Great, great interview with Jon Stewart on CNNs Crossfire. I love seeing him in situations outside his own show because we can see his own views as opposed to the Daily Shows views (I assume they’re mostly the same, but several people have input into the Daily Show)
Here is the transcript of the interview. Just reading it didn’t do it justice though. Since the transcript denotes the laughter you don’t get the sense of the state of the hosts. It seemed more light hearted. You could see it was much more confrontational from the clip. If you happen to have BitTorrent you can get it from here
The best part was when Tucker Carlson was trying to slam Stewart for not asking “hard questions” when John Kerry came on. Stewarts reply, in summary, was “You know the system is screwed when national news shows are taking integrity queues from a comedy show preceded by puppets making crank calls.”
All I can say is that we’re paying an extra $40ish/month just to watch the Daily Show and it’s worth every penny. GO JON GO!
