Yesterday (?), John Stewart visited the O'Reilly Factor where he had a refreshingly blunt exchange about politics and the role of Fox News in it. My favorite line of Stewart's: "You've became the sanest host at Fox News" But you know there's a punch line to this, so ...
You're absolutely right, rosborne! Knowing how O'Reilly can rip people
apart, he was very civilized with John. He likes him, and John is a likable guy,
he can turn around O'Reilly's accusations, like making fun of people on his show, and make it understandable.

Satire as a second order form of reporting current events has proven very effective, even if the original intent was to entertain. I don't think Jon Stewart set up to become a media icon of the decade, but people trust him, and his research team is the best in all of the land.
I never want him as president. I want him right where he is, as long as I can convince him to stay there.
