Jon Stewart Tangles with CNN’s Crossfire

Jon Stewart was a guest on CNN’s Crossfire last week and took the opportunity to condemn their show as “partisan hackery” and pleaded with them to “stop hurting America.” Most definitely a fun interview to watch.

I especially enjoyed the part where Stewart pokes fun at Tucker Carlson’s stupid bow tie to strengthen his case that CNN’s Crossfire is no more than “theatre”. This is also priceless:

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.

Update: I found a better version of the video with the commercials cut out.
