Stewartivism - It's funny because it's TRUE

Why is it that comedians seem to be the only ones not afraid to tell it like it is? Because Jon Stewart is not afraid of scarring his reputation and/or political ambitions, he just lays it all out there.

First there was the moment on Crossfire where he basically told them that their rhetoric was destroying America:

And then, the latest Jim Cramer interview where he lays into him about not telling America what was really going on in the Stock Market leading up to the economic crisis:

  1. LOVE Jon Stewart. I think he was in top form for the Crossfire interview; Cramer pretty much took a hit for his whole network (I wouldn't say Jon's questions were unfair in any way though).
