Jon Stewart Is My Hero

The great Jon Stewart's appearance on Crossfire [MOV] (a transcript) was one of the most important moments in television history - a turning point that will surely have wide reaching ramifications for generations to come.

It is already transforming CNN.

Earlier this evening, I came across a Boing Boing item, "CNN 'Crossfire' host Carlson to stop hurting America," that alerted me to the wonderful effect Stewart is having on that network. The story is covered in more detail in the Associated Press' article "CNN Lets 'Crossfire' Host Carlson Go".

CNN U.S. Network chief executive Jonathan Klein was quoted as saying:
"I guess I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp,"

Truly, it is a great day for justice.

DRAFT JON STEWART FOR U.S. PRESIDENT!
