1. "self-descibed" is not very complimentary

2. They mock themselves that way when they get "scolded" by

the RW or the Beltway for their schtick.

Like Jon said:
"Our lead in is puppets making prank phone calls"

like

"Why the fuck are you taking us seriously?"

6. Jon played clips of himself interviewing Paula Broadwell...

... she was fawning over Petraeus in the interview.

Jon said "How could I have missed that I must be the worlds worst journalist"

They he said "Wait a minute I am not a journalist. I am a comedian."

3. The classic moment when it all changes!

Jon Stewart on CNN Crossfire!



This is what sank that program. All should watch it and see for themselves why corporate news media are irrelevant and a comedy network can blow them away.

It's brilliant! If you haven't yet seen Stewart own bowtie guy, this is a must view.

5. Watch it again!

Stewart pwns them. Bowtie guy tries to salvage the day but he keeps digging deeper. Stewart brings down Crossfire. A few weeks later, it's gone. They never recovered from this.

Jon Stewart Wins; CNN Cancels Crossfire

Truly, this is an important political moment. Unfortunately, people still haven't learned. It's sad.
