And Now For Something Completely Different:
Jon Stewart on Crossfire (transcript)
STEWART: But the thing is that this -- you're doing theater, when you should be doing debate, which would be great.

BEGALA: We do, do...

STEWART: It's not honest. What you do is not honest. What you do is partisan hackery. And I will tell you why I know it.

CARLSON: You had John Kerry on your show and you sniff his throne and you're accusing us of partisan hackery?

STEWART: Absolutely.

CARLSON: You've got to be kidding me. He comes on and you...

STEWART: You're on CNN. The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls. What is wrong with you?
Hilarious! The host of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, "The Most Trusted Name in Fake News", is treated by the hosts of Crossfire, "Debating the issues that impact your life", as if Stewart were a reporter. Stewart, the comedian, comes across as caring more for integrity in the news that the debate hosts...

Does anyone really consider Crossfire to be a debate show?
