Stewart on Crossfire

Finally! I've found a site that has links to the video from this great interview with Jon Stewart on CNN's Crossfire.

He basically said what needs to be said as far as chiding the media for wholeheartedly contributing to the polarizing of America. i mean, a show where two talking heads--one from the left, one from the right--throw shallow, personal jabs at the opposing side and call it "debate" is one of the reasons why the partisanship has escalated in this election to a new and ridiculous level.

People on the right think that if those on the left disagree with them, they're attacking their moral character. People on the left think that those on the right are trying to impose their morals on them. Both sides are incredibly patronizing of each other to the extent that it makes me want to vomit.

So here, watch Jon Stewart tell over-paid blowhards what Americans want in their media: LINK
