Glenn Beck Targets Jon Stewart on Farewell Show (Video)
The Fox News host says it's a numbers game when it comes to a cable showdown with "The Daily Show."
Talk show host Glenn Beck used part of his farewell program Thursday to take a couple of digs at his TV nemesis Jon Stewart.
Beck's potshots were primarily a numbers game: He compared his own monologue (21 minutes) to Stewart's Daily Show one (6 minutes); he touted his total air time (42 minutes) against Stewart's (22 minutes, including guests); and finally, he introduced his writing staff to prove he believes in what he says, because otherwise, how would he be able to talk for so long on the air with so little help?
The conservative pundit illustrated the Daily Show vs. Glenn Beck Program disparity by showing a picture of Stewart and his writing staff at the Emmys. Beck pointed out that Stewart employed a writing crew of anywhere between 15 and 40 staffers while he had just two: Dan and Pat (last names undisclosed), whom he paraded out to viewers and shook hands with.
