In a recent exchange between Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly on “The Daily Show”, the two talked about such topics as Stewart’s directorial debut, and O’Reilly’s latest book but also got into a heated exchange about Fox News.
During this exchange, Stewart noted that Fox News has been feeling singled out by all the Justice Department's attention regarding the recent seizure of Fox news phone lines as part of a leak investigation.

"What group do you want to zero in on?" O'Reilly said.
"Fox viewers?" Stewart quipped.
