Jon Stewart on Larry King Live
Jon Stewart goes on “Larry King Live” to discuss his upcoming rally and why CNN sucks so much. Breaking news: They will have toilets available at the rally.
YouTube has the full video but, oddly, won’t permit embedding.
TPM’s Jillian Rayfield has a nice summary:
Jon Stewart was on Larry King Live last night, and didn’t let the fact that he was on CNN deter him from criticizing the network. He said to King, who is leaving CNN, “you’re the last guy out of a burning building.”
When King asked later why Stewart picks on CNN so much, Stewart replied that it’s because “you’re terrible.”
He called CNN’s use of its vast resources a “squandered opportunity,” adding: “CNN has an opportunity to be a real arbiter. But being a real arbiter means sometimes taking a stand.”
[…]King also asked about Stewart’s upcoming “Rally To Restore Sanity” in Washington, D.C. on October 30, which NPR has barred its employees from attending. “As a countermeasure against NPR, to fight back,” Stewart said, “I have prohibited my employees from describing events in esoteric terms.”
“They are guessing it’s political” he added, “they are guessing wrong.”
