There's been some recent hype over John Stewarts appearance on CNN's Crossfire, where it was expected for him to be a "funny monkey" and he did a complete 180 and attacked the shows hosts, calling them "partisan hacks" and "cheating the public". It's pretty entertaining to watch, even though it a pretty serious discussion.

Personally, I thought it was great. I like Jon Stewart a lot and it was pretty refreshing to see him actually stand up and tell these people what's on his mind, rather than playing along with their scripted format.

My favorite part is when the right-wing host tries to counter Stewart about going too easy on Kerry when he had the opportunity to interview him on the show and not pressing the issues. Stewart then responds with something along the lines of: I'm on Comedy Central, my show is led into by puppets making crank phone calls; you're on CNN.

This clip is about 20 minutes long and unfortunately contains commercials, leaving only about 15 minutes of actual interview time.

Anyway, here's the torrent.

I respect him for not beating the shit out of the bow-tie guy. By the end they were fucking terrified to have Jon actually get a full sentence out.

I just finished reading the transcript. (Don't have broadband so coudln't watch the episode.)

Good stuff, and I am glad Jon Stewart stuck to his guns. It's painfully typical how Tucker just played off any problem with his show or any other show on CNN by claiming that Stewart doesn't play hardball about politics on his Comedy Central show. Now this "Wounds that Never Heal" crap is going to be played on tons of major TV networks, really close to the election- and I haven't seen it yet, (but unlike rabid anti-Michael Moore folks, I will actually watch it so I know what I'm talking about if I end up bashing it) but from what I've heard so far, it's no more a neutral documentary sans partisanship than Fahrenheit 9/11. (but F 9/11 never claimed to be taking a neutral journalistic view of the two candidates- that's just something the right has attacked it for by running around with dictionary definitions of "documentary".) From what I've read it links Kerry to the North Vietnamese and all this other hogwash which is basically just trying to play upon ignorant perceptions out in America that liberal can be equated with traitorous, Communist, or sympathetic to America's enemies. Yet this film is going to be on major TV networks and F 9/11 is not, and in fact has been hindered in every step of its distribution. And then on top of all of that the fact that many people have the nerve to cry that America's mainstream media is biased to the left--- it's all just absurd.

I saw this. I was very impressed with Jon Stewart. It was interesting to see him be so emotional about something; you could tell, towards the end, how angry he was.

I agree, I think he said what needed to be said. He was able to keep his composure for the most part and stayed calm.

Which one are you downloading? If it's the ifilm one, reinstall one of the codecs and try again.

Maybe we could just FTP it?

I read the transcript, but I'm not gonna bother downloading it with my 56K.

I don't need to see it to know that Jon Stewart has balls of steel.

Oh I was bluffing, I just finished watching it. I love how Bow-Tie's only defense against Jon is to cut to a commercial break.

Just watched it on iFilm, I'll have to try to download it when I get back to the dorm for easier viewing. I hated that guy with the bowtie just for wearing the bowtie, but hell if Stewart didn't make them both look like idiots. It was pretty pathetic how they were trying so hard to not let him complete a thought, and he still owned them both.

Mr. Bowtie was on Real Time with Bill Mahr last week with George Carlin, and he said he'd defend a news reporter even if he put "the troops" in danger...because a newsman has the right to report the truth no matter what. So yeah he's a dick. The other guy's ok.

I watched that crossfire. Watching Jon Stewart tear people apart like that is just something to be seen, it was like cutting loose a lion in a field of gazelles.

I always hated Tucker Carlson (the bowtie guy.) One of the many right-wing talkshow hosts pawning themselves off as "journalists" and going around saying Bush did the right thing sitting in a classroom doing nothing during the 9/11 attack.

I think the funniest thing is the aftermath. All the news media (Salon, etc) seem to be in complete agreement with Jon... and somehow miss the fact that he was taking ALL journalists to task, not just CNN.

It went right over all of their heads.
