Atta boy, Jon

From Romenensko, Jon Stewart shows he kicks asses, not kisses them, on Crossfire:
[JON] STEWART: You know, the interesting thing I have is, you have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.

[TUCKER] CARLSON: You need to get a job at a journalism school, I think.

STEWART: You need to go to one. The thing that I want to say is, when you have people on for just knee-jerk, reactionary talk...

CARLSON: Wait. I thought you were going to be funny. Come on. Be funny.

STEWART: No. No. I'm not going to be your monkey...

STEWART: I watch your show every day. And it kills me.

CARLSON: I can tell you love it.

STEWART: It's so -- oh, it's so painful to watch...

CARLSON: Is this really Jon Stewart? What is this, anyway?

STEWART: Yes, it's someone who watches your show and cannot take it anymore.
