Jon Stewart = My Hero


Jon Stewart was on CNN's Crossfire recently, 13 minute streaming video here. Mr. Stewart's comments on the system and the hosts' refusal to recognize his points illustrates perfectly why I, and probably many other people, are incredibly frustrated with politics.

It also illustrates how the media completely fails provide more content than a pandemonium of parrots. Politicians are not forced to answer direct questions. Talking points are endlessly repeated. Spin, distortion, and outright falsehood are not called out. What passes for debate is more akin to professional wrestling, all show and no substance.

The Crossfire clip is a good watch, funny and intelligent, as Mr. Stewart often is. Watch it already.
