Jon Stewart, My Hero

Apparently, Jon Stewart just totally bitchslapped Tucker Carson of CNN's Crossfire. I haven't seen it yet, but you can read the transcript, and there's reportedly video here [update: link deleted, see below] (though I can't get it to work). Here's just one of many great quotes:

What you do is not honest. What you do is partisan hackery. You have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.

It's about time Jon got a chance to take the media to task in their own forum (he's been doing it for years on the Daily Show, of course). Jon Stewart is my hero!

Update: OK, I've actually seen the video now and the transcript just doesn't do this justice. Media Matters has the video. Go watch it.

He talked about it last night on the daily show. I love it.
