Jon Stewart: I’m a Socialist

Roger Ailes was right. Earlier this week, the Fox News president made waves by asserting that Jon Stewart confessed to being a “socialist” while the two were in a bar once. Outlets such as Huffington Post and Mediaite reported the story as an accusation or an open question. It isn’t. Appearing on CNN in the year 2000, the comic openly explained his ideology.

After a caller on the December 15, 2000 Larry King Live asked about being objective, Stewart conceded, “I think I would say I’m more of a socialist or an independent.”

He added, “No one would ever I think watching our show think that, boy, that guy is just leaning so far right.” [MP3 audio here.]
