Jon Stewart Rocks Crossfire

In one of the most refreshing journalistic forays I have seen in a long time, Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, appeared on the CNN program Crossfire with Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson. What took place in those 15 minutes was television history. Jon Stewart, there to promote his new book, America, instead chose to lambaste the pompous hosts for "hurting America" and being "partisan Hacks".

The complete transcript is here:

"...and you are as big a dick here as you are on other shows."

It is a sad commentary on the media in America when the most honest refreshing and outspoken political voice belongs to a man who's show is preceded by puppets that make prank phone calls.
