The feud that will not go away continued Monday night as Jon Stewart responded to Chris Wallace after Wallace reacted to Stewart commenting about him after Wallace interviewed Stewart on Fox News Channel nine days ago.

Got that? It’s OK if you don’t – we’ll break it down for you, starting with Monday night’s “Daily Show” on Comedy Central, where Stewart got in the latest (but not necessarily the last) word in this ongoing kerfuffle.

Stewart was reacting to comments Wallace made Sunday on his Fox News show, “Fox News Sunday,” in which the veteran newsman good-naturedly sought to clarify a remark he made in his interview with Stewart a week earlier. Basically, Wallace said he made a regrettable choice of words when he said then that Fox News coverage of various news stories represented the channel’s attempt to tell “the other side of the story.” After the interview, Stewart felt Wallace’s statement was a bald admission that FNC slants its news coverage. This past Sunday, Wallace said simply that he meant to say “the full story.”

So Stewart jumped all over this Monday night, saying, “That’s your ‘setting the record straight’?! ‘I accidentally told the truth and now I wish I could take it back’?”

Well, who knows if Stewart is really angry at Wallace and Fox News or just feigning it to get some laughs on “The Daily Show,” which is, after all, a comedy show. Certainly, Stewart seemed sincere last week when he complained that FNC unfairly edited the original interview when it aired on “Fox News Sunday” a-way back on June 19.
