The most respected man in journalism

Jon Stewart goes toe to toe with professional liar Betsy McCaughey.  It's painful to watch, seriously painful.  My wife is wondering why I keep shouting at the computer.  I wish more people took her on as directly as Stewart does.  Best line: "I like you, but I don't understand how your brain works."

* Yes, the "Most respected man in Journalism" comes from an internet poll, but it's kinda sad when Stewart really is the most willing to call bullshit on these scaremongers

I want to have about 100 of Jon Stewart's babies. The old fashioned way.

How damn sad is it that we have to look to a comedian to give us the interviews that JOURNALISTS should be giving?

Somewhere along the line, reporters decided that it was too uncouth to call someone out when they blatantly lie in interviews. And now they wonder they can't touch the ratings of TDS.

Watching her argue is like a thousand tiny needles being shoved under my nails...again...and again...and again.

How is Jon Stewart so awesome?! It's almost not fair to the rest of us.
