Old-school progressive Bob Beckel dresses down baby liberal Jon Stewart


Fox News’ Bob Beckel surprised his co-hosts on “The Five” by suggesting the U.S. might want to hold off on issuing student visas to Muslims until the administration gets a tighter grip on who’s in the country already. Beckel stuck by his statement despite a backlash from fellow liberals who thought he’d finally gone over to the dark side. He was not, however, about to let a young whippersnapper like Jon Stewart get away with questioning his progressive credentials.

So J Stuart attacked me and FN.

Beckel’s not even the first blowhard to call out Jon Stewart this week.

I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz – I mean Jon Stewart @thedailyshow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated.
