God Bless Jon Stewart

This transcript of Jon Stewart on Crossfire is truly priceless. You can almost smell Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala sweating.

It really is a shameful situation when a self-professed "fake newsman" has to lecture "real" newsmen on journalistic principles.

(Of course, the Confidence Man realizes the subtlety of Stewart's more trenchant point: that Carlson and Begala are entertainers no less than Stewart himself is. And that's what really upset them.)
