In the Crossfire

Jon Stewart went on Crossfire last Friday, facing Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala. They were expecting Stewart to come out and be focused on laughs, but they were in for a shock. Stewart basically called both of them out for being political hacks and said that Crossfire and shows like it, while professing to be an honest debate, are really dishonest and "bad for America." It was brilliant. It was so refreshing and exciting to have someone go on the show and instead of playing along, really call things as they are. I know Stewart is going to catch a lot of flack, but this is something that needed to happen. We need more of us to stand up and speak the truth. You can watch the clip yourself here.
