Bill O’Reilly and Fox media analysts Howard Kurtz and Lauren Ashburn took on Jon Stewart‘s Hillary Clinton interview tonight. And none of them were terribly impressed, with Kurtz mocking the whole thing as a “kissy-face” interview.
Ashburn said Stewart lobbed softballs, but made the case (as Stewart has) that he’s a comedian so it’s not really his job to be tough. O’Reilly half-joked Stewart always asks him tough questions when he appears on The Daily Show, and when he and Kurtz agreed Stewart’s tougher on conservatives, Ashburn pointed out that Stewart was tough on Kathleen Sebelius over the plethora of Obamacare issues.
Kurtz still insisted the Clinton interview was so loving, “Hillary should send him chocolates” and offer him a Cabinet position or ambassadorship of some kind.
