Jon Stewart on Crossfire

BoingBoing, Waxy, even Slashdot carried the story; Jon Stewart (my favourite commentator/comedian/journalist) appearing on CNN’s Crossfire [transcript] ostensibly to promote his new book, managed not to mention the book and opted to berate his interviewers instead. [More mirrors] “Stop, stop, stop, stop hurting America.”“You are partisan, what do you call it, hacks.”

Although this is making a big splash across the interweb, it seems Stewart has a history of telling the truth to CNN reporters. I found another great example from a couple of years ago.
