Wow! I just mean wow! I've seen some comments on the Jon Stewart appearance on Crossfire, but I finally got around to watching it. If you haven't seen it yet see the links below to download it. Stewart took Crossfire to task over their calling themselves a "debate show" but then allowing politicians to spew their rhetoric without confronting them on it. Tucker Carlson tried to put this back on Stewart asking him why Stewart doesn't confront the politicians on his comedy
show The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
It didn't play well for Carlson and at one point Stewart called Carlson a dick. Carlson tried to blow it off as Stewart finally getting into his comedy act, but it was clear, with his fake laugh, that he was stunned.
He was on the show to promote his book America.
For the video

If you have bittorrent (if you don't, check it out, it's the best for filesharing) here is a torrent file (Hat tip:Anti-Hero who also has some comments).

There's a lot of discussion on the net, here are others commenting.

I agree too!!! I have watched Jon Stewart every night for the last year, and yes he is bias, but can you blame him? He says (on national television) what everyone else is wanting to say, but who are to afraid to say it. Carlson got what was coming to him GO JON!!!!!!!
