Better late than never

Finally saw it. The interview that brought the show down.

Did Jon Stewart actually call Tucker Carlson (that bow-tied guy from MSNBC) a d**k on National Television?? LOL!
TC reminds me of one of those puberty-angst-ridden, arrogant bullies trying hard to act like an adult, or sound intelligent. And you either try to yawn him away, or wish some other kid would come and beat the daylights out of him... right in front of you. Job well done, Jon!!!
[Jon Stewart "Crossfire" Transcript ]

So, Crossfire gets canned. CNN cut ties with TC. [No, not Tom Cruise, that's Paramount ].
And here is Jon's own spin on the show, "[Crossfire is] named after the stray bullets that kill innocent bystanders in a gangfight"... ending with a "... but tomorrow I will go back to being funny. And your show will still blow".
<- TC and his bowtie

I saw this Crossfire a while ago and Jon Stewart is (still) my hero. "You're on CNN. The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls." Haha - awesome.

The only disturbing outcome of the whole bru-ha-ha is that the Daily Show and Colbert Report is broadcast via CNN internationally. Like I said, bit disturbing, that.
