Jon Stewart Let me Down

I'm a big fan of The Daily Show. Or, more accurately, I should say that I enjoy watching it. The show is smart, funny and often addresses issues far better than any of the "legitimate" news programs.

A few weeks ago, Stewart had Bill Kristol, a well-known conservative, on. If you watch the video of the interview, you'll note that after the 7:00 mark, Stewart goes from interviewer to grandstander and attacker. Of course, Kristol could have - and should have - stopped him with a simple, "Jon, you asked me a good question. Please let me answer it without constant interruption."

Here's the interview:

Kristol's a smart guy, but he needs media training.

Maybe Bill forgot the air quotes around "first class?"
