shut up!

Wonkette posted the transcript of Bill O'Reilly's interview with Jon Stewart and this this is how O'Reilly describes the (emmy award winning) Daily Show and its audience:
O'REILLY: You actually have an influence on this presidential election. That is scary.

STEWART: If that were so, that would be quite frightening.

O'REILLY: But it is. It's true. I mean, you've got stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night, OK, and they can vote.[wonkette]
Read it and weep. Really. I did.


It's a great interview. It makes O'Reilly look like a complete tool and Stewart like the funniest guy on TV. This was my favorite part (though it was hard to pin down just one):

    O'REILLY: Don't you think that these guys want to be hip, when McCain was on with you -- Bush hasn't been on with you, right? You would remember that...

    STEWART: George Bush?

    O'REILLY: Yeah.

    STEWART: I don't recall the president stopping by the program.
The thing that makes me the most sad is that it's probably a representative O'Reilly interview, and still he is one of the more popular figures in cable news. I would like to console myself with the thought that people watch him because they know he's a complete nutcase, but I'm not convinced.

It gets better

Here's a torrent for the whole interview. (reg. req.)

According to O'Reilly, 87 percent of TDS viewers watch the show drunk. Not sure where he got that data point.
