Wow, Jon Stewart just impressed me immensely. He got on Crossfire, and not only was he funny in a way that really annoyed the other people on the show, but he did it by telling that absolute, unvarnished truth. Nobody who makes the show, of course, wants to hear that, but the audience loved it, and so did I.

Here is a transcript, and here is a Slashdot article containing links to torrents of the video of the event.

I can't stop shaking my head in wonder at the sheer chutzpah of the guy. Combined with the fact that he managed to get Bill O'Reilly of Fox News to make fun of himself without him realizing he was doing it, I just can't stop being impressed. I need to see if I can start downloading copies of the Daily Show and watching it.

Current Mood: [mood icon] impressed

Comedy Central's website has the video clips

Somewhere. I can't get to it now, because it's blocked at work, but they do have most of the Daily Show clips available. Unfortunately they recently switched to windows media player format. Bleh.

I used to have a mini-crush on Jon Stuart. :) His show is one of the only reasons I miss cable.
