A Crossfire of Cream Pies

This has put [Jon] Stewart in the amazing position of being able to criticize the media while assuming no responsibility for showing them how it should be done. -- Mark Evanier

The blogosphere is all agogasphere about Jon Stewart's recent appearance on Crossfire, with almost every blog I regularly visit boiling over with one or opinion or another on it. Mark Evanier (link above) gets closest to my feelings, which comes down to the recurrent nightmare I've been having that I turn on CBS News and Stewart has replaced Dan Rather...

... and nobody can tell the difference.

It's a sad thing that the Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly's of the media have been answered with the equally obnoxious Michael Moore and Jon Stewart's of the opposing side. A plague on all their houses.
