Welcome to liberalism, fuckos!” Stewart concluded. “See you guys at Sean Penn’s barbecue this weekend. We’re having tofu bourguignon. It’s French—and vegan!”
