Fox News host Sean Hannity says Jon Stewart missed something when he railed against Hannity's supposed support for Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy on Monday's "Daily Show."

Stewart, whose show was in reruns last week as the Bundy standoff with Bureau of Land Management agents ended with the agents returning confiscated cattle and retreating, opened his show talking about the subject.

Stewart took on Hannity for backing the rancher's efforts. He then played clips of Hannity over the years saying people can't pick and choose which laws they want to follow.

Story continues below video.



But Hannity on Tuesday said Stewart left out a few clips. He then played a montage of himself talking to Bundy over several days and decrying the "lack of proportionality" the government was showing by sending in 200 armed agents and snipers to collect an unpaid grazing fee.

Hannity said he never claimed Bundy was right to break the law.

He then turned the tables on Stewart, asking if he stands with Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, who has called Bundy's supporters "domestic terrorists."

Hannity also showed video of Stewart at his "Rally to Restore Sanity" in Washington at which he welcomed singer Yusuf Islam, the former Cat Stevens, who endorsed a fatwa to kill writer Salman Rushdie.

Islam later said his words were a bad joke.
