O’Reilly Teases Jon Stewart over Departure: Where’s He Gonna Mock Fox Now?

bill jonBill O’Reilly took some shots tonight at his sparring partner Jon Stewart over his departure from The Daily Show. O’Reilly had some fun poking fun at Stewart getting “fired” and the very idea of a 42-day-long Daily Show online marathon.

He said, “I’m worried about Stewart. No longer will he have a TV show available to mock Fox News.”

“If you are concerned for Jon Stewart’s welfare,” he told viewers, “as I am, and you see him on the street, gently talk to him about Fox News. Let him vent to you about us. It’s the humane thing to do.”

There’s been a report circulating that The Daily Show has been inviting Stewart’s cable foes to send him off with a giant FU on his final show, and O’Reilly’s rumored to be on the list.
