Gibson thinks Jon Stewart "purposefully" misunderstood being mocked over 9/11?

Author 5469
Message Frank Vyan Walton
Last week Fox News Host John Gibson decided that he's going to get into the "comedy" game and decided to make fun of Jon Stewart's viceral emotional reaction to the death, tragedy and loss of 9/11 - arguing in support of the notion that we need another 9/11 (Audio)

To which Stewart responded with.

Some idiot from Fox" was "playing the tape of me after September 11th" and "calling me a phony because, apparently, my grief didn't mean acquiescence"

But now he says Stewart has "purposefully misunderstood" him, and that Jon think's...

that he is a sacred cow and cannot, you know, be subject to an elbow now and then.

STEWART: And now it's gone.

GIBSON: It's gone.

STEWART: And they attacked it.

GIBSON: They attacked it.
