Stewart heckled by Carlson
Tucker Carlson is giving out quotes
on the recent Jon Stewart confrontation on Crossfire which may or may not be famous outside of the blogosphere, but Jon Stewart is not. I don't quite think he's taking the high road, since he was already well-quoted as being derisive of Crossfire.
I started to write a post about Jon Stewart being the last to know that he's a complete tool and making it evident by showing up and calling people who are at least honest about the fact that they support one side ardently and not the other...tools. I found myself going on and on and on because it's a part of something larger. I ended up being faced with writing a book or shutting up about it and posting some links. I still might make the case but I came to the conclusion that fixating on Jon Stewart for anything plays right in to the whole scheme. The hypocrisy and blind spots are ripe for a post though, and I still might be able to get one out. But for now I'm just going to do the same as I have been doing with the celebrity information culture, which is paying most of my attention somewhere else.
