Jon Stewart on CNN's Crossfire

by Mike Shea on 18 October 2004

is perhaps the best television interview or debate I've ever seen Stewart is a master on the Daily Show and I just bought his book on CD to listen to in my car. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"I made a special effort to come on the show today, because I have privately, amongst my friends and also in occasional newspapers and television shows, mentioned this show as being bad. And I wanted to -- I felt that that wasn't fair and I should come here and tell you that I don't -- it's not so much that it's bad, as it's hurting America. So I wanted to come here today and say...Stop. Stop, stop, stop, stop hurting America."

Stewart is the greatest journalist of our time.
