Caught in the Crossfire: CNN is cancelling its right-left shoutfest "Crossfire". This comes only months after The Daily Show's Jon Stewart appeared on the show, denounced it as partisan hackery, and called conservative commentator Tucker Carlson a "dick".

I honestly don't know if Jon Stewart's assessment of the show is accurate, because I never bothered to watch Crossfire. I am, however, a loyal viewer of The Daily Show, and I'm glad that Jon Stewart's pearls of wisdom are finally being taken seriously by the mainstream media. Who knew that a Comedy Central show that comes on after another show about "puppets making crank phone calls" would have so much influence on the rest of the media?
