realworldism: October 12th (including Jon Stewart interviews Bill O'Reilly)

Okay, just a quicky today. but Jon Stewart talked to Bill O'Reilly. and damn, that ape comes across quite likeable. now, if only he would be as 'fair and balanced' (heck, he even criticizes the administration to some extent) in his own program as he was in this interview. watch it at the Comedy Central page.
Now, showing an incredibly nack for putting their own interests over the necessities of a current conflict, "Major Assaults on Hold Until After U.S. Vote". Make sure you understand what that means: we'll stop doing what is necessary to win this thing, in order to not hurt our chance of getting re-elected. That is incredible.
At the same time, "Bush Slams Kerry for Comments on Terror" even though Kerry's comments make a lot of sense. Remember, in a TV interview Bush said that you can never win the war on terror ("President admits war on terror cannot be won"). Only later to flip flop and say the opposite: "Bush Now Saying 'We Will Win' Terror War". Plus, Cheney himself has said that much of the success in the war on terror has been due to law enforcement (especially if you look at the rest of the world, where many countries have had great successes in their fight against terrorists by making arrests) on "Meet The Press".
Kerry's comment, by the way, stems from Brent Scowcroft, the national security adviser in the first Bush administration, who said the United States can break the back of terrorism "so that it is a horrible nuisance, and not a paralyzing influence." (read it here). Nevertheless, "Bush, Kerry Trade Charges Before Debate". Kerry's newest thing, quite rightfully: "Kerry Says Gas Prices Help Bush's Friends".
