Crossfire Continued

The Rude Pundit has more on Jon Stewart's appearance on Crossfire. (As always, not for the squeamish or humorless.)

In watching the tape of the now infamous spot again, I was struck by what was happening to Jon as he begged Carlson and Begala to listen to his message - he was slowly realizing that, indeed, they are not simply ignorant of the effect such 'news' programs have on the society at large; it's worse than that - they just don't care. It's what we've all suspected, but to have our fears confirmed was truly something to behold. I shared Jon's increasing frustration as the truth hit home, and then the slumping resignation.

The only saving grace for the reality-based community is The Daily Show. Which, of course, we already knew.
